King's Cake

To celebrate the Epiphany with a traditional French delicacy, Maxence Barbot, Pastry Chef at Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, has created the unique Vanilla King’s cake. To mark the occasion, the hotel partnered with the prestigious watch and jewellery retailer Bucherer to gift its lucky guests an exceptional surprise. The first 100 cakes sold will include a special key that unlocks exclusive gifts and experiences, such as a complimentary gemmology or watchmaking workshop with the experienced atelier. One special cake will include a special gold necklace from the Bucherer Fine Jewellery's 'B Dimension' collection and will unlock a luxurious complimentary stay at Shangri-La Hotel, Paris.

Created for discerning palates to enjoy on the celebration, gourmets will appreciate the crisp puff pastry, which contains an almond and vanilla frangipane. The delicious cake is garnished with caramelised pastry drawing lines that are reminiscent of the long curves of a vanilla pod.

This gourmet creation features a double layer of puff pastry. The first layer is classic and flavourful with frangipane cream filling, while a second layer covers the cake with a crisp texture, like thin sticks of caramelised 'Arlettes' puff pastry. These two layers beautifully complement the sweetness of the warm, generous frangipane filling, making this authentic King’s cake an irresistible treat.

To add more sparkle to the occasion, the first 100 cakes will contain special lucky charms, designed by Bucherer, in the form of small keys. Ninety-nine keys will unlock either an invitation to take part in a gemmology or watchmaking workshop, a voucher worth €600 to spend on the brand Carl F. Bucherer, or a tailor-made leather watch strap, among many other surprises. One lucky recipient will receive a gold key and will win an exquisite gold necklace in Bucherer Fine Jewellery's 'B Dimension' collection. The winner of the gold key will also receive a luxurious stay with breakfast at Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, where they can enjoy the stunning view of the Eiffel Tower in a palatial setting.

This King’s cake will offer guests a pleasant, gourmet experience to create precious moments with family and friends.

Vanilla King’s Cake at Shangri-La Hotel, Paris x Bucherer is designed for six people. The cake is available for EUR68. The cake is available for sale until Thursday 14th January included and to take away from Saturday 2nd January to Sunday 17th January included from 10am to 8pm.
