History & Story
Created by the great Cyriaque Gavillon in 1955, the revolutionary Opéra Cake was avant-garde in its precise, geometric presentation of eight delicately thin layers. With the intensity of 70% dark chocolate ganache, coffee cream, espresso-soaked joconde biscuit base and gold-foiled chocolate thins, the cake is an explosive convergence of flavours and a regal sight. When opera lover Andrée Gavillon first tasted the cake, the wife of Cyriaque immediately compared it to the stage of the Opéra Garnier in Paris. Thus, the Opéra Cake was born.
