The Cake is Not a Lie: Queen Cake at Hotel Le Meurice
It's cake time! The Hotel Le Meurice in Paris is offering a special cake to bring in 2012 with style. The Galette des Reines, as the cake is called, is a rich and decadent chocolate cake with a special surprise in it. Evoking the spirit of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, one of the slices hides a Tiffany & Co charm in the shape of a golden key. The charm is further incentive to savor ever bite of your dessert, which comes in it an exclusive 14 euros a slice. Only ten cakes will be made over a 20-day period, so it's worth jumping on this one early, since they could easily run out. In our mind, it's certainly worth it after a meal by three-star Michelin Chef Yannick Alleno.
And staying in the hotel itself, opposite the Teuleries garden, is an experience in itself. With a storied history back to 1835, the hotel has been called home by a number of greats, including Salvador Dali, whom the new restaurant, Le Dali, is named for. If you're looking to stay in Paris this January, the Le Meurice is certainly one to look at, with its signature Queen's Cake and chance at a Tiffany Charm.
