Merry Christmas/Joyeux Noel
And, as is deliciously true every year, each shop has lots of different kinds of cakes to choose from. Here’s just a little sampling of 2007’s treats. For those who love chocolate, there’s this sparkly, elegant buche from Claire Damon of Des Gateaux et du Pains.
La Maison du Chocolat’s classic Christmas offering
And chocolatier Jean-Paul Hevin‘s boxy buche
Vanilla got the royal treatment from Pierre Herme
and from Fauchon, where their Baroque Buche had a very bridal feel
And if you wanted something more colorful, you could head to Laduree, which has been celebrating the ballet this season
Or to Dalloyau, where the cakes get more and more playful with each collection
And here’s the buche we’ll be having in a couple of hours (it’s coffee and it’s from Pierre Herme)
If only I could share it with each and everyone one of you… Wishing you all a joyous Christmas, one filled with warmth, love, friendship and, of course, lots of good things to eat.
