Opera Cake Masterclass
An opéra cake is a French dessert noted for its delicate, intensely flavored layers. There are many stories about the origins of this cake, known as both Clichy cake and Opéra cake, believed to have started out at the Paris Exposition Culinaire in 1903. Dalloyau in the 50s, sold a very similar dessert in honor of the Paris Opéra created by chef Cyriaque Gavillon. Gaston Lenôtre also claims he invented the opéra cake. Whoever did it, this amazing cake will stick around for many years to come!..
