Beverly Hills’ 100th birthday is a major event, and, as such, should have a cake worthy of such an anniversary.
The Luxe Rodeo Drive Hotel has taken on the task of creating the celebratory confection, and has partnered with Guittard Chocolate Company’s corporate executive pastry chef, Donald Wressell, to present the City of Beverly Hills with a larger-than-life birthday cake on April 27.
The Luxe Hotels/Guittard cake, will stand at a staggering 10-feet high, 15-feet wide, 20-feet long,
and will weigh approximately 4,000 pounds. It will depict the iconic Beverly Hills City Hall tower and the world-renowned Rodeo Drive.
Wressell plans to bake a kosher chocolate cake, which is anticipated to serve approximately 15,000 slices.
The cake will serve as the centerpiece of the City of Beverly Hills’ Centennial Block Party on Rodeo
Drive, which will take place from 3:30 to 7:30 and will also include carnival games and rides, entertainment and a grand finale to conclude the evening.
