Cupcake Monday! Ladurée's Noel Treats Overload
I have really been looking forward to this one! Come daydream with me, it's calorie-free. (But who cares anyway, right? Some things are worth it and more.) These heavenly treats are from Ladurée's 'Collection Noel 2011'. I think their packaging is the ultimate in pretty, when I was last in Paris I bought the Marie Antoinette loose thé you see in the blush pink paper cannister on the right because I wanted to see it in my kitchen every day, and I do! (And also because it's called 'Marie Antoinette', the combination was too much to resist.) It's displayed proudly on a shelf with my favourite teacups. Somehow it got a little scratch on the front when I brought it home - why is it never on the back?! - and I admit it nearly killed me to see it blemished. (Somehow I got over it.)
Here are more of my favourites from the collection, which is nearly everything!
