So, by the time I got there on an recent Saturday morning there was a very,very long line of eager people keen to partake in 'Zumbo Mania'.
However, all our worries were gone when we got to the front of the line. We bought a couple of croissants, a few macaroons and a bright red little cake creatively entitled 'Escape from a Columbian Rainforest'.
Note to self re: macaroons. I highly recommend the salt and vinegar flavoured macaroons. Sounds odd... but tastes great!
Now for some photos of 'Escape from a Columbian Rainforest' - truly a work of (cake) art. I've taken to calling it 'Coke Can Cake with Gooey Bright Red Syrup'. I've noticed Mr Zumbo now has a new and improved version of the cake with a very life-like softdrink can lid (which is made of chocolate but painted silver). A Table for Two (an awesome foodblog with fantastic food photography) has photos of the earlier version of the cake.
Here are my photos
Ta Dah... I present the Coke Can Cake.
Aint it pretty! It's simply too good to eat.
But we must try a little. It's made of a chocolate sponge, chocolate mousse and inside there is also bright red gooey fiz wiz like syrup...yummo!
