Interesting facts about the original Bled cream cake
Ever since 1953, the cake shop of Hotel Park has been conscientiously recording the numbers of baked puff pastry sheets used to create these enticing cream cakes. More than 14,000,000 of the original Bled cream cakes have been made in over 60 years. For these, they used about 380,000 litres of cream, more than 863,000 litres of milk, over 6,759,130 eggs, more than 112 tonnes of flour, over 300 tonnes of sugar and more than 78 tonnes of vanilla sugar. On beautiful spring and autumn weekends, they bake from 2500 to 3500 pieces, while bakers still reminisce about the record weekends in the late 1970s when up to 6000 cream cakes were made in a single winter weekend. During that period, Lake Bled froze over regularly and the winter wonderland attracted many visitors who skated on the lake and treated themselves to something sweet.
