Local residents and visitors to this year’s Bankstown Bites Food Festival may want to hit the sweet spot by joining the dessert-only food tour.
The Sweet Tour will be one of 20 Food Tours on offer from 10.30am to 2.30pm on Saturday 29 July.
Those with a sinfully sweet tooth will have the chance to stop and shop at Sinbad Bakery, Sweet City Café, Café Amoura and Sweet Fantasy Cakes.
For 24 years, Sweet Fantasy Cakes has whipped up devilishly delicious cakes, sweets and treats for the community, which owner Konstantina Georgoulas.
“Our profiteroles, éclairs and red velvet cake are some of our customers’ favourites. And, we’ve been working on gluten-free options as well,” she said.
One of the items that will definitely be on this sugary outing will be Sweet Fantasy Cakes’ famous custard galaktoboureko, a traditional Greek dessert.
“It’s a popular dessert. It’s a phyllo-pastry filled with semolina custard that’s finished with syrup. My dad, Arthur, has been making this for more than two decades and the recipe hasn’t changed,” Ms Georgoulas said.
If you can’t catch Sweet Fantasy Cakes on the Food Tours, they will also be sponsoring one of this year’s newest Bites events, the Giant Cup Cake Eating Competition, set to take place on the main stage in Olympic Parade, Bankstown, at 2.30pm.
It’s first in, best dressed. The first five visitors willing to sign-up to the inaugural and slightly crazy event will automatically become contestants.
Administrator, Richard Colley, said the novelty event would add some laughter and even more fun to Bites.
“You’d want to be a confectionary king or queen to be able to handle that much sugar,” Mr Colley said.
“I can’t wait to see them try. My best advice would be not to eat too much beforehand, which might be hard considering they’ll be at a food festival with plenty of options.”
