Known only by the ultimate L&P superfans, L&P Sour has resurfaced for Summer '21 and created a wave of hype amongst Kiwis looking for the perfect refreshing beverage. Taking the classic Lemon & Paeroa we all know and love, the team at Coca-Cola add in an extra zing of lemon, resulting in a sharp sour flavour.

L&P won't be around for long, so make sure to grab a bottle from your local dairy or supermarket.

If you've lived in Auckland for any amount of time, you'll be familiar with The Caker. Also known as Jordan Rondel, The Caker's decadent creations have taken over Auckland as one of the best things you can receive on a special occasion (or just because), and now they've branched out into the States, with the likes of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Reader's Digest, and Forbes catching on to their amazing cakes.

Now, Jordan is back in Auckland after taking care of business in the United States, and she's finally launched the latest The Caker Master Classes – this time with a Valentine's theme. The classes will take a group of avid bakers through all the steps on how to recreate the perfect Caker cake, taught by Jordan herself, with plenty to eat and take home.

The two next masterclasses sold out in a matter of seconds, but keep an eye out for any upcoming events to learn from The Caker herself. In the meantime, you can whip up a cake at home with The Caker Kits available in four indulgent flavours.
