On the 1st of March 2016, Adel Cersaque took on to offer to the public a ridiculously huge biscuit to devour as a first glimpse of his soon to be world famous Giant’s Yard. Announcing its upcoming opening, the enormous biscuit became the eatable game board of a one-time promotion event centered around one straightfoward question: What’s in the cake?
Leaded by a pushy, fake-smiling hostess, the public was encouraged to taste each of the 170 chocolat bar sized biscuits in order to answer to the enigma; as the printed advertisement table would progressively deliver the answer.
Each piece being individually fashioned with a unique combination of flours and spices (being the most essential components of the oldest pastry product of the western world: the biscuit) which, put together, would deliver the taste of a Gingerbread biscuit. The event was meant to result in an amusing confusion; which would be answered by the hostess’s conclusion speech:
“Don’t you worry, your tastebuds are fine! You’ve just cooked up one Giant gingerbread Giant altogether. Don’t you hesitate to make-out for the spices to mingle!”
And people did make out… though mostly thanks to the liquor.
