…do you remember…?

It is Adriano Zumbo Patissier’s first birthday. I remember the first day I visited the shop so clearly…Actually, when I asked the girl behind the counter how long they had been open, she said three weeks, to which I replied ‘Ooh, I didn’t even notice!’. How things have changed.

Because the cakes were so special, I started taking photos straight away. The date on my first photo, of the ‘Marie’ (below left) is 29th April 2007. So it’s almost a year since I stopped by.

The one that clinched it for me, though, is the ‘Merry-go-round’ (below middle). The square of Turkish delight on top of the macaron is, well, so delightful!

I didn’t make note of the name of the cake on the right but I think it is a version of the Odeon cheesecake.


  1. oh yes, the merry-go-round was quite amazing!

    are you going to any of his cooking classes?

  2. bowb - I'm going to the 'gateaux secrets' one. Will I see you there?

  3. alas, no. but i hope to see a reveal-all expose here! :)
