Laduree Miniatures

I have converted my miniature cookbook library into my very own Laduree shop. Complete with faux marble counter with macarons, and other french pastry delights! (I made the marble counter by gluing pre-baked fimo "marble effect" clay onto a lightweight balsa table I made- this counter used up 4 packets of clay!) Some of these items will be available soon on my Etsy site
Marie Antoinette cake

The marble counter took me a week to complete and a whole lot of kneading! I had a few mishaps along the way -some prebaked parts were not measured well so they did not all fit perfectly. I will remember those mistakes for when I make my second attempt at another marble counter!

More french desserts...

I made the shopping bag as well :)

Tri of Laduree Wedding/ Celebration cakes...

What are your favorite macaron flavors? (my one has to be salted butter caramel-or is it orange blossom? maybe pistachio...)

Laduree Sydney Opening

In celebration of the iconic french tea house and patisserie opening here in Sydney, I have once again started making french macaron towers and pastries. As you can see in the pictures I got a little bit obsessed over Laduree's boxes and pretty packaging that I just had to keep buying their scrumptious macarons every time I visit the shop. 

After a long 3 month absence (due to overwhelming orders for miniature and lifesize cakes plus the demands of a fulltime job) here are some new pictures- with more to come in the following days. 

Pretty Pretty boxes... I cannot get enough of them...

Wedding giveaways that come with 1 macaron inside...
