~"What makes this stand so special?
Firstly, the smell is intoxicating. And, the queue of people smelling and observing the baking of these cakes is definitely a sight to see!
But, the real reason for the success of this stand is that it is a real family affair to produce and promote this traditional treat on the shores of Takapuna.
The details – Chimney cakes are Hungarian and originate from Transylvania, where they are referred to as chimney cakes or stove cakes. The pastry is wrapped around a wooden cylinder and baked in the oven to allow the inside to remain soft and the outside to caramelise. Finished off by rolling in caramel, cinnamon, walnuts, coconut, chocolate or sprinkles – this pastry is a definite treat!" - Channel Magazine ~
