"Qui s'en fout?", aurez-vous tendance à me dire.

Le cake, manifestement aux fruits, a été trouvé sur une étagère, dans une hutte, "parfaitement conservé" selon les conservateurs néo-zélandais du Fonds Antarctic Heritage à l'origine de la découverte.

Emballé dans une boîte en plastique, il avait été fabriqué par la pâtisserie britannique Huntley & Palmers fondée en 1822, selon l'association Antartic Heritage Trust qui œuvre pour la conservation et la transmission de l'histoire de l'exploration du pôle Sud.

Encore enveloppé dans son papier sulfurisé et confiné dans les restes d'une boite en fer rouillée, un gâteau aux fruits de plus de cent ans a été retrouvé dans une cabane en Antarctique qui abritait des explorateurs au siècle dernier.

We just made it for 60-70 percent for the chances we created and that's poor", he said. If that is going to mean better results and the title, I don't know".

La responsable a par ailleurs précisé que c'était la première découverte du genre, car "peu de gens emportent un gâteau en Antarctique si ce n'est pas pour le manger".

Le Terra Nova, dans toute sa splendeur, 1910. Il aurait été laissé par une expédition de Robert Falcon Scott en 1911.

L'expédition était alors menée par le britannique Robert Falcon Scott, un grand amateur des pâtisseries Hunley & Palmers.

Les chercheurs du Musée de Canterbury, qui se sont rendus sur place en mai 2016, ont retrouvé d'autres objets au Cap Adare.

Ce qui expliquerait la longévité du cake, ce serait tout d'abord son emballage, qui a subi tous les dommages du temps, ainsi que le climat glacial de l'Antarctique, qui a permis aux conservationnistes d'y découvrir jusqu'ici près de 1 500 artefacts.
