  • Our favourite desserts are those with chocolate, pavlova or berries; this Tim Tam cake looks spectacular.


  • OMG that looks so divine, a beautiful cake for a special occasion! YUM


  • Yes it is an un healthy cake but there was a warning before reading what was in the cake. So as my mother taught me if you can not say something nice then do not say anything thing at all. I would make this as a special cake to be shared with lots of people.


  • OMG! ????..Well there goes my diet.. haha ..I’m going to try this..might add some shredded coconut on top! Mmm


  • Great creativity – but too sweet for me.


  • Love, looks very good to eat. I like the creativeness of the cake – love to try this! thanks for sharing.


  • The beauty of this is that you share the calories with everyone at your Australia Day party. Good times all round.


  • This is torture. It’s only breakfast time and all I can think of is trying this out.


  • Well that just looks seriously yummy!


  • Such unhealthy cake, I’m afraid I would never make or eat it !


  • I was looking for the Tim Tams in the ingredients before realising that the cake is shaped like a Tim Tam! To make the cake even more decadent, you could crush Tim Tams and either sprinkle them on top of make a crushed Tim Tam base.


  • Thanks for a Tim Tam cake for any day of the year. This Tim Tam cake looks moist and rich and I will have to make this cake and test it out on the family and get feedback on the taste.

    • I am going to make this Tim Tam cake for a birthday celebration too.
