The legend says that the original recipe was first invented by a Polish baker who came to the shores of St Tropez around 1950 and found fame after delighting the famous movie’s crew “And god created woman”, staring Brigitte Bardot.
It was reported that it’s Bardot herself who named it La tarte Tropezienne.
Through Our company, Le Saint Trop’, we are reviving this old and delicious sweet specialty from St Tropez and renamed it Mini Trope exclusively for Ink by Canvas.
Mini Trope is a brioche cake filled with a specialty cream and originally decorated with sugar – which you can find on our Vanilla mini trope – for this exclusive collaboration we have created a unique range of flavors to match with Ink by Canvas delicious beverages. Our approach and concept are inspired from a small St Tropez bakery who still handmake this cake. we proud ourselves in a more modern approach but always with the St Tropez Tradition in mind. We are bringing the sweet spirit of Saint Tropez to Tokyo!
