Question: How much dessert does a food blogger eat in a weekend?
Answer: A LOT!
It’s no secret that I love dessert. But I’m not sure you realise just how much I actually eat. So I thought I would show you a typical sweet weekend.
This is going to get embarrassing… well, for me.
Dessert for dinner
I was invited to dine at Caffe Sicilia and try a few of their fabulous desserts. Life is a bit crazy at the moment and the only time Mr Sticky and I were free was an early nana dinner. Desserts for dinner? Why not!
Orange jelly with basil pearls and bergamot ice cream and edible violets.
This gorgeous dessert by Chef Heinz Beck is available at Caffe Sicilia as part of Chef Beck’s ‘Legacy Degustation’.
I really enjoyed the balance between the citrus and balsamic, it was a great palette cleanser and I think it would be great at the end of a long meal.
Unfortunately, you aren’t able to purchase the dessert on it’s own, but you can make it at home! Lifestyle Food has a recipe for a version of this dessert that you can try to cook like a three Michelin star chef too.
The dessert was served with a matching dessert wine that had a beautiful citrus note.
I didn’t know but sicily is renowned for their many outstanding dessert wines. Another great excuse to visit sicily?
Caffe Sicilia has a range of desserts available on the menu and also in the pastry case.
Our server shared that all the breads, cakes and desserts are made in house with the pastry chef working through night and day to make the diverse range.
I couldn’t resist the temptation and had to try a few goodies. The strawberry tart with a gooey custard and a chocolate cannolo.
Next time I’ll try the pastas, but for this weekend, dessert for dinner was a lovely treat.

My thanks to Caffe Sicilia and their PR Agency Wasamedia for the complimentary desserts and wine.
Dessert for Breakfast
Food bloggers show their love with food. I’m lucky to have met such fabulous ladies through our shared love of playing paparazzi to our dinner.
10+ food bloggers descended on the staff at Flour and Stone to squeal and snap photos – it was probably super frightening for the poor staff!
We designated JJ from 84th & 3rd to pick the goodies and she didn’t disappoint us.
The highlights were… everything! Seriously. Everything was awesome. But my top three were: the panna cotta lamingtons, the pies with their flaky pastry and the festive mince pies.
You can’t have a birthday party without candles and presents! Swah, the lucky duck, received lots of special food based presents and we all had a fabulous breakfast.

Dessert for Lunch
Yes. I’m still eating desserts.
To finish off my weekend I made Chocolate Candy Cane Cupcakes for the next Sweet Adventures Blog Hop.
Recipe coming to the blog soon.
Would you like to know something truly embaressing?
This blog post doesn’t even include the many other desserts I ate over the weekend that I failed to photograph, including but not limited to: advent calendar chocolate, cookies, christmas trifle and raspberry chocolate tart…. Awkward.
I ended the sweet weekend, as you expect, in a deep sugar coma.
Please. Send fruit and vegetables.
