Travel writer Brooke Saward is sharing her love of sweet treats and opening Launceston’s first late night dessert house.
Ms Saward, the creator of international travel blog World of Wanderlust, has been jetsetting across the globe for the past four years.
After trying an endless amount of international desserts during her travels, the 24-year-old decided to open Charlie's Dessert House in her hometown.
“I’m crazy about desserts and I wanted to create something in Launceston that wasn’t a bar or a club, and was somewhere people could go for date night or for a special occasion,” she said.
From French pastries to American brownies, Ms Saward said her menu was constructed from a mix of her favourite recipes and her very own creations.
“The menu is literally from across the world,” Ms Saward said.
“I found the most amazing red velvet cake recipe in Washington so I’ve used that, but if it’s a recipe I can’t get a hold of like a Parisian hot chocolate, then we recipe test until it tastes right.”
While there will be plenty of sugary treats, Ms Saward said she tried to cater for a wide range of tastes.
For a healthier alternative acai bowls and a chilled cacao mousse will be on offer, as well as a range of dairy free smoothies and gluten free options.
“I’ve also selected a different flavour for each dessert, so there’s something for everybody,” Ms Saward said.
“I just really want to bring ideas to Launceston that could boost the economy and local tourism.”
Charlie's Dessert House will open from 10am to 10pm weekdays and 8am to 11pm weekends.
The store will be located on Charles Street, Launceston and is set to open its doors in September.
