There comes a time when the pastry kitchen needs to show off a little at afternoon tea and the Gâteau Opéra is that moment.

There are other show-stopping cakes that are equally impressive but there’s something about the Opéra that keeps pastry chefs coming back to it and recreating it again and again.

It’s the mixture of sponges and coffee flavours that make this one of the most recognisable cakes in the afternoon tea repertoire.
