Our 'VERY ROCKY ROAD' trifle is now sold out.  JOIN THE WAITLIST BELOW if you would like to hear of cancellations or last minute availability.

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 chocolate and 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.
