This diplomat was Paul Antal Esterhazy, one of the most admired men in the whole Austro-Hungarian Empire. That cake was a success! Since the chef who cooked it remained unknown the cake brought the name of a minister for whom it was made. Therefore, this delicious dessert now carries the name Esterhazy.
