Amie Barbeler got her chocolate on, all in the name of quality event reporting...



I approached this month’s Smooth Festival of Chocolate like I would if I were shopping while starving: I literally threw anything that looked remotely delicious into my trolley (aka: mouth). After avoiding breakfast, so I could have as much room available for edible decadence as possible, I started my cacao journey at Chocolate Del Mondo, where I dived face first into a Volcanic Chocolate Eruption ($10).



Imagine a soft pyramid of chocolate cake erupting pure Belgian milk chocolate... I was off to a solid start.



Next, I hit up Black Star Pastry for a slice of their summery White Chocolate Strawberry Watermelon Cake ($9). In between, I cleansed my palate with '3 Bean' Coffee Tim Tams.



After burping a marshmallow back up, I knew I'd hit my limit, so I valiantly rolled myself back to Black Star Pastry in the name of Pastry Tacos ($10/3). No regrets; although my pants may beg to differ.



My pants also say: if you are really serious about eating the most out of the third Smooth Festival of Chocolate next year, it’d be prudent to invest in some weekly practice at festival standout - Black Star Pastry - in Newtown.
