Anyway, here is a closer look at some of the new range - and they are all tart-based creations.
What looks like an egg on the Jessica Rabbit is actually hollow shell of icing-like substance. This is a smallish tart with pieces of pandan jelly surrounded by the creamy coconut filling. Personally, I wasn't impressed with this tart - too small for the price ($7).
The Google it has a firm round of creme atop the citrusy custard in the tart. It was okay, nothing spectacular, and not offensive. At $7.90, it was alright.
Ah, Thermonuclear... looks like a reactor, tastes, well, unusual. If I can be a bit critical, I'm not sure about the flavour combination in this cake. The round, crisp shell is mint meringue, with the mint flavour being quite strong and 'toothpaste-y'. The filling actually appears to be mashed potato inserted with small peas (podded snowpeas?) and raisins. The rice pudding in the tart shell would be better off on its own, I think. This one also costs $7.90, though I doubt I will get it again.
Coincidentally, there was an episode of Heston's Feasts on recently (the Henry VIII one) that featured a dessert made of bone marrow rice pudding in the shape of a sausage, with 'mashed potato' (banana puree) and peas (pea puree dropped into liquid nitrogen). Great minds think alike - or something?
That's all for now. Further Zumbo cakes will be consumed in the new year, so you can look forward to more ramblings on the topic then. And you thought I'd stopped ...!
