What more can we say….CAKE….CAKE…and more CAKE. We just had to go and try this little gem of a place our selves as we had heard so much about it. And we didn’t try it just once, I went back the next week and did it again. Yes, that’s just how much we like CAKE. Nat is a huge sweet tooth, me, I love a bit of sweet and sour and I was not disappointed.

First time around we had the boys in tow, so we opted for the tasting plates, well we ordered two, as we just had to try everything on the menu. And not only that, it came with a plate of equally delicious sweet sauces and condiments to go with it. I could have eaten a whole bowl of the special lemon curd, but decided to restrain myself and have it on all of my cakes.

The menu at Armageddon is short and sweet, well it is CAKE. With 6 staples to select from plus a few weekly specials there is something to tempt everyone. With a cheesecake, decadent chocolate brownie and an apple pie, there are also cakes for the vegans and gluten free diners as well, along with the weekly pudding, there is something for everyone. The tasting plates offer you a half serve of each cake you select or you can go for a very generous full serve that is perfect to share as well. I think the cheesecake rocks, but the brownie is pretty decadent too, especially when you slather it in house made raspberry sauce and vanilla bean ice cream. Yum!

To find Armageddon look for the electrified blue bike and head down the lane, a little world of sweet delights await you along with speciality tea and coffee. It’s a great place to head out to for a sweet bite to eat, to sit and relax and to catch up with friends for a chat. The inviting atmosphere and friendly staff make you feel very welcome. Quirky vintage decor and fun walls give you plenty to look at or pick up a book and have a laugh. If you can’t stay you can grab your cake to go. Takeaway can be arranged or you can phone through an order. But if you are after something special for an event, Armageddon can organise an amazing cake for you. Just ask.

We really love Armageddon and i’m sure you will too. Who doesn’t love to eat CAKE…

Have your cake and eat it too! – Armageddon Cake

Who: Armageddon Cake

Where: 7 McLarty Place Geelong

When: Thur –Sat 8pm to 11pm

Since Oh! Hello Geelong began blogging way back in January there is one particular place that locals have been constantly recommending to us and now we totally understand why. The place we’re referring to is a wonderful little guilty pleasure, which is open only after dark from Thursday to Saturday and goes by the kooky moniker Armageddon Cake! We really can’t believe it’s taken us until now to experience this little night time indulgence…that’s nine months worth of missed cake eating opportunities!

Warm, cosy, chilled…love! 

Whilst some may say Armageddon Cake is a tad hard to find, there’s a cutesy pastel blue bike complete with twinkly lights at the entrance of McLarty Place to help guide you to the front door. Armageddon’s interior style is a little bit nanna’s living room, a little bit inner city Melbourne share house and a little bit graffitied lane way  – with an overall vibe that is warm, cosy and very chilled. We totally loved poking around the little nooks and pointing out the random mix of kitsch treasures dotted around the place, especially the old radios, layers of stencil art and paste ups on the walls, menus made out of Scrabble letters, vintage birdcages, the massive photo enlarger machine, pretty + nana-ish lamps and little vases of fake flowers adorning the tables. Oh, and we thought the smooth jazzy tunes humming from the vinyl record player was THE perfect touch.

Sweet goodness…

The menu is simple; a list of the most delicious tasting desserts ever and a list of sweet sides to give your dessert that extra umph…the hard part really is choosing what to eat. After lengthy deliberations Oh! Hello Geelong went with the red velvet cake from Sweet Indulgence with a divine chocolate ganache from the talented girls at Gobble and the raspberry brownie (also from Gobble) topped with a chunky raspberry coulis and cream made on the premises. Oh! Hello Geelong also had a few bites of the evil brownie from Cocoa Tree that was drizzled with a heavenly butterscotch sauce…so so YUM! But not only did our sweet treats taste oh so glorious, the presentation was a foodie’s dream. Our mouths are watering as we write this. Oh! And coffee beans supplied by none other than our fav local roasters Cartel.

Dates, catch ups, celebrations…

For Oh! Hello Geelong, we’re pretty confident that we’ve found the perfect place in G-town for all those things we love to do when the sun goes down. Whether it’s a date, a fun catch up with friends, or time to celebrate with those we love, Armageddon Cake’s four walls of casual cosiness and its decadent menu really takes the cake. Thanks to Sarah and the boys and girls at Armageddon Cake for treating us (and our respective sweet tooths) to a lovely Thursday night out, our apologies for not making your acquaintance sooner!

Love Penny + Laura
