New Cakes Have Arrived

We've been hard at work over the past three months creating a brand new range of cakes.  From perfecting the layers to give you the perfect fork full, working on how to get the chocolate spray juuuuust right or making a glaze that keeps it shine through fridge, freezer and beyond, it's been a long and a delicious road. But they're finally ready for your eating enjoyment.

There are 8 brand new cakes available from all Messina stores, which can be purchased in-store from our Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra stores or online.

The new range includes five new gelato cakes and three new 'trans' cakes which can be eaten from the fridge, or the freezer and have a longer travel time of up to 3 hours. Great for birthday cakes, celebration cakes, wedding cakes, divorce cakes, office party birthday cakes, or I wanna eat a highly delicious cake days.

Better than your average ice cream cake, we now produce many of our key ingredients and make all our cakes by hand at Messina HQ. We own a dairy farm in Country Victoria which supplies high quality, full cream jersey milk for our gelato, make our own chocolate from scratch using the finest Ecuadorian cocoa, make our own dulce de leche the Argentinian way and we are even growing our own strawberries in Dural, NSW. You’ll see these key ingredients in the new range.

We hope you like them.

PLEASE NOTE: we are currently unable to offer Messina App points on online cake purchases as our systems don't like talking to each other :(. If you would like to receive points, please phone the store you would like to pick the cake up from and tell them you would like to pre-order a cake and pay with the Messina App.
