3-texture Magic Chocolate Cake. The chocolate cake that starts it all.

Guanaja 70% created by Valrhona in 1986 is the world’s first chocolate to reach 70% cocoa content, giving 'Dark Chocolate' its name and definition. Coincidentally, after 30 years, it forms the backbone of 404 Bakery’s first chocolate cake - Gâteau au Chocolat. Strictly handmade in limited batches to ensure an unmistakable artisanal touch in every bite, this gluten-free and cream-free cake boasts a divine chocolatey flavor that is beyond compare.

Our Gâteau au Chocolat achieves a silky texture through a precise mixing technique and careful monitoring of ingredient temperature. The cake's three distinctive textures at three different temperatures elevate the experience to a whole new level. Chilled, it resembles velvety chocolate truffles. At room temperature, the flavor intensifies, and the texture resembles foie gras with contrasting crumbly edges. Warmed in an oven or microwave, it transforms into a light and airy, almost soufflé-like texture with deep roasted chocolatey flavors that reminds one of a bottle of full-bodied red wine.

This cake is 100% gluten-free. For nationwide delivery, please visit page "(Nationwide Delivery) Gâteau au Chocolat" instead. New cake packaging for orders placed on or after 3 Dec. 

Special features

On top of the magical textures at varying temperatures, Gâteau au Chocolat is adorned with edible gold dust from a family-run business from Essex, making it the perfect gift for any chocolate lover, as well as a guaranteed crowd-pleaser at parties or company events where guests can experiment with different temperatures and capture photos of them.

In addition, the cake's depth of flavour allows for unique pairings with sea salt, smoked paprika, ice cream, tea & coffee, whisky, dessert wines, and more. Some customers even buy it just for themselves to indulge in their private pairing session at any time of day.
