The Social Media Savvy Chef

One of the key elements of Grolet’s social media strategy is the engaging content he shares. His videos often provide a behind-the-scenes look at his creative process, showcasing the intricate details that go into making each pastry. All the videos are sleek, fast paced and well edited keeping the viewer engaged every step of the way. From sculpting lifelike fruit desserts to crafting delicate tarts or flaky croissants, these videos not only highlight his skills but also build anticipation and excitement among his followers.

In addition to showcasing his creations, Grolet uses social media to announce exclusive events such as the opening of new stores. He also remains close to his audience, by sharing videos of his latest pastries that customers can try for free on the day of their debut right outside his store. This unique approach not only drives foot traffic to his stores but also creates a buzz that resonates with his audience as they get to be the first to try the latest creations and meet the chef himself.

The Iconic Look-Alike Fruits

Among Grolet’s many masterpieces, his look-alike fruit desserts are some of the most popular on social media, with many content creators doing videos where they try each of the desserts. These creations, which mimic the appearance of real fruits, are made with such precision and attention to detail that they often leave people questioning whether they are looking at a piece of fruit or a dessert. 

These look-alike fruits have become a signature element of Grolet’s brand, frequently featured in his social media posts. Their visual appeal and the surprise element when people realize they are desserts, not real fruits, make them perfect for social media content. 


By opening stores in key global locations and sharing captivating content online, Cedric Grolet has built a very international brand. His look-alike fruit desserts, in particular, have become iconic, showcasing his ability to surprise and delight with each creation. As Grolet continues to push the boundaries of pastry art, his social media channels will undoubtedly remain a window into his deliciously imaginative world.
