Are “chocolate pots” a new thing? I had never heard of them before August 24, 2009, when I was in the hospital with my newborn baby. I was trying to decide on my dinner from the hospital menu, and when I got to the desserts, I saw “chocolate pot”….
I love being back in Sydney. There are so many amazing bakeries to explore. I’ve been back in Sydney for almost 6 months but I’ve hardly explored outside of my suburb, mostly because the most amazing bakeries are at least one hour away from me (or at least the ones I know about are!).

I instantly perked up because Epping is not far away from me at all. A few days later, I was standing inside of Sweetness The Patisserie with my 2-year-old son, trying to make a decision on what to buy from this beautiful shop.
The shop is indeed beautiful. I wasn’t brave enough to ask if I could take a photo inside the shop, so all you get is this sideways shot of the outside! The inside of the shop is loaded with sweet treats of all kinds, including macarons, marshmallows, fudge, toffee, truffles, or, easier yet, let’s just say that if it’s sweet, it’s in this shop!
Wow, the title of this post is a mouthful! If you can think of an easier name for these cupcakes, just let me know!
