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.

Sold out!

We know our R&D has been pretty loose of late, which has resulted in some insanely good deserts. The chefs have been working round the clock to come up with domestically foolproof bake-at-home desserts, meal kits and hot tubs to treat everyone in iso or *not iso* (sorry melbs).

But the Lamington Sticky Snail is almostttt here and we think it's our best yet. Inspired by our original Snail, but better, the Lamington Snail is the lovechild of two iconic patisserie hauls. Super sticky brioche is stuffed with vanilla custard, choc chips, raspberry jam and chocolate caramel, sprinkled with desiccated coconut.

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

Please make sure you collect your order during the 'pick up dates'. If you don't pick it up, the store manager will try and contact you a maximum of 3x times, and then we may regift it (or eat it) if we still don't hear from you. Due to limited amount of storage space in stores, we are unable to keep products for too long.

App Points
If you already have the Messina app, you don't have to do anything. We'll email your points a few days after making your purchase.

Don't have our app? Need a bit of convincing? Every time you make a purchase in store with our mobile app or buy select products through our website, you'll receive 10 Messina App points per dollar you spend. You're the boss of your points. They add up to free gelato and other cool things which you can redeem as and when you please. Download the Messina app before 9am Thursday 20th August to claim your points.
