There are so many places to find great cake in Sydney. Our Italian population has been making gloriously soft ricotta cheesecakes since the '80s. Bondi’s Wellington Cake Shop has been giving us texturally rich and chocolate-ribboned kuglóf for even longer.

Then there are cuisine-blending cakes with yuzu, pandan, basil and ginger; and classic Country Women’s Association-style numbers with lemon drizzle.
