I bookmarked this image long ago as one of my favorite photos in the Serious Eats photo group on Flickr
. Going through that collection today, my eye stopped on this arresting image. You can almost taste the missing bite that the photographer, Aapplemint, took from the cakelet at the bottom of the pyramid here. (In fact, this picture sent me scurrying off to the Serious Eats doughnut repository for a little something sweet.)
Those cakelets, by the way are lamingtons, which I'd never heard of before Googling them. These traditional Australian treats are small squares of butter cake covered with chocolate icing and dried coconut. If you'd like to make them, Aapplemint's got a recipe on her blog.
