We've used them before in stories and they featured heavily in the Sophia Coppola movie Marie Antoinette - they are of course macaroons, those delicate little irresistible sweet treats.
We have it on good authority the best place to shop for macaroons is Ladurée in Paris. Not only is the store itself exquisite but the packaging is divine and worth keeping forever. And speaking from first hand experience, the macaroons are something else. Somehow, Emma managed to bring some back for us after her last trip to Paris. We all milled around the brilliant collection as if we were viewing a box of jewels. They were almost too beautiful to eat, but eat we did and they were fantastic.
Their newest addition is a selection devised by Tricia Guild, founder and Creative Director of Designers Guild. I love the colour combination and would snap this little box up in a heartbeat given half the chance.
Laduree's spectacular macaroon cake would make a fitting end to any celebration. Given their extensive flavour choices, there is sure to be a combination to suit every wedding. What fabulous inspiration.
