MELBOURNE | Dreami Cake is a patisserie that I first came across during lockdown, when Sunshine West based owner Brianna was selling macarons online as a side hustle. The business took off, as Melburnians discovered Brianna’s creations which, beyond being cute, deliver on quality and taste.
Spurred on my the support of her regular customers, and increasing demand, Brianna decided this year to dedicate herself to Dreami Cake full time, and last month opened a physical patisserie and café in the CBD. I visited for What’s On Melbourne to grab some photos the other day, and you bet I got a box of macarons for home.
It’s a cute, small space, with light pastel colours, dominated by the large display counter which showcases all of Brianna’s creations. Out the back, there’s a courtyard with more tables and seating. A love of anime, in particular Pokémon, is reflected in the venue, and the macarons.
Macarons are the signature item at Dreami Cake, and there are a lot of flavours to choose from. The majority are double stuffed, creating macarons that are taller than most. Flavours are European and Asian inspired, and include things like strawberry cheesecake; black sesame; and mango and coconut.
Beyond macarons, you’ll also find giant cookies, cakes, canelés, and more. Brianna is constantly experimenting with flavours, and there’s always something new to try. If you’ve got an event on, you can also call ahead to order custom made cakes and boxes of macarons featuring characters of your choice.
On the drinks side of things, it’s coffee and tea. There’s traditional espresso-based drinks and things like Earl Grey in teapots, along with creations like taro lattes, matcha lattes, and flavoured milk teas.
