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.


We've upped our 'bake at home' game with a new, super sticky brioche dessert. Pick up in select stores Friday 3rd – Sunday 5th July.

*If you're running late for your pick up in stores, no need to let us know... we'll hold onto it until you make it in.

Snails are good and all, but have you tried Sticky Snails filled with choc chips, vanilla custard and malted caramel sauce? Well, now you can. Off the back of the Cookie Pie frenzy, the Messina chefs have been hard at work testing the next best 'bake at home' phenomenon. Even though iso is on it's way out, there's no excuse for not living your best home life.

The Sticky Snail serves 4-6 people and only requires 15-20 minutes in the oven, before it's ready to seek your approval. You could buy the lone escargot, but we highly recommend adding on our gelato bargain bundles to complete the package. If you want to really do yourself a doozy, add our new toppings range: choc-hazelnut, dulce de leche or peanut butter.

*Available at all stores except Coolangatta and The Star.


  1. Pre-order your STICKY SNAIL (contains gluten, eggs & dairy) on Monday 29th June (on this page)
  2. Choose your pick up day and time from any of our stores (except The Star or Coolangatta) over 3 days, from 3rd – 5th July
  3. Add your gelato and feel smug you’ve taken advantage of one of our take home tub bundle offers
  4. Come 3rd – 5th July, waltz into your preferred Messina and pick up what's rightfully yours. You've got this!
