This little delicacy is a South Aussie special – called a frog cake, it’s made by a local bakery (Balfours) and has reached iconic status here. If you come here, you must taste one – sponge cake and apricot jam inside, a creamy head and sweet icing all over – he’s just inviting you to eat him!

Canon 40D, Canon 60mm macro, ring light attached.

I live in the beautiful Adelaide Hills of South Australia which are a constant inspiration to me in my photography. As an observer of nature and the world around around me, I find many subjects here which I try to portray in an artistic and interesting way. Please contact me if there are any of my images you wish to purchase or otherwise use.

    Must say I have never had one, though I do know they are a South Australian icon.
