Tasty treats

Macaroons! How pretty, how girly, how utterly Marie Antoinette-y! I was at at the launch of Ladurée, who have a fancy new concession at Brown Thomas Grafton Street, and got to nab me some macaroon goodness.

They’re such pretty things to photograph…

Filled with crumbly, buttercream goodness

I think the lemon one was my favourite. No wait, the chocolate. Or maybe the mixed berries…

So pretty were they, in fact, that I even took a few more shots when I got home(of course, there weren’t quite as many by that stage…)

They cost €1.50 a pop, and you can also get them packaged in swanky designer boxes – I was very happy with my haul, a pretty Christian Louboutin one.

      They are sooo tasty. The lemon ones in particular. And you should see the set-up in Brown Thomas! Marie Antoinette would be proud 🙂

    I love Laduree macaroons! They are the best in the world! Ever get them in Paris? I want to get me a box now. The photos make them look ten times more cute than they are. If that’s even possible! Thanks for sharing your yummy treat!

      I WISH I could have them in Paris, what bliss that would be! Maybe next year… You should defo pop into BTs, even just to look at the whole set up and displays- I think they’re even doing macaroons wedding towers! How fab.
