I’m back in the office today after some fantastic adventures in London and Paris. Post Royal Wedding, I hopped on the Eurostar to Paris to enjoy a few gorgeous warm spring days in one of my favourite cities. I’ve concluded that everything lovely and luxe in life is French and quite frankly I couldn’t get enough of it. One of my musts while in Paris of course is a stop (or two, or three) at the famous Ladurée to pick up some of their otherworldly macaroons. I have my favourite flavours…salt caramel, vanilla and this trip rose rocketed to the top of my it list. I was absolutely smitten by Ladurées macaroon cakes, displayed in the windows of both the Champs Elysees and Saint-Germaine-de-Prés locations. These confections are absolutely precious and a perfect style of cake to choose if you’re looking for something different and darling. There are lots of macroon makers here at home…check around in your area to see who can whip up a lovely Ladurée-inspired confection for your wedding.
