Food as art; Black Star Pastry

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and the orange cake topped with persian figs, pistachios and flowers at Black Star Pastry in Newtown is a case in point.
Food as art
The crowd packed in the tiny Newtown café are testament to the individuality and quality of the food.  The highlight of our visit was the lamb shank and red wine pie, comprised of  feathery pastry and tender filling which was eaten too quickly to photograph.  Black Star Pastry was established by well known Sydneysider Christopher The, and one can read about his foodie adventures and passion for pudding in his online journal.
The array of desserts is bewilderingly beautiful, and one will be excused for wanting to hold on to their cake – yet won't be able to resist eating it too.
