We are huge fans of Adrian Zumbo’s Just Desserts and Sugar Rush shows and we jumped at the chance to interview him at LA Cookie Con! Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms recently premiered on Blu-ray and Zumbo created a stunning Nutcracker inspired cake to celebrate the home release of the film. He created the gorgeous cake at Vanilla Bake Shop in Pasadena. The cake creation took a whole day to make and you can watch the process in our video!
The multi-layer cake includes a Mother Ginger spicy and sweet cake, a chocolate forest cake inspired by the Fourth Realm, Sugar Plum Fairy candy jam and other hidden sweet treats within. The exterior of the cake features a Nutcracker red glaze adorned with edible figures, including Clara’s chocolate puzzle egg with owl on top, a key and mouse hidden within a bouquet of flowers and candies. Zumbo goes into further detail about the design and flavors of the cake in our interview. He also gave my daughter, an aspiring baker, fantastic advice AND he talked about filming new seasons for his fantastical baking shows! Woohoo!
Check out our interview with Zumbo. He was so cool to us and provided an exciting interview! PLUS, we have a copy of The Nutcracker and the Four Realms staring Mackenzie Foy, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman and Tom Sweet to give away to one lucky Thatsitla.com reader. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is available now on Blu-ray, DVD and digital!
