Ditch the roses – Sweety’s Treat Boxes are a gift worth giving

At this time of year, we tend to put a lot of pressure on ourselves to find the perfect gift. It’s not just the festive period we do this in, either. Birthdays, Valentine’s Day, anniversaries – the opportunities for gift giving are nearly endless. One thing almost everyone can enjoy is a big ol’ box of doughnuts and assorted confectionary, which is why Sweety’s Treat Boxes is a big deal. This new doughnut delivery service has just launched in Brisbane, and is distributing a huge amount of tasty treats – even the covetable doughnut bouquets – just in time for Christmas. more

Indulge in guilt-free desserts after dark with Kiss the Berry’s new Up Late menu

Choosing between indulging in dessert and maintaining a summer bod is a constant mind battle. Like, sure we all try and keep active, but it's easy to undo all of that hard work with a one gluttonous dessert that more often than not involves a doughnut and/or lashings of ice-cream (and possibly vanilla cream). Well, friends, gluttony doesn't have to be the devil. Ever-popular acai joint Kiss the Berry now transforms into a dessert hang by night, launching its new Up Late menu full of sweet treats that are completely guilt free. Yep, you'll never (ever) have to question dessert again. more

Brisbane’s ten best dessert spots as voted by you!

Let’s be honest with ourselves – it doesn’t matter what you’ve had for dinner, there’s always room for dessert. Brisbane is absolutely flush with spots to get your sugar fix, whether it be in a decadent cake, a few weighty scoops of gelati or a dozen doughnuts. The EAT/drink Awards saw dozens of dessert destinations vie for your vote, but alas there could only be one winner. That doesn’t mean the other spots aren’t deserving of praise – far from it! We’ve put together a list of the top ten dessert spots in Brisbane – as voted by you – to give you a definitive list when a craving for something sweet hits. more

Enjoy a double scoop of goodness at La Macelleria’s new West End gelateria

It’s not unusual for people to travel across town to get their fix of authentic Italian gelato from La Macelleria, and if you don’t understand why then you clearly haven’t tried it. La Macelleria’s Teneriffe gelataria has been putting smiles on dials for years with its signature brand of authentic Italian gelato, which is why it is a really big deal that a second location has just opened in West End. Yep, that’s right – La Macelleria is now open on Montague Road, meaning those south of the river don’t have to travel to get some gelato in their gob. We still would, though – it’s just that damn good. more

It’s a gelati party! Gelato Messina has finally arrived in South Brisbane

We’ve been waiting oh so patiently for this day to arrive, but now it’s finally here we're not sure what to do with our hands. Full-blown pandemonium is threatening to break out with the news that at 5:00 pm this afternoon, Wednesday March 29, Gelato Messina will open the doors to its very first Brisbane gelato parlour. We’re so happy we could cry, but we'll compose ourselves just long enough to avoid watering down our sweet, sweet gelato. We’re officially saying goodbye to our summer bods without a shred of remorse – Gelato Messina is here now, and that’s all we need. more

This new manufactory of mouth-watering goodness comes from the team behind James Street’s dessert destination Jocelyn’s Provisions and is churning out cakes on cakes on cakes, as well as a scrumptious bounty of sweet and savoury treats for Jocelyn’s fans (new and old) to enjoy. more
