The mercury rose to 44.5 degrees Celcius in Sydney today. But thankfully, I managed to get hold of Adriano Zumbo's limited edition Chocolate Mousse Cake to cheer me up.
The cake's recipe calls for 28 types of ingredients for 11 elements - including cinnamon pate sable, apple filling, salted caramel, sabayon mousse, chocolate blackberry ganache, biscuit decor jaconde, cigarette decor paste and chocolate spray. In the words of Poh from Masterchef, "Who makes desserts like that?" Well, I'm glad that Zumbo does.
And of course it's a crime to leave Zumbo without some macarons. Thanks for the heads up, Bella of Ooh Look.
