    Wow that was a lot of desserts in one night! I have a major sweet tooth but even I don’t think I could tackle all of those. Shame to hear the black sesame flavor was so subtle, I would have been all over that one, seconded by Earl Grey.

  2. Christine @ Merf In Progress

    I do not understand how you fit all that food in your tiny little body!

    I could put down a bowl or three of reese’s cereal, though, for sure.

    I giggle at “nappy rash”. The word “nappy” has such a different meaning here in the U.S.

    Um, Earl Grey cake sounds like my kinda thing. And I haven’t had Reeses Puff cereal in YEARS…yum!

    upside down cakes – grass jelly – black sesame cake – it all sounds quite Alice in Wonderful – sounds like you had a great time falling down the rabbit hole!

  5. Ashley @ the fit academic

    Wow – everything sounds & looks INCREDIBLE! Bring on the food extravaganza!! : )

  6. Rach

    Aww looks like you had SUCH a great time!! And so many delicious sweets!

    lol. This post did make me chortle! It was a fab night indeed and you’re welcome to stay at my place anytime. I am, however, more excited about seeing your future home. Cakes hanging from the ceiling? I can’t wait!

    Time has lapsed since I read this earlier today. During the interim, I did a bit of work in a lab on the other side of my building. While waiting for my files to load on the computer, I opened the drawer next to me, and out popped…… a tube of diaper rash cream! HOW WEIRD!! how grotty.

    And, since I’ve started my journey on the train that is nonstop Gilmore Girls love, nearly everything reminds me of a line from it. FroYo….. HoCho!

    I’ve got a log of back posts to read on your site, what a wealth of smile-inducing moments while reading your posts! In the past, I’ve taken a few courses on writing and reading memoirs, and your narratives rank up there with the best of what I’ve read. Really.

    Glad you got to try Azuma, they do make really nice cakes and delicious matcha latte!

    How did you manage to stomach all those desserts? I would’ve burst! 😯

    From grass jelly to Reese’s Puffs! Hmm, I think my ideal dessert combination from the above would be: Black Sesame (with stronger flavor) and Signature Herbal Dessert. Although we have zillions of Korean places around here, we are seriously lacking in Taiwan. I’d like something like 85-degrees C Bakery Cafe.

    I need a crowd of Asian food-appreciating food bloggers to hang out with! Although I will be entering a China Studies clique next year, so that’s something. Taiwan won’t release decisions until after my deferral deadline, so I’m off to grad school in the fall. But that’s a story for another day!

  12. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    Haha, I LOVE Reese’s Puffs! I haven’t had them in ages… SO good.

  13. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    Seriously – I salute your dessert prowess! AWESOME!!!

    The chiffon cake looks absolutely amazing. And the dumplings?! I want to book a flight to Sydney, now. Maybe someday? The man-friend did study abroad there wayyyy back in the day.

    And that cereal… it was the ONLY cereal my brother would eat growing up. Mom would buy 3 boxes at a time. I kinda wanna make ice cream with it after reading your post.

  15. Simply Life

    what a fun foodie time!

  16. Nic@diningwithastud

    WOW everything looks so delicious. Glad you had such a great time 🙂 I do have a bit of a thing for that cereal. NOM

  17. Adrian in Food Rehab

    All those desserts! Although, I wouldn’t expct anything less from a group of food bloggers. Where there’s sugar, we follow!

  18. penny aka jeroxie

    I was at the TAiwanese dessert joint as well. Love it and wished they had one in melb.

  19. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    aww what a fun time!! and a delicious one at that 😀 I think Asian pastry shops have some of the best desserts and cakes ever! I worked at a Korean bakery a la French style and it’s so good.

  20. Anna Johnston

    You crack me up…. ‘I had a bowl, then I had another bowl’. Im impressed girlfriend, you can pack ALOT of food away. A gal after my heart. 🙂
    PS: Catch up in the flesh required ASAP Missy!

  21. Libby

    Oooh, you MUST try pandan chiffon cake. That stuff is MADNESS!

  22. Kath Lockett

    I want what you’re having. ALL of it!

  23. muppy

    Oh my goodness that is alot of food!!! Those jelly balls look intriguing 🙂

  24. Karen

    Looks like a great night! I love how you guys had multiple desserts – way to go!! 🙂

  25. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Finally! Finally I am back!
    Black vegan sesame mochi looks to-die-for.
    When I come to Australia, I think I’m willing to try a bite of kangaroo, at least if it’s in the form of chili.
    It makes me so happy to hear about your singing ecstasies.
    I would like a bathtub full of that choc-hazelnut butter, please, thanks.
    After my hazelnut butter bath, I think I’d like to “dry off” with a few hunks of Sweet Celebration Slice.
    Any leftovers thereafter may then be made into fudge for me.
    I WANT to like yoga, but I can’t, I just can’t. I’ve given up trying. I’m just far too Type A.
    I believe wholeheartedly in Crying Detoxes as well.
    I can’t tell you how much I wish *I* could meet up with you in Sydney, and then we could eat EIGHT desserts. Someday!
    And finally, I love love love the last photo of you in this post, with the fro yo. You are just the cutest thing ever. It’s official.

  26. (what runs) Lori

    Those cakes are HUGE! But amazing looking. Ooh my! I WANT one. Now. Or all of them. Cinnamon sounds great but so do the other flavors. I’m totally that person who buys a lot and takes it home (to hoard) to save for later. 😉 (like with raw vegan restaurants)

  27. msihua

    How on earth did you fit in so much food in one night?! You’re good value man… next time you come down to Melb… I’m making ur BFF take you to an all you can eat dessert thing or something..!!!

  28. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Wow, an extravaganza indeed! I have dessert envy. What a fabulous time you had. So much of what you ate I’ve never tried before! Gotta love a late night dessert stop. Or ten.

    bahaha i want magical shampoo!

  30. Susan

    I still don’t know how you fit all of that food inside of you! I love the look and flavours of those chiffon cakes.

  31. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Those cakes look amazing! And this post made me laugh 🙂 A night with you would clearly be fun from start to finish – combining that with dessert from start to finish makes for an impressive combination. You’ll have to visit Sydney more often so I can live vicariously!

    The fake yoghurt cones look edible…

    I had the Earl Grey chiffon cake and WOW, it was good. The inside was spongy and just moist enough and it tasted like tea and it wasn’t too sweet. I must have looked strange scoffing a giant piece of cake on the train. 😀 Chiffon cake looks deceptively huge.

    I never really like Asian desserts even though I am Chinese because I don’t really like the squishy texture of Asian desserts. And in regards to laughing at ridiculous things, my sister and I laugh at denture glue…actually anything fake teeth related.
