Pidapipo x Hunted + Gathered Giveaway
These two Melbourne dessert specialists have created a lush Cherry Bomb cake for Christmas — and you can sample it for free.
There's no time quite like the festive season for sparking creative, sweet-toothed collaborations, and the latest is sure to have both cake lovers and gelato fans in a tizz. Pidapipo Gelateria has joined forces with organic chocolatiers Hunted + Gathered to dream up a new limited-edition yuletide treat: the Christmas Cherry Bomb Cake. And if you're speedy, you can try it for free.
The duo's seasonal creation features a cake base crafted from 70 percent Dominican Republic dark chocolate, topped with layers of two new Pidapipo flavours: a candied fruit and nut panforte gelato and a tangy cherry sorbetto. It's finished with Italian meringue and white chocolate, and a riot of pine sprigs, glacé cherries and silver leaf. It's hefty enough to serve six to eight people.
The Cherry Bomb is set to make its debut at Pidapipo's Carlton gelateria on Monday, December 2 with a giveaway. The first ten punters through the door at 5pm will get their own free full-size cake to take home and devour.
But even if you're not that punctual, you can score a free scoop of either the cherry sorbetto or the panforte gelato between 5 and 7pm. Each scoop will be topped with a sprinkling of Hunted + Gathered white chocolate chips, and there'll also be free chocolate samples up for grabs.
And if you want to get a cake for your Christmas Day dessert, the Cherry Bomb will be available at all three Pidapipo stores (Carlton, CBD and Windsor) and Hunted + Gathered's Cremorne store from Tuesday, December 3, until Wednesday, January 1, 2020.
