Sweet pleasures Festival
Last updated Thursday, 15 February 2018
"Sweet pleasures", 9 days of pure hedonism with sweets by Vincek, Cukeraj, Amelie, Torte i to, Aida, Lokum, Le cakes, Mansaku, Godisa.... and special guest - Cakebox from Korcula. In addition to sweets, you will also be able to taste some quality wines because this year the confectioners are joined by renown winemakers.
If you're up for a „Marshmallow challenge“, Children's culinary workshop, various cooking shows or would like to let some steam out on the 2m long piñata, visit Zrinjevac and indulge your taste buds!
We especially look forward to Friday, April the 10th to taste the largest cake in Croatia, almost 1500 pounds heavy! A giant dessert available to all for a symbolic donation which will be used to purchase equipment for the catering school of Zagreb.
