We are very honoured to have opened a new café and confectionery at this venerable venue. The café has a view on one of the most important Baroque monuments in Slovenia – the Fountain of the Three Rivers by Francesco Robba.
Zvezda’s pastry and confectionery artists will be preparing an assortment of sweet treats, designed specifically for this very special venue. One of them is a cake dedicated to Luiza Pesjakova, a Slovenian poet, author and translator. She wrote patriotic short stories, poems for children and adults, as well as short prose.
The Luiza Pesjakova Cake is of bright colours, and as charming and elegant as Stroj’s portrait. Like the portrait, the cake is distinguished by its luxury, which is reflected in the richness of ingredients used by Zvezda’s chefs. It consists of sponge cake made of almonds, eggs and butter; hand-cooked custard with Madagascan vanilla; it is rich in forest fruits, made juicy with tropical syrup, and coated in milk chocolate. It is sweet, but not too sweet, luxurious yet fresh.
