Hello my dear readers,

I hope you are doing well and you are ready for this dramatic cake called

Opera Cake.

This cake was born in Paris by the legendary pastry chef Cyriaque Gavillon.

He was a pastry artist who created the most amazing cakes and sugar decorations.

When inventing the Opera cake he wanted to create cake for which only one bite would give a taste of the whole cake.

He worked on layers and tastes and came up with what we know today as the OPERA CAKE.

Since we know that there is always a woman behind every man’s success we are not surprised that his wife was the one

who named the cake. She told him it reminded her of the Paris Opera House, Palais Garnier.

And that’s how the Opera cake was born.

So, dear my readers are you ready to sing an Opera? Pardon me, I mean are you ready to make the Opera Cake.
