MELBOURNE | Le Yeahllow is a cake shop known for its beautifully presented cakes and baked treats. They’ve just opened their second store in Melbourne’s CBD, which I recently visited for What’s On Melbourne.
Co-founder Samsky Yeung is the man behind Le Yeahllow’s creations. Samsky worked in venues like Flower Drum and White Mojo, where he developed a knack for creating ‘edible art’ desserts. His skill is evident when you look at the cake cabinet at Le Yeahllow, which is filled with colourful, creative looking treats.
Cakes lean towards the light end of the spectrum, featuring a mixture of classic flavours and unique flavour combinations. There’s whole cakes, petit gateau, and macarons, along with a selection of cookies, loose leaf teas, and other things to enjoy in store or take away, packaged as gifts.
‘Balloon Puppy’ is moist chocolate base cake layered with black tea whipped ganache, tangy sour cherry compote, shortbread crumble, and chocolate feuilletine. It comes topped with an edible mini balloon puppy. ‘Mango Yo-Yo’, my favourite, is a light mango cheesecake with mango confit, creamy yoghurt mousse, mango coulis, and chiffon sponge cake on a sable base.
Macaron flavours include things like yuzu, Earl Grey and calamansi, and blueberry cheesecake. To drink, it’s an assortment of coffee and non-coffee based lattes, Valrhona hot and iced chocolate, and house-made tea and fruit spritzes.
