One of the advantages of living near Adriano Zumbo's Patisserie is being able to sample the new creations as they arrive.
One of the disadvantages is sudden, unaccountable weight gain around the midriff area - muffin top, anyone?
Another disadvantage is that a 'new' Zumbo cake appears that you don't think you've had before, and it turns out to be a 'work in progress' - the original cake has evolved into something different, yet the same.
Here are two cases in point:
Still a great pear of.
The green icing has been replaced by a square of green marzipan and a candied almond.
What the?? This is the cake formerly known as 'Blackcurrant', now called 'Vitamin C'.
And it's covered in jester's hat spines that are actually blackcurrant-y macarons. And I saw them and I ate them and liked them very much.
I have had some other new cakes as well, and you can see them here.
