Another sneaky one!!!!

This picture was just another sneaky photo taken as we were taking tea( the french cannot make tea!!LOL)and cake in Laduree. Thats why it looks a little blurred!!
I am looking forward to showing some of my purchases from SIMP. They are all for my new French inspired nursery roombox. It is partly completed, but I was hoping to have it decorated before I showed my stuff. If I manage to get the back wall done, I will take some photos at the weekend.
Welcome to all my followers old and new. Jain xx

    I went to france with a whole crowd of cub scouts and we too went to the most beautiful cake shop. I just couldn't pick because there were so many and all beautiful.

  7. hi Jain,i visited your blog ,is very nice.come to visit my blog(

  8. Your new blog looks great!

    There have been countless pictures of French Macaroons in all my favorite blogs. Both full size and in miniature. Since I have never personally seen a real one (never mind never having eaten one). I am really getting curious! Macaroons in my experience have always been those chewy super sweet coconut cookies. Are the ones I keep seeing soft or crunchy? What flavors do they make them in.,

    BTW...I wonder why they don't allow pictures to be taken in Laudree? I loved seeing the inside of it. It's gorgeous.

  9. Thanks All,
    Yes, we did have a fabulous time. All the cakes were just gorgeous and it was so hard to choose just one.
    I'm not sure how the macaroons are made. They are sort of like a soft biscuit, very crumbly and come in loads of flavours. They have a jammy or creamy layer in the middle.
    Dont know why they dont like photos inside. I took mine without a flash, in a flash!!!!!LOL Jain xx
