Grand Deli, on the first floor of Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas in Samseong-dong, is now offering its Cherry Blossom Cake.
The pink and white Cherry Blossom Cake is decorated with dozens of elegant cherry blossom petals made from butter cream handcrafted by the hotel’s pastry chef, Eric Kalaboke.
The cake sheet contains beta carotene-packed, highly antioxidizing carrots as the main ingredient. Beta carotene is converted into vitamin A once it enters the body, and it’s absorbed better when taken with fat such as butter.
The Cherry Blossom Cake is available for a limited time and costs 65,000 won.
