The symbol of Bled’s cuisine
Cream cakes, known to Bled for decades, are in fact the symbol of Bled. Although you can buy them elsewhere, those from Bled are simply the best. Ištvan Lukačevič, the former manager of the Hotel Park patisserie, tested recipes for many years before he finally succeeded. His cream cakes, which are prepared at this patisserie and sold in the café opposite the hotel, are famous.
What is the cream cake?
What is the secret? In fact, there is no secret - only experience matters, and the cooks from Bled have plenty of experience. Over the last 60 years they have sold as many as 12 million cream cakes. Let us treat you: a golden crispy crust made from butter dough (mixed with butter, not margarine), a delicious vanilla cream of exactly the right consistency (with exactly the right amount of flour - if there is too much the cakes are no good, if too little, they collapse after cutting), topped with whipped cream and a crispy layer of butter dough and finally, last but not least, a good dusting of icing sugar. You see? Your mouth is watering already.
After you have finished your lunch of traditional Bled cuisine, treat yourself with the Bled Cream cake.
