Sydney has just scored its first dedicated Tres Leches cakery
Sydney, you’re in for a treat. Dollops and Drizzles, a dedicated Tres Leches Cakery offering pick-up and home delivery is now taking online orders, becoming the first of its kind in Sydney. As staunch believers of the saying ‘the rest of your life begins after you realise you don’t need an occasion to eat cake’ – we are here for it
The Tres Leches, which translates to ‘three milks’ is made with, yep, you guessed it, three different types of milk. The soft airy sponge is soaked overnight in evaporated, condensed and then cream before being topped. What sets Dollops and Drizzles apart is the fact that unlike other milk cakes, each flavour on offer is steeped in its own flavoured milk – making each variety excitingly different, yet equally more-ish.
Sydney’s only dedicated milk cake operation has got 6 flavours on offer. The most popular being Lotus Biscoff. Others include Banoffee, Strawberries & Cream, Rosewater & Pistachio, Snickers and Tiramisu but let’s be real, you won’t be able to stop at just one.
Owner and chief baker, Fatima Jomaa is a make-up artist turned entrepreneur after stumbling across a video of a Tres Leches cake on TikTok. After first trying this dessert overseas and searching high and low for the milk cake that would satisfy her craving, she was left with no option but to whip it up herself. A lockdown craving soon morphed into a successful business venture as family and friends began to request orders for the revered milk cakes. And the rest is history. Running a successful online cake business out of a commercial kitchen, Fatima says the demand for her cakes has been completely overwhelming. She never imagined that she would enter lockdown, a makeup artist, and emerge a successful baker and business owner.
Dollops and Drizzles operates solely online, for pick-up and home delivery for most of Sydney and also appears at pop-ups from time to time. The demand has caused plans for expansion in the future but for now, you can order through their website.
