Canele ... the taste sensation of France

French treats take the cake

After living in France for three years and mastering the secrets of making canele de Bordeaux cakes, Caroline and Marcus Gniel brought these little treasures to local palates when they settled in the Yarra Valley. They've now relocated to Geelong and set up Gracious & Delicious on Pakington Street. Supplying farmers' markets, events and wholesale and corporate clients with their crisp-crusted and creamy, softcore treats, they plan to open a French-theme shop down the track selling their cakes and duck products, including rillettes, confit and foie gras. ''But we are definitely not opening a cafe!'' says Marcus, who sold his share of his wine-importing business to concentrate on this new project with Caroline.
