It has been a dark few months for Brisbane cake, cookie and caramel tart fans, and darker still for the team behind storied baked goods dispenser Jocelyn’s Provisions. The floods that wreaked havoc across Southeast Queensland and Northern New South Wales in late-February seriously impacted the cake and bread maker’s Albion production facility, forcing Jocelyn’s Provisions to temporarily shutter operations as its headquarters was cleaned up and refitted.

In true resilient form, the Jocelyn’s crew has not only worked tirelessly to bring its Albion site back online, but also took the opportunity to hone and improve upon its already sublime product range. Now, following its official reopening on Thursday, the Jocelyn’s Provisions team is giving long-time fans a peek at what it has been working on.

Head chef Jack Griffin and his tip-top team of cake creators, treat testers and bread bakers have spent recent weeks undertaking a process of menu tweaking, crafting a host of new products as well as improving upon current lines. Customers can expect to nab Jocelyn’s Provision’s widely praised butter cakescupcakes and chocolate sour cream cakes, as well as bruleed bomboloni filled with house-made creams, chocolate and caramel, choc-dipped cannolis, new banoffee and tiramisu layer cakesParis-Brest, dipped Madeleineschocolate-caramel tartstea cakes and traditional babka.

Savoury seekers can snag gourmet piessausage rolls and sandwiches as before, in addition to soups paired with sourdough toasties and seasonal meals. Head baker Frederic Bossenmeyer, fresh from a holiday in France, has expanded Jocelyn’s established range of viennoiserie, sourdoughs, baguettes and dark rye with fougassefocaccia and Roman-style pizza a taglio.
