Twenty 8 Delights is a fledgling Gold Coast cake baking business that emerged from Covid lockdown.
Sisters Sheryl and Iris Lim both have professional careers, but for Sheryl baking is her ‘happy place’.
Sheryl is an extremely talented self-trained baker who has perfected her craft by learning from the internet and recipe books, improving her skills baking for friends during Covid.
From delicious custard-filled choux buns to passionfruit meringue tarts, hazelnut domes to raspberry macarons, and white chocolate blondies to Oreo cheese cupcakes, Sheryl produces a unique range of large and small cakes, tarts and slices.
If you’re at all like me, when I indulge in a cake, I want it to be worth it. No day old doughnut or spongy cardboard cutout of a cake pleases my palate. I want the real thing, and that’s what Sheryl’s cakes are.
Twenty 8 Delight’s pièce de resistance is the full size Entremet cake. The pinnacle of French cake baking technique, an entremet is distinguished by its many different layers of cake, mousse and pastry cream with a mirror glaze. It’s so sensational that it’s a cake I’d dream about.
“Our goal is to share the delicious cakes that Sheryl makes with the Gold Coast,” Iris says. “Sheryl’s cakes are packed with flavour and too good for us to keep to ourselves.”
With a price point below that of many retail cake shops, you can order Twenty 8 Delights goodies online and arrange pickup at Varsity Lakes or delivery to your home or workplace.
