Inspired by the Red Velvet Cup Cake, Tim Tam Red Velvet is an indulgent combination of vibrant red biscuits and a velvety cream cheese centre, coated in a layer of irresistible Tim Tam milk chocolate.

The new range is a decadent variation of the classic chocolate Tim Tam which has been enjoyed by Aussies for 50 years.

Zumbo, who is an Australian and French-trained patissier, is best known for his elaborate, delicious desserts and has developed a cult following thanks to a debut on MasterChef in 2010. As part of Tim Tam’s 50th anniversary celebrations this year, Zumbo created three tantalising flavour variations – Red Velvet will join as the fourth in this limited edition Tim Tam range.

“It’s been an honour to personally develop my own range of Tim Tam biscuits. I grew up on the iconic Aussie bikkie and have always dreamed about putting my own twist on it. Following the success of our first collection, we’re thrilled to launch Tim Tam Red Velvet – designed to taste like one of my favourite cakes,” said Zumbo.

Laura Hindson, Tim Tam Brand Manager, says: “It’s a pleasure working with a dessert master like Adriano Zumbo. Tim Tam Red Velvet is an exciting addition to the popular Tim Tam by Adriano Zumbo collection of unique, fun, indulgent and innovative flavours. We’re looking forward to hearing what our Tim Tam fans think of the new Tim Tam Red Velvet.”

Adriano Zumbo’s Tim Tam Red Velvet will be available exclusively at Woolworths and selected Independent grocery stores from July 21, 2014.
