Zumbo Favourites stage a Comeback

Quick, make your way to Adriano Zumbo Patissier! For some of his favourite gateaux have made a return visit for '2 Weeks only!!!'

The sign in the shop window (above) says it all. So the return cakes are available till 9th October, with 'Classics with a Twist' on from 10th October. And, wait for it, '60 flavours of macaron' for one amazing day only, on 6th November. Got to be there for that one!

It’s my birthday this weekend, and as with most things associated with my date of birth, I had to do it myself – find a gift, book a restaurant for dinner, get a cake…(it’s not really that bad).
I got myself two cakes, Houdini and
da Bomb. I've wished long and hard for Houdini to reappear, and it did!

Other cakes that have returned include
Tanzanie, Mogador and Miss Marple.

These lovelies are not just your favourites, Adriano, but ours, too! Thank you!

    It’s your birthday time again;
    It’s true; there’s no denying,
    Another year has come and gone;
    You know that I’m not lying.

    So for you, the birthday person,
    Here’s what I want to say:
    I hope this birthday’s the best one yet,
    In every delightful way.

    So happy birthday to you.
    Have lots of birthday fun!
    May your birthday wishes all come true,
    Even if you have a ton.

  19. Happy Birthday to you indeed! How serendipitous that Zumbo's cake fest is happening!

  21. Hi Everyone,
    Thanks for the birthday wishes. I had a wonderful day of waiting for the bus to the Papercrafts show, visiting the Papercrafts show, eating 'da Bomb', eating at Ocean Room and taking lots of photos.
    I love birthdays, and the only thing stopping me from having more is the *age* thing :)
    And isn't October great, with Sydney Food Festival as well - bring on more fab food (and papercrafts)!
