This Sydney Cafe's Flower-Covered Cakes Will Brighten Up Your Day

The Instagram possibilities are endless.

In the prettiest collaboration ever, a Sydney florist and pastry chef have come together to open Petal Met Sugar.

The Woolloomooloo store sells flowers and desserts, the combined passions of florist Angela Wong and pastry chef Elsa Li. The pair met four years ago when Angela asked Elsa to cater the desserts for her wedding.

Inside the store, there are separate counters to buy flowers or desserts, plus tables to dine-in and admire everything.

The minimalist space was designed as a blank canvas to showcase the flowers and desserts. “They’re so colourful and pretty so they speak for themselves,” says Wong.

However the best thing about Petal Met Sugar is that all sweet treats are topped with edible flowers, such as violas.

The menu will change according to what flowers are in season.

At the moment, you'll find "Terrarium", a white chocolate dome with cocoa nib soil, passion fruit and finger lime pannacotta, and lemon balm.

As well as a peach tea cake with oolong tea brulee, peach compote, coconut macaron, and coconut glaze.

And also tiny adorable banana bread.

For Christmas, Wong says to expect a dessert with gingerbread, and something "snow-inspired".

For the prettiest party in town, the duo also cater events.
