200th Post: Of course it's Zumbo

Guess what? This is my 200th post! And wouldn't you know it, it's all about Adriano Zumbo cake.
Well, one cake in particular - there weren't too many of the new range left at 3pm today, so I went for this new one.

It's a version of the popular and perennial Sachertorte, but made with white chocolate and pear. The second-bottom layer is dark bitter chocolate, and this white, bright creation is topped with a flake of silver leaf (at least I hope it's silver leaf, not aluminium foil!).

So here is Sacher's Sister, Blanca.


  1. Ooh and I thought I tried everything! Now I have to go back for this one!

    Congrats on 200th post Belle :)

  2. ooh! that looks yum. did you like it?

  3. Congrats on 200 posts ^^! Celebration with Zumbooo XD

  4. That cake is very nice to look at with all the layers. I'm not usually a fan of white chocolate, but the pear and the dark chocolate ganache sound like they'd really set it off well.

  5. Congrats on your 200th post! :) OH MY GOD. I have to go there and have this cake with my Austrian friend! It looks amazing.

  6. hi Karen - and the cakes all have names now, too. Weird ones.

    hi bowb - it was a bit too sweet for me, though the dark chocolate layer was nice. I left that layer till last!

    hi FFichiban - thanks!!

    hi Arwen - yes, the pear was delicious. Wish there was more of it.

    hi Lorraine - the cake is a great version of sachertorte. You and your friend will love it!
