The Belgian royal chocolate brand, WITTAMER, has released its Christmas cake for 2021, and has started taking reservations from mid-October 2021.
Chocolate Cake & Chocolat Box in One
The “Premiere Noel” Christmas cake, available only with a reservation, is a special combination of a chocolate cake filled with the fresh aroma of cacao and a chocolate box filled with the chocolatier’s signature chocolates.
The base of the chocolate cake is a rich gateau chocolate using chocolate made from cacao beans harvested within 60 days to bring out the fresh aroma of cacao. The cake is layered with Earl Grey-scented ganache, rum raisins, and milk chocolate cream to create a mellow taste.
The chocolate box, which can be eaten with both the ribbon and the box, contains a luxurious assortment of Vitamelle’s representative chocolates, colorful Christmas-only chocolates, and chocolates that won first prize in a contest. You can enjoy a variety of flavors such as caramel, strawberry milk, and pistachio.
A cake decorated with a chocolate tree and a bright red cake with raspberry and cocoa.
In addition, Vitamere will be offering a variety of Christmas cakes, including the 2021 specialty, Sappan de Noel Pistache, decorated with a chocolate tree. The rich chocolate mousse wrapped in pistachio crème brûlée and sweet and sour raspberry gelée makes for a flavorful cake.
The bright red “Noel Rouge” is a Christmas cake with the aroma of cocoa and the gorgeous acidity of raspberries. The chocolate mousse with raspberries is filled with white chocolate cream and raspberry gelée.
In addition, “Fraise de Vitamere,” a shortcake with a limited edition Christmas design, “Chocolat Samba,” Vitamere’s signature chocolate cake, and “Emme,” a sweet and sour berry mousse with white chocolate mousse and berry confiture will also be available.
