What would I give to be half as creative as the guys behind the genius that is LuxBite?
Admittedly, I am very bias when it comes to their selections. I can’t help it. Everything is so beautiful and cute. It appeals to my inner girlie kawaii senses.
From the very first taste of their famous Kaya Toast Macarons all those years ago, both The Boy and I have followed LuxBite’s journey into stardom.
Now, they’ve made it even easier for me to stalk them with their new creative baby, T by LuxBite just down the road from my workplace in the city.
So what is T by LuxBite and how is it different to the big mama in South Yarra?
Apart from the shared jewel case of macarons, T by LuxBite is a strict Tart shop.
From the very technical to the very beautiful and finally to the most ridiculous cute tarts I’ve ever seen, Tarts by LuxBite has got you covered.
How it works? The price range of their tarts is very simple, it goes by the shape of the tarts you are after. From rectangle, triangle, round, to St. Honore, special and finally a cake tart. It’s not rocket science.
We first managed to sample a few of the tarts when they opened up a booth at the recent Cake Bake & Sweet Show (where the one and only Cake Boss attended).
From there, we were invited to their launch night many weeks ago, where we ate even more tarts!
Then they had a major opening day where I woke up at not-funny-o-clock and watched the Lion Dance ushering in prosperity and good luck. I also bought the tarts above.
I couldn’t resist. There was a bear! Not just any bear.

Such interesting flavour combinations. I really must try them out.
If I can only fit in 1 tart, which one should I go for?
