Woolworths is slinging an $8 vegan Biscoff layer cake and Lotus celebrate this victory

When it comes to cult foods, few treats have the range of the humble Biscoff biscuit. Whether you first had one tucked lovingly next to your coffee cup at your local cafe or you were introduced to the flavour via its staggeringly addictive cookie-butter iteration, we can all agree that the product – and all of its various tasty offshoots – slaps hard. The gang at the Woolworths bakery has cottoned on to the fact that you could probably whack a hint of Biscoff on basically anything and it would sell like hotcakes, so they have cooked up an obscenely decadent creation – the Biscoff Vegan Layer Cake.

Dinner in a jiffy – fill your fridge with freshly made gnocchi by the gram from The Pasta Emporium
