Adriano Zumbo Winter 2009 collection - at last!

Contrary to popular belief, I did not camp outside Adriano Zumbo Patissier this morning, waiting for the new Winter 2009 range to be unveiled. I waited until the civilised hour of 10am, and lucky I did, as not all the cakes were out yet.

And, as with all new things, it’s worth the wait! You’ll notice that most of the cakes don’t have names yet, and the names will be chosen from the suggestions collated over at Not Quite Nigella.

There are also some luscious new macaron flavours, with the salted popcorn getting a thumbs up from me. I’m sure there will be heaps of new foodblogger posts once everyone gets their hands on the new creations, so I’ll just leave you with a couple of photos from today’s foray.

For the record, I got the macadamia layer cake known as ‘V’, and a couple of macarons, including salted popcorn, blackcurrant and Tasmanian honey and walnut.

New cakes with temporary names (except for the 3rd one - 'Just 2 Fingers Tiger!')

Some more new cakes (I got the 'V') and new macaron flavours - yum!

Genevieve and Charles ponder the meaning of life, cake, macarons, and the new pricing structure

Hooray for Charlie with a new delivery of cakes!

What's in the basket (l to r): Sigue Sigue Sputnik (that's what it looks like, at least);
millefeuille and a massive passionfruit tart; banana and orange cakes

Better get in quick, it's popular!
