Apricot and Cottage Cheese cake

This beautiful cake consists of a tall fluffy sponge, delicate cottage cheese cream and an apricot confit. The chef has developed a special kind of cream for frosting the cake - it is pure white and perfectly stable. The cake is decorated with fresh apricots, berries, mint and a pinch of dried basil. The combination of apricot and cottage cheese creates a very fresh taste, with both a pleasant sweetness and sourness.

Chocolate and Date Cake

This cake has been designed for true chocolate lovers. It is a delicate pastry with tender notes of pistachio and a pronounced date aftertaste. The chocolate sponge cake, silky custard cream and a layer of syrupy dates come together to create a heavenly combination of flavors. Delicious, attractive and seductive, these succulent textures will charm everyone who tries them.

Honey Cake

This sweet treat tastes just like a real classic honey cake, but doesn't contain any gluten, lactose and sugar. Simple yet extremely delicious, this cake consists of two textures: a silky cream that boasts a pleasant sourness and a delicate honey sponge. This cake is topped with a delectable honey crumb that seduces with its appetizing golden brown color.

Avocado, Orange & Coffee cake

The cake is filled with freshness and summer joy thanks to the delicate colours of the avocado, orange and mango jelly. The chef complements the bright fruity flavors with a coffee custard cream and a light, airy sponge.

The surface of the cake is decorated with a wreath of mango cubes, orange and lime wedges, mint and red currants. The coconut petals and black sesame seeds add a touch of expression to the decor.

Almond, Orange and Coconut cake

Creamy, crispy and light, this cake boasts a charming combination of flavors. Everyone who has the pleasure of tasting it will certainly fall in love. Majestic yet elegant, this cake seduces with its succulent textures of orange confit and airy sponge, which are beautifully decorated with almond petals.
