Pick up from Thornbury or Brunswick.
Having started in Castlemaine, Icecream Social has since made waves in the northern suburbs of Brunswick and Thornbury. Owner Helen Addison-Smith (who you might know from Loafer Bread in North Fitzroy or Each Peach in Brunswick East) does ice cream, and she does it well. She has since added a repertoire of pies (both sweet and savoury) to her portfolio – all of which should be tried. But it's the cake-curious that are reading this, and cakes you too shall have. Pre-order whole cakes or get them to go by the slice, the only catch is you need to pick it up from either the Brunswick or Thornbury store. Tricolour ice cream cakes sit atop brownie bases, or personalised cakes complete with icing borders (à la Costco) are made to order with raspberry red velvet or vegan hummingbird innards. Whatever you fancy, you can order it here.
