This year, for Epiphany 2022, famous pâtissier-baker Benoit Castel plays the originality card again with his beautiful traditional Kings' Brioche with candied fruits and the excellent frangipane cake we cannot get tired of.

And what if for Epiphany 2022 you go and try a new gustatory adventure? If you are willing to, then discover the Epiphany Cake by Benoit Castel!

This year, the pâtissier-baker has come up again with an inverted Epiphany cake! To do so, Benoit Castel used an uncommon puff pastry method consisting in wrapping the dough in DPO butter instead of wrapping the butter in dough. The flakiness is therefore more extra!

And the result is to be discovered with this delicious Epiphany cake 2022 unveiling some lighter, crispier and more caramelized flake. As for the frangipane, it has a nice taste of almond cream with hints of Madagascan vanilla.

But that is not all! Benoit Castel also thinks about different flavor fans, and unveils for Epiphany 2022 a hearty, moist and scrumptious Kings’ Brioche. Originating from South of France, the Kings’ brioche is based on orange blossom and candied fruits filled with sugar, and covered in sugar beads and candied fruits.

So, which treat will you get?
