It is Adriano Zumbo Patissier’s first birthday. I remember the first day I visited the shop so clearly…Actually, when I asked the girl behind the counter how long they had been open, she said three weeks, to which I replied ‘Ooh, I didn’t even notice!’. How things have changed.
Because the cakes were so special, I started taking photos straight away. The date on my first photo, of the ‘Marie’ (below left) is 29th April 2007. So it’s almost a year since I stopped by.
The one that clinched it for me, though, is the ‘Merry-go-round’ (below middle). The square of Turkish delight on top of the macaron is, well, so delightful!
I didn’t make note of the name of the cake on the right but I think it is a version of the Odeon cheesecake.
