The 2019 Lunar Limited Edition Chocolate Art Gateau is an ‘East-Meets-West’ cake that is custom designed for the 2019 Chinese New Year celebration. The creative concept behind this cake is based on the Chinese tradition of ‘Red Envelopes’ with its bright red cocoa butter finish and gold coins decor symbolizing ‘Money’. The cake features specific sweet ingredients for their symbolism in Chinese traditions including; Prosperity - Good Fortune - Longevity - Wealth, yet is crafted using modern French based chocolate-making techniques. Specifically, the designer gateau includes the following components;

  • Crispy crêpes peanut milk chocolate praliné base, light chocolate peanut butter & flour ‘Sacher’ type cake, slow-baked Crème Brûlée whipped with blended bean to bar chocolate and chestnut paste, cold set Golden fruits (mix of orange, apricot, mandarin, kumquats) Crème Brûlée cream, and elegantly finished with a red cocoa butter velour spray and hand-painted gold chocolate ‘Coins’ decor. And finally a graphic designed printed card (non-edible) completes this unique celebration cake.

Suggested Pairing: Hot Chocolate, chocolate tea, coffee or a sweet fortified wine such as Portuguese LBV Port, California Black Muscat and/or Australia Liqueur Tokay. Sparkling wine is also a option especially, if on the sweeter side - doux, demi-sec, but a slightly dry (sec) may also work.

Servings: 1050g / 6-9 servings depending on portion size [Suggested serving = 130g / person].

Serving/Storage: This dessert must be stored in the fridge at all times and consumed within 48 hours of purchase. Remove from the fridge about 1 hour before serving to allow cake to reach the perfect serving condition (temperature, texture and aroma)
