As Canada's most acclaimed sweet chefs, we participated and/or represented Canada in many international competitions as well as high profile Food & Wine events the world over along side Michelin 3-stars chefs and world culinary icons. See our Awards page for a synopsis of major achievements & critical acclaim.

As part of the 'World Cakes Series', we release once a year desserts that we crafted for our participation in World events, some were only tasted by a few handful of people, and never made again after being exclusively presented or served at those specific events. Desserts within the ‘World Cakes Series’ are more complex as far as architecture components and/or level of decor, thus they are only offered on a ‘Limited Production’ basis of a few cakes each week. This cake titled ’Cirque du Soleil’ was designed as part of our program as Pastry Team Canada during the World Pastry Team Championship in Las Vegas. And to fit the competition theme (Circus) while reflecting the Canadian origin of the company by incorporating the ‘soleil’ element through ingredients associated with summer and sunshine. Only about two dozen people tasted this dessert when first presented and 10 more people tasted it again with their winning bid of $2,000 on November 10, 2018 as part of a fundraising auction for the Vancouver General Hospital UBC Foundation.

If you are looking for something truly exclusive to end your dinner party - this may very well be it!

NB:  This cake includes all components of the original version, but some of the techniques to make them have been modernized and the chocolate used in the recipe is now our own cocoa bean to bar chocolate.

Architecture: Layers of coconut pate sucrée cookie, crispy crêpes coconut praliné cream, coconut Dacquoise biscuit, mango & strawberry Crème Brûlée cream, Bean to Bar Dominican Republic Öko Caribe dark chocolate mousse sabayon. Elegantly finished with a cocoa butter spray and hand-painted chocolate textured decor.

Suggested Pairing: Hot chocolate tea, coffee or a sweet fortified wine such as Portuguese LBV Port, California Black Muscat and/or Australia Liqueur Tokay.

Servings: 1300g / 8-12 servings depending on portion size [Suggested serving = 130g / person]
