Get into the festive mood with dazzling holiday specials
Inspired by the festivities, these dazzling creations will steal the spotlight at any holiday party. Take one look at the signature carousel cake, and the charming design is sure to evoke childlike joy and wonder. Featuring 70% Grand Cru dark chocolate, aromatic Earl Grey milk chocolate and tangy forest berries marmalade jam, expect a jolly medley of flavours, punctuated with crunchy hazelnuts for a delightful texture. Get this culinary masterpiece as a whole 1kg cake ($85) for your Christmas get-together, or grab a slice ($8.50) to leave room for more feasting.
The white forest cake is another classic that is every bit reminiscent of a cosy snowed-in Christmas. Embellished with white snowflakes and sparkly silver balls, it features luscious white chocolate mousse and red wine-marinated cherry compote – all of which is elegantly enveloped in indulgent kirsch cream. Priced at $8.50 a piece, it’s a slice of chocolate-y heaven you’ll wish you had more of.
Indulge in nutty delights
Nuts take centre stage with the irresistible pecan tart and Snickers bar. Perfect for sharing, the 750g tart ($55) puts a delightful twist on the well-loved classic, featuring zesty orange-infused dark chocolate cream and rich maple pecans. For a sophisticated spin on your typical chocolate bar, the Snickers bar ($8.50) artfully layers sweet caramel, crunchy peanut butter and luscious milk chocolate for a decadent treat.
Toast to cakes with a splash of spirit
Say cheers to these spirit-infused bakes! The Woodford whisky cake ($45) is a force to be reckoned with, boasting velvety dark chocolate and almond pound cake infused with salted caramel whisky. Or spread cheer with the Christmas fruit cake, crafted with mixed fruits marinated in a divine blend of rum and whisky. Go on, pick your fancy between the 500g whole cake ($45) or individual slices ($8.50).
