Thursday night shopping last week was met with a most pleasant surprise - the much sought after cake genius, Adriano Zumbo was at MidCity doing a demonstration of sugar flowers. I think I pinched myself a couple of times to convince myself that I wasn't dreaming...yes, it was Adriano Zumbo in the flesh standing just a metre away from me and hey, I think he just looked at me!
And to prove that I was there, here's a handful of photos from the night. I love that macaron tower!
Ok, here he is and he's looking my way :)
Adriano's rather cheeky smile whilst he's busy at work.
They were handing out a selection of macarons and cakes on the night. I had my eye on this one and strategically placed myself near where they were coming out of the kitchen and grabbed one straight away when they came out.
Cake innards! Yum!
I was actually in the city doing some shopping (not stalking him) so grabbed another photo from the other side as I was walking back to go down the escalators.
My friend M happily joined me in my craziness as I took the above snaps. The boy wasn't as pleased; he stood at the back, tapping his feet and the initial amusement was quickly replaced with a snarl on the face. Apparently I lurked around the demonstration for too long, taking too many photos and giggled a bit too much at the mention of Zumbo. It's been a good while since I've blogged about Zumbo here...I hadn't forgotten about him, I think I've just found myself falling in love again! Haha...just kidding. I do think he's a cake genius though and would absolutely love to learn how to make his cakes and macarons!
