Arnott’s have been doing a lot of crazy things lately. Last July they translated four of their most iconic biscuits [that aren’t Shapes] into ice creams, they recently opened a giant Shapes box, and now they’ve fattened some of their biscuits into indulgent mini cakes. And it’s the ones you would have asked for anyway: Mint Slice, Iced VoVo, Caramel Crowns, and Monte Carlo.
A first for the Aussie brand, the new range of cakes have launched exclusively onto Coles shelves throughout Australia in the bakery or packages bread sections (so not where you’d usually find Arnott’s). Not only does this expand the brand’s Supermarket real estate, but it opens up avid snackers to gooey caramel centres to coconut-sprinkled pink fondant tops bodies.
“We are often asked why we don’t bake cakes, so we dug into our flavour archives for inspiration from some of our most loved and iconic brands”, said Arnott’s Brand Manager Ally Doubé. “We mixed these together with our passion for baking to create a range of mini cakes for every occasion”.
Check out the official descriptions of each cake below and be ready to snatch them off the shelves – we have a feeling they’ll be very popular.
Iced VoVo Sponge Cakes
Iced VoVo Sponge Cakes are a vanilla sponge, topped with pale pink fondant, centred with sweet red raspberry filling and delicately sprinkled with desiccated coconut. The sweet vanilla sponge, coupled with the Iced VoVo icing, raspberry jammy-ness and chewy coconut is the ideal addition with your next cuppa tea.
Mint Slice Cakes
Our Mint Slice Mini Cakes are a rich dark chocolate cake, filled with a mint crème (made with the mint oil from Mint Slice!). The Mini Cake is soft to bite into, with a strong mint taste waiting to be discovered in the centre – perfect to share with family and friends!
Caramel Crowns Brownies
Our Caramel Crowns Brownies start with a delicious brownie base, filled with a gooey caramel and are finished with a milk choc layer! The caramel is soft with a sticky consistency – deliciously gooey after 5 seconds in the microwave!
Monte Carlo Cakes
Monte Carlo Cakes are a honey-coloured mini cake, made with golden syrup and coconut, and feature a vibrant raspberry jam swirl throughout the cake. At the heart of the Monte Carlo is a light and fully vanilla crème filling, which will fill the room with a sweet baked vanilla cake aroma, and hints of golden syrup, raspberry, coconut and vanilla.
