Anyone who has a fantastic recipe for a parisienne cake and who is willing to share it is much appreciated! :)

    I see that the recipe says 20 pieces. At Dalloyau, they told my wife 6 pieces, which we did not believe. Maybe something got lost in translation.

      Well, if you have the stamina, theres always Opera Cake, which I first heard about on chowhound. I have since tasted one hand carried for me from the Source!

        Oh my, yayadave, that's some cake!
        I would make a dense cake flavored with kirsch or hazelnut liquer, from France's neighbors, and call it French, but then I'm from Utah.

          The whole thing is 10"x10"x about 1 1/4" high. But it's very Parisienne.

            I see it uses real gold leaf as decoration, too! Very sopisticated and glamourous (coffee is a grown-up flavor)but why Parisienne? Because it started there?

              Well, that's good enough for me. Also, I don't think you'll find it too many other places.

              Oh boy, here we go!
