Chances are if you were once a kid (you were) copping an ice cream cake was the pinnacle of birthday success. If you were ever lucky enough to nab one of those messy, creamy treats, time to pay attention.
Pidapipo's gelato cakes have been going gangbusters ever since they launched a few years ago, and the chain's founder Lisa Valmorbida has picked out some of the gelateria's most popular flavours to turn into cake form for the newest range.
The new range features a Passionfruit Layer Cake, Lamington Cake, Bacio Bombe Alaska and Peanut Butter Layer Cake, which combine beaut flavours with intricate decorations. Just let us talk you through the passionfruit situation: layers of vanilla cake, passionfruit sorbet and fior de latte covered in meringue. Sounds like it'll make even the most nostalgic-for-a-Maccas-cake kid weep.
The new range of cakes are also slightly bigger in size than their previous incarnations, most feeding around fifteen people (or one hungry, decadent you). Previously only available to order at the Windsor store, the new cakes will be able at all Pidapipo locations – Carlton and CBD as well as Windsor — for maximum ease of birthday joy.
Speaking of maximum ease, perhaps the best news from all this is that you can order both the Lamington and the Peanut Butter cakes on UberEats as well.
