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.

Offering the best of both worlds, the Easter Snack pack returns... including a bake at home Hot Cross Bun Sticky Snail and 1L Triple Choc Gelato Hot Tub.  Spiced sticky dough is laced with choc chips and vanilla custard, topped with a cinnamon malt caramel (no raisins in sight).

Before eating the snail, you'll have to bake it at home... before topping with a scoop of your Triple Choc Hot Tub! Each layer is made exclusively with Messina house-made chocolate, using Ecuadorian cocoa. Layers of milk chocolate gelato and toasted white chocolate mousse are topped with an Ecuadorian dark chocolate crack.

PRICE: $65

SNAIL ALLERGENS: dairy, eggs, gluten, nuts, alcohol

HOT TUB ALLERGENS: dairy, egg, nuts, gelatine

SERVES: up to 6


Defrost before baking. Refrigerate for up to 3 days until ready to bake.

Pre-heat oven to 160C fan-forced or 180C conventional. Bake for 20-25 mins, remove from oven, slice and serve with the Triple Choc Hot Tub.
We recommend baking right away, but if you've got enough willpower to not eat straight away, please keep frozen from store pick up. The snail will keep in the freezer for a month. Once cooked, store in the fridge and eat within 3 days.

Refunds on Pre-Ordered Products
Unfortunately no refunds or cancellations can be made, due to it being a limited edition product.

Please make sure you collect your order during the 'pick up dates'. Due to limited amount of storage space in stores, we are unable to keep products for too long. If you have extenuating circumstances due to COVID and can't collect, please email us at
