Geneva baker serves up ‘Peace Cake’ for 1st summit between Biden and Putin A Swiss baker has invented a “Peace Cake” to mark the first Biden-Putin presidential summit. She said it was inspired by U.S. and Russian culinary traditions. The cake shows the words “Peace of Cake” next to flags and symbols from the two countries: a doll and samovar for Russia and a Coca-Cola and marshmallows for the United States. Inside, the cake is half honey-flavored, according to the Russian tradition, and half red velvet, a kind of layer cake that is popular in the United States. “You can understand it as a ‘piece of cake’ or ‘peace cake,’” said Olga Johnson, owner of Christie’s Bakery in Geneva, where the summit took place on June 16. Johnson has Russian parents and is married to an American. “The plan wasn’t to sell the cake, the plan was just to have like a souvenir,” said Johnson. She said she hoped the cake would make people smile. (Reuters) First Biden-Putin summit makes small gains U.S. President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed June 16 to hold arms control and cybersecurity talks, recording small gains and big differences at a first summit they both described as pragmatic rather than friendly. The discussions at the lakeside Villa La Grange in Geneva lasted three hours. The U.S. president said they had been intense and detailed, and that “we didn’t need to spend more time talking.” Putin, 68, called Biden, 78, a constructive, experienced partner, and said they spoke “the same language,” but added that there had been no friendship.
