To celebrate the arrival of the BR 01 Cyber Skull Bronze, Julien Dugourd recreates the new dial into a pastry.
Truly a dial that tastes as sweet as it looks, top pastry chef Julien Dugourd turns the BR01 Cyber Skull Bronze into the form of a pastry in his latest collaboration with Bell and Ross. Julien is a close friend of the Maison, as well as the pastry chef chosen by the Prince’s Palace of Monaco and a proud member of the prestigious Club des Chefs des Chefs.
The pastry chef starts off by using Caribbean crisp as the base of the cake and topped with a chocolate biscuit. The layer is carefully coated with caramel and chocolate mousse is used to make the frame of the timepiece.
In the pastry, small chocolate wafers are sprinkled with gold duplicates, taking on the form of the skull emblem of the timepiece. The whole pastry is decorated with cocoa butter, creating an end product made with all-natural ingredients. This meticulous artistry can only be achieved with years of experience and precision — much like the making of a timepiece itself.
