This is one of the reasons why I wish I was Parisian! It would be so easy to pop into a little Patisserie, stocked with a friendly atmosphere, nostalgic characteristic and delightful chocolaty and fruity works of art. Whenever I fancied it, I could just go and buy a sculptural cake that resembled a couture hat or fancy building.
I almost felt like I just couldn’t buy one – Yes it was within buying price range, but it was surely too beautiful to be consumed?!
Its true that there are quaint English bakeries who offer similar treats, but in truth, I don’t see them as competition, these aren’t just desert to your lunch, these are Art for tea!
Miss Manon is one of these ‘Haute Patisseries’ as I have now christened them!
Thank you to the kind little lady who let me get in the way of customers and take photos!
