Welsh Lady @ Rosalie, Brisbane

I am going through my pictures and at the same time rewinding my eating activities over the last few weeks, a pattern is arising; home cooked food on most weekdays with the occassional new recipe, followed by a weekly ritual of going out for a Saturday breakfast and dessert and back to eating at home.

So after a Saturday breakfast at Rosalie (that review to come soon), my friend drove us to the Welsh Lady. No, not to see a lady from Wales but an inconspicuous looking bakery that had a huge array of desserts on display. When i asked what was good, the reply was "everything!", which came make it rather hard not to take away the whole lot. 

The temptation is not uncalled for as i found out the Welsh Lady has been specialising in Wedding Cakes for 30 years running, so when it comes to making cakes taste and look good, they are the ones to go to.

One of their signature cakes is their Death by Chocolate. If you are into condensed flourless chocolate cakes, this is the one. Topped with a a mild rum ball, this was so satisfying.



The reason why you can't really see the cake is not because of the lighting but because it is that condense that it is essentially a whole block of chocolate that you are putting into your mouth (with all the good things like eggs, sugar and what not).


The lemon curd tart does a good job in balancing the chocolate fix earlier with its tangy filling. The curd is also sold separately in a jar.

Prices are around 6-8 AUD for a slice and the tarts should be around AUD 3-4.

Address and contact details:

92 Fernberg Rd, ROSALIE 4064
Ph: (07) 3368 3485
Open Tues-Sat 9am-5.30pm, Closed Sunday-Monday

Verdict: 4.5 stars out of 5 stars. If you had a meagre allowance for sugar, this is it. Can't wait to return for more goodies.
