Pour les 50 ans de la section de Samaritains de Vernier, Serena a réalisé une pièce montée de parade à 5 étages magnifique! Elle s'est approprié le thème et a fait un design qui a beaucoup plu lors de la journée mondiale des premiers secours à Balexert et lors des portes ouvertes de la section. Et elle a réalisé en plus deux beaux gâteaux au chocolat (100 portions au total) absolument délicieux pour les portes ouvertes. Tous les invités se sont régalés!

To celebrate the Geneva watches fair (the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie), we have created an Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Frosted Gold watch cake with moving hands.
The Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak for women is an iconic watch, celebrating this year its 40th anniversary with this frosted gold edition.
Interestingly, the shimmery effect of this watch is created using an ancient Florentine hammering technique, as we can read on Audemars Piguet’s website: “The defining feature of this watch is its shimmer, which comes from a process rooted in ancient gold hammering, known as the Florentine technique. Beating the gold with a diamond-tipped tool creates tiny indentations on the surface, giving a sparkle effect similar to that of precious stones, like diamond dust.”
Since we don’t have a diamond-tipped tool (yet!), we have replaced it with a metal tool and created hundreds of tiny holes on the surface of our fondant case. We have used a sharp blade to imitate the brushed effect on the case’s sides.
We have then patiently cut hundreds of small fondant squares to create the dial, reproducing the Royal Oak’s Grande Tapisserie decoration, “a weaving pattern that forms the square and lozenge motif that captures the light and accentuates the timepiece’s geometric relief,” as explained by HODINKEE. (Fascinatingly, the Tapisserie decoration of the real dials is made using below pantograph, a mechanical system allowing for copying and tracing created in 1603.)
After debossing the Audemars Piguet logo on the crown using a cardboard-made logo, we sprayed the case, the crown and a fondant-covered chocolate cake with edible gold glitter.
Finally, we placed in the middle of the cake a wall watch mechanism and hid it under the fondant dial. We finished the cake by fitting the metallic hands (the only non-edible part of our watch), previously cut to resemble the hands of the Royal Oak.
After 3 days of intense work, we had a working Audemars Piguet watch cake with moving hands.
Selling price starts at 1,000CHF ($1,062) and varies depending on the size, and flavors of the cake.
Here are some pictures of this watch cake.
This cake is perfect for a watch-loving person and can be adapted to a different design for a corporate event. Discover our latest corporate event’s cakes here.
