A "gateaux de voyage" is very similar to a typical American style cake or breakfast bread. Think banana bread or carrot cake. It is considered a "travel cake" because they stay fresh for about a week and are pretty easy to package and handle.
It is simple work but they all turned out pretty nice. My favorites were the pound cake, lemon and of course, chocolate! Some other flavors were: spice bread, mango, earl grey tea cake, chocolate marble cake, hazelnut brownies, yogurt cake, and fromage blanc. These also make great gifts! They are simple to take and don't take too much time but you can decorate them in so many impressive ways that your friends will be amazed.
