Loafer Bread’s Andrea Brabazon bakes these delicate pastries, slices, cakes and biscuits and lays them out in a simple wood and glass cabinet at her bakery in North Fitzroy.  In the way of an artist Andrea takes simple organic ingredients; flour, butter, eggs and sugar and through a mixture of finely honed skill and magical pâtissiering she creates this exquisite edible exhibition – not just once a year but every day.  Whenever I go to the shop and buy something from the display I feel a little bit guilty because they look almost too beautiful to eat – almost.

Each year just before Christmas Andrea makes a short run of fruit mince tarts (you may or may not have noticed them in the pic above). The thing is Andrea’s fruit mince tarts are around for this week only (shorter than the apricot season). They’re a bit pricey but remember this is organic pastry at it’s best.  Find them here in the webshop and please enjoy them slowly.
