  • About

This cake was created by the pastry chef Josef Haslinger of Vienna’s fanciest fancy food store, Julius Meinl am Graben (also now in Chicago), in honor of the beginning of the twenty-first century. It is a rich chocolate nut cake with a chocolate glaze, decorated with gold leaf. This is my version of the cake, not the official recipe from Meinl. See Sources for purchasing gold leaf.
