Marco Polo Xiamen plans to sell its signature dessert on August 16th, 2018 (today) in memory of Napoléon Bonaparte, the famous French military leader and statesman.



Born on August 15th, 1769, Napoléon Bonaparte would be 249 years old on this August 15th if he were still alive. To commemorate the legendary figure, Marco Polo Xiamen has launched a special promotion of its limited-edition Napoleon anniversary cake, which has a special name — the King Napoleon cake.


The King Napoleon cake anniversary edition will feature a vivid relief painting of Napoléon on top, and will be decorated with two beautiful imported edible gold leaves. The painting's main ingredient is imported chocolate.


Four hundred pieces of the anniversary-edition cake will be available for sale online this Thursday at 12 noon on the hotel's WeChat Mall shop. Each piece will weigh about 500 grams and will sell for RMB 208. The original price of the hotel's Napoleon cake was RMB 228 per piece, and each piece ordinarily weighs around 450 grams.

Cake pickup time and place: From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on August 17th, 18th, and 19th, 2018 at the Bakery Shop (on the first floor of Marco Polo Xiamen)


The Napoleon cake is Marco Polo Xiamen's signature dessert, and is one of the most popular pastries in Xiamen. It's remarkably light and airy, and layered with walnut meringue, which yields a crunchy texture and a mildly sweet flavor.
