Lotus Dining Group and Tokyo Lamington have supercharged the sweets game with three limited-edition Lamington flavours in celebration of the Lunar New Year.
The Year of the Tiger is said to signify strength, power and bravery. These elements were front and centre for Lotus Dining Group when partnering with Newtown’s Tokyo Lamington to create 3 unique flavours for Lunar New Year.
The three flavours include;
The Tiger: Charcoal black sponge cake with stripes of yuzu, sesame cream and orange curd centre, dipped in white chocolate, covered with black sesame and orange coated coconut shreds.
The Fortune Cookie: Vanilla sponge with a crushed fortune cookie and white chocolate mousse, dipped in white chocolate, coated with a crushed cookie crumb, topped with a lucky red fortune cookie.
The Lychee: Vanilla sponge cake with lychee pieces, filled with lychee jelly cream, dipped in white chocolate sauce, coated in coconut and pistachio flakes.
“We’ve been fans of Lotus Dining Group for years and enjoyed creating custom flavours in celebration of the Year of the Tiger. We worked with Steve and the team to draw on elements which are synonymous with contemporary Chinese cuisine – Yuzu, black sesame, lychee and of course fortune cookies, which could be incorporated into our Lamingtons.“ said Tokyo Lamington’s Co-Owner, Eddie Stewart.
Lotus Dining Group x Tokyo Lamington Year of the Tiger lamingtons will be available exclusively from 29 January to 13 February or until sold out.
