To celebrate its 21st birthday in Australia, eBay has partnered up with those dessert mad scientists over at Gelato Messina to bring back one of their most famous creations. Available for a limited time exclusively through eBay Australia, with all proceeds going to Beyond Blue, the treat is a refined take on the brand’s classic Dr Evil’s Magic Mushroom, with a few new twists.
Messina has tweaked the famous recipe for a different flavour profile hiding behind that familiar aesthetic, which is now available in a smaller size. The difference between the classic and this one is that the new Mushroom Cake features a glistening red chocolate mushroom dome adorned with white chocolate buttons, shaped to pay homage to eBay’s colours.
Inside is an insanely tempting combination of vanilla gelato packed with birthday cake, chocolate coated honeycomb and raspberry jam. And for the stem – Messina’s home-made dulce de lecehe and vanilla gelato on a popping candy feuilletine grass base.
The cake, priced at $21 (inclusive of delivery), is now available in metro Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Seeing as the full size Magic Mushroom cake is just under $100, that’s a pretty sweet deal.
The cake is big enough to easily feed 8-10 people, but there is only a limited amount of these available (specifically – 254 for Sydney, 164 for Melbourne, and 70 for Brisbane). Needless to say, get in quick here.
