Using a rectangular frame, put a sheet of joconde sponge then soak with 150ml of syrup. Pour over 300g of rose butter cream, cover with another layer of joconde sponge and soak with 150ml of syrup. Repeat and pour over 300g of raspberry cream and cover with another joconde sponge soaked in 150ml of syrup. Smooth with rose butter cream on top. Refrigerate for 2 hours, then glaze with the Pink Opera glaze. Cut into 9 x 3 cm bands, decorate with litchi, raspberry cream and gold leaf. Under each Pink Opera slice, put a piece of shortbread cookie.
Maintaining TraditionThe soaring columns and gilded plasterwork have always been a prime feature of The Lobby. A team of highly skilled European craftsmen was brought in to restore the gilded fibrous plaster moldings to their former glory. Combining traditional skills with modern techniques, in a painstakingly detailed operation, they worked from the original drawings and blueprints to faithfully recreate the intricate details and fine craftsmanship that have helped to make The Peninsula Lobby a legend since it first opened its doors in 1928.Read More

In the 1960s, when a five-year renovation of The Peninsula was announced, a Society for the Preservation of The Lobby was formed. Although the original fans, chandeliers and stained glass window were removed, the gargoyles were preserved and have remained until today.Read More
