Exactly one week ago we splashed out on some cake in St.Kilda. After Peter and I had spent some time in Central Melbourne around Swanston Street, we met up with Martin and Lauren again. The four of us boarded a tram to St.Kilda.

This cake was placed in one of the beautiful boxes for us to take home.

The cake that we took home in the box turned out to be excellent too.

The following day, Friday, 19th April, Lauren did go back to Newcastle. Her flight left very, very early in the morning!

    1. The Kooglhoupf, Robert, that we took home, was quite moist with a lot of very dark rich chocolate mixed in it. Really marvellous! The dark piece of cake in the middle of the table we shared. It was wonderfully moist very rich poppy seed cake. And I forgot to mention we also took some plum cake home. So throughout Thursday and Friday we had our fill of very special cake!

  1. The cakes I will leave for you Auntyuta, afraid I dont possess a sweet tooth.
    The trams are beautiful in Melbourne, must be over 30 years since I rode one of them.
    Cheers

    1. It’s really more Peter who’s got a sweet tooth, Ian. But these Monarch cakes were really special and I quite enjoyed some of the cake. We love the Melbourne trams!
      Cheers, Uta.
