Sweet Envy – Introduction
Sweet Envy in North Hobart is the shop where Teena Kearney and Alistair Wise weave their magic with cakes, pies, sausage rolls, and various manifestations of classic patisserie.
The window display is pulling strollers up in their tracks and, once bitten, they keep coming back for more of the delicious cakes, pastries, macaroons, ‘real’ ice creams, biscuits and confectionery.
Alistair modestly calls it a cake shop. They both returned to Tasmania following stellar careers in London and New York to open their ‘cake shop’ and to settle down in their home state.
They quickly established a thriving trade both through the shop sales and also designing and executing stunning wedding and other special occasion cakes. The place is quite small and only seats about 8 people, but it is the takeaway trade that really thrives here.
