Walking into the Cooper and Milla’s Armadale store (they also have one in Toorak) the abundant display of pretty desserts and savouries is breathtaking. My eyes didn’t know where to begin. The piles of pillowy meringues…the flourless fig cake that looked like a piece of art…? My willpower being tested is an understatement.
So when in doubt, I sampled a few things. The hard-to-resist chocolate brownie was rich in flavour and suitably gooey. The lemon curd in the raspberry slice was genius in keeping the slice light and tangy. And the pretty mini-carrot cake was moist and light, not overly sweet or oily as some carrot cakes can be. Tick.
I don’t often review such decadent sweets as I like to search for healthier alternatives, but given my first impressions and Sofia’s warm hospitality (FYI-all staff were gorgeous to all customers) I had to share this find with you all.
Cooper and Milla’s is a gorgeous place when you feel like indulging with a good friend or lover. If you’re going to treat yourself, do it well.
They make all their goodies in-house, including some of the most sensational cakes made to order.
