The Flowerbomb-inspired cake My Sweet Flowerbomb is a millefeuille which emphasizes floral tonalities while playing on textures, even a surprising one in an attempt to mimic the experience of an explosion in the mouth.
The pastry features tasty notes of "praline, rose, lime with bergamot, jasmine sprinkled with some vanilla notes. The green tea-flavoured sponge base contrasts deliciously with the crunchy chips of praline biscuit. Take a bite and there's a surprise! The cake fizzes in your mouth as a result of a magic sugar recipe, an explosion of addictive sensations.
We especially love the Viktor & Rolf seal on top of the cake. For more pics of the pretty Flowerbomb, check out the hotel's Facebook photo album. The pastry will be available in the hotel's Le Dali restaurant until June 30, 2010 for 17 Euros.
Oh, do you hear that? That's the sound of us booking our trip to Paris. But we'll have to stay elsewhere. The Le Meurice room rates at $700+ a night are too rich for our
blood sugar budgets.
