How Can I Get This Glorious Cake?

This cake can be reserved for collection from all stores apart from Surry Hills and The Star – for collection from these stores, you can visit us in store. We have a limited number of cakes available in every store each day. You can drop in and purchase a cake (subject to stock) anytime we’re open or call ahead to make sure we have the one you want. If you’re planning for an event, we recommend you call ahead or buy online as we can’t guarantee the one you want will be there! Give us a call. We’re really nice…

Ordering Ahead

Online cake orders require a 2-day turnaround.
If you don’t have 2 days, visit any store and buy from the selection they have available, or give them a call 24 hours before to reserve one. If it’s for a special occasion, we highly recommend ordering ahead.

Taking Your Cake Home

Our recommended safe travel time for cakes is 30 mins from store to freezer. If it’s a hot day, use your noggin… and make the trip snappy! If you want to extend your travel time, bring a cooler bag or esky.


To enhance the flavours and assist in cutting, the cake should be removed from the freezer and placed in the fridge 20 mins before serving. Always use a hot, sharp knife and ensure you wipe off any excess water to prevent depositing ice crystals on the cake.


We also sell candles which you can order online or pick up in store. All stores offer HAPPY BIRTHDAY plaques. Orders made in advance for collection from Rosebery or Fitzroy also have the option to add a name to the plaque.


Christmas has not been cancelled.. in fact it's hurtling at us faster than we’d like! 2020’s been a bumpy ride for everyone, so we thought we’d continue the rough and tumble journey with our ‘Very Rocky Road' trifle.  It's rocky road but not as you know it. This baby got back! With handmade layers of cherry flummery, rocky road crunch, coconut chiboust, choc mud cake and milk choc gelato, topped with caramelised peanuts, glacé cherries and raspberry marshmallows — it's more of a 4WD track than a road.  Expect it to be more decadent and richer than last years trifle, lulling you into an even more euphoric food coma.

This year we've collaborated with Sonoma Bakery on a limited edition Dulce De Leche Sourdough Panettone. The labour of love took Sonoma's executive pastry chef Alejandro Luna and his team many sleepless nights to develop.  Each of the spiced brioche is stuffed with our house made dulce de leche, Messina chocolateand classic Italian dried fruits, nuts and spices — taking over 36 hours to make.   You'll get one of these 750g bad boys in your pack, 1L of Messina brandy custard and a branded cooler bag to take home.
