Blogging A-Z - April Challenge - J is for .....Junee

Whilst I was in Australia, I had a birthday. Not one of the special ones that end in zero! As my cousin had a birthday two days after mine we had a small get together with about a sixth of the family. Our venue was the Junee Licorice Factory restaurant

The cake was a chocolate cake, filled with delicious ediables inside including some of the licorice that is made by the factory.

It is great that these old buildings find a new lease of life. Inside there are obviously some of the delicious creations that you can purchase. There is various historical displays about how they make licorice and where it comes from. There is also a gift shop with some rather lovely items. My spending was severely controlled by the airline baggage restrictions!

Taking part in the A-Z April Challenge


  1. What a great place to have a birthday celebration Julie! I stopped in at the factory at Junee in September 2011 with my parents and got some yummy licorice and chocolate :) I hope to go again someday!

  2. It looks like the cake is like a little pinata. I hate to think you can't eat the cake after you bring that baseball bat down on it!

  3. Ok, now I'm intrigued....a cake with liquorice in the middle?


    1. Vikki, the cake was chocolate, not chocolate sponge, but chocolate like you would eat - a bar of choc. Inside it was filled with chocolate nuts and licorice and plain licorice and strawberries covered in chocolate. It was delicious!

  4. That sounds completely deadly and definitely different. Did you need the nulla nulla to beat the others off ;-)
