So you didn't just think I went to Paris and not visiting Laduree or even documenting it did you...?

I actually managed to make two visits. One to my favorite Laduree located on Champs-Elysees and the new Laduree at Rue  Bonaparte. We did have lunch and cakes twice, and I know I am spoiled rotten;)

Also had a great time inside the Rue Bonaparte as they had a shop devoted to candles, ribbons, books and ahhh so many beautiful things. I did bought myself a candle and once in a while I open the lid on the very beautiful box, close my eyes and I feel like I am back. It smells divine.

Here you have some pictures of our very much enjoyed lunches at Laduree. The new cupcakes were a hit around my table:) I have to make them in mini of course.


We always have  hot cocoa. It is great paired with something savory. Like this Laduree  club sandwich.


The new cupcakes:)) Chocolate and lemon. Surprisingly I liked the lemon the most. Don't you just love the design..I ask myself…”why do I do this for free”..;)

It almost start looking like a commercial...It is not. I am just a big fan!



                  Here you can see some of the new boxes…and me;)


One new box had to be purchased of course. Do you see the different flavors of the macarons?



So until next time Paris and Laduree……je t'aime
