Some more Adriano Zumbo cakes, including a couple of new mid-season releases:
The traffic cone-shaped 'Is anybody working' is very fragile. It's a cone of wobbly mousse encased in bright orange crumbs. I took one of these to a friend's house and it barely survived the journey. It tasted alright, though.
'Not too s-h-a-b-b-y' is my favourite of this batch - the chocolate mousse is rich and smooth, and the cake looks so tall, dark and handsome. I'd call this one 'Prince Charming'.
Another tart-based creation. 'La Premiere of Tom and Jerry' is a cacophony of flavours, though it's the almond mousse that dominates. The taste is reminiscent of Perkin's Paste - I felt like the class misfit that tried to get attention by eating the paste out of the jar...
'Pilgrim's Delight' is a not-so-delightful dome of strange-tasting cream topped with super-bitter burnt orange. The best part for me was the praline crumbs and the cheesecake base, which I saved to eat last.
So, there are a couple of so-so cakes out of this lot. I noticed a new vanilla layered cake called 'V8' when I was there with My Food Trail, but haven't seen it since... I want it, now! Stay tuned to see if it turns up again.
