Interesting facts about the Original Bled cream cake

The original Bled cream slice is recognised as a dish with a designation of origin. Since the very first cream cake in 1953, almost 16 million Original Bled cream cakes have been made to this day, using over 136 tons of flour, 8,7 million eggs and 1,600,000 litres of milk. If the 16 million cream cakes were stacked in a row, they would reach 1,085 km or all the way from Bled to Pompei. If we were to stack them on top of one another around Lake Bled, they would make a wall 8,25 m high.

Cream cake made to the original recipe from 1953

A visit to Bled just wouldn’t be right if you didn’t treat yourself to the Original Bled cream cake. We make them in the Hotel Park pastry kitchen, but you can try it in all the Sava Hoteli Bled bars, cafes, restaurants and hotels. We stick closely to the original 1953 recipe. We use ingredients: eggs, flour, cream, sugar and butter. The Original Bled cream cake contains no colourants, preservatives or other additives, which is why we make them fresh every day. Cream cakes are made several times a day, while on weekends (the busiest time for Bled in terms of visitor numbers), we prepare them every hour so that they are truly fresh at all times. Most original Bled cream cakes are sold at their home, the Park Café on the Bled promenade!

Making cream cakes under the sign of 7

Only the finest fresh and original ingredients are used to make the Original Bled cream cakes: fresh eggs, flour, cream, milk, sugar and butter. It is particularly important to use fresh eggs, as they make the cream delicious and light – the kind that melts in your mouth. Cut into slices measuring 7 x 7 cm, original Bled cream cakes are freshly made every day. No industrial preparations are used. Our pastry chefs make them entirely by hand – a true rarity in the modern world. The cakes are made several times a day; on weekends when Bled welcomes the largest number of visitors, they are made as often as every hour.
