However, its expertise is not simply limited to cakes, macarons, or chocolates—over centuries, the brand has excelled in testing new recipes, establishing a firm balance between experimentation and innovation.

Dalloyau’s smash cakes, although a relatively new addition to the collection, are curated with special chocolates from France, marshmallows, and gummy bears, amongst other premium ingredients that solidify the experience of indulging in such a sweet treat. From their collection, the Blissful Longevity Peach and Make a Fortune are creative smash cakes that reflect the rich design and flavour legacy of Dalloyau.
