The 'World Cakes Series' features modernized cakes that were crafted for our participation in World events such as the World Pastry Cup, Masters of Food & Wine, etc. These cakes have a complex aroma design and flavour/texture architecture and are only offered on a ‘Limited Production’ basis.
The flavour profile for this cake was part of our program as Pastry Team Canada during the World Pastry Team Championship in Las Vegas. And to fit the competition theme - Circus - we named our program 'Cirque Du Soleil' to reflect the Canadian origin of the circus company. And also by incorporating ‘soleil’ elements through ingredients associated with tropical sunshine as well as golden colour such as Icewine - Canada's Liquid Gold.
This cake features all of the flavour components of the original program, but some of the techniques have been modernized and includes the following components;
Fresh orange zest Pâte Sucrée cookie crust
Roasted cashews 'Viennois' biscuit infused with a Canadian Icewine cider punch topped with a mixed nuts praliné crunch
