It would be a sin to leave Bled without tasting the original Bled cream cake!
There are many cream slices, but there is only one original Bled cream cake. The recipe was invented by Ištvan Lukačević; he modified an old Vojvodina recipe for cream slices to make a light and delicate dessert. The original Bled cream cake is recognised as a dish with a protected designation of origin.
Not every cream slice is the original Bled cream cake
Seven, the fairytale number, is the secret behind this legendary dessert. To make the original Bled cream cake, puff pastry is folded seven times and left to rest overnight so it is even lighter when baked in the morning. A light egg custard is boiled for precisely seven minutes before stiffly beaten egg whites are added to it and the mixture is poured over the first layer of delicate puff pastry. The delicious custard cream is topped with a layer of whipped cream and covered with a second layer of puff pastry, which is then dusted with vanilla sugar. The original Bled cream cakes are still made strictly to the recipe perfected by the pastry chef in the 1940s.
Exclusively natural ingredients
Another thing that makes the original Bled cream cake special is the fact that it is made exclusively from natural ingredients and is freshly made every day. Over the years, the Park Restaurant and Cafe has been diligently recording the sales figures for the original Bled cream cake. From 1953 until today, there have been almost 12 million sales! Original Bled cream cakes are sold in all Sava Hotels & Resorts hotels, restaurants and cafes in Bled.
Two new flavours
To mark the 60th anniversary of the Bled Cream Cake, two new flavours have joined the Original Bled Cream Cake: chocolate and berries. You can find them in the Park Restaurant and Café.
