Pierre Hermé

If I'm the one buying macarons I'm not awfully experimental.

But I received a box of Pierre Hermé macarons lately as a thank you gift, and I was able to try a wider range of flavours.

Now I'm really not a fan of Turkish Delight as they always taste like soap to me, but the Rose macaron was amazingly delicate and fragrant. Other memorable ones were mint and matcha. Okay, now I'm officially hooked to Pierre Hermé! I can't really compare to Laduree as the last time I had those was over a year ago in Tokyo (from what I remember they were lovely too). But obviously they're much better than supermarket versions. Guys, do yourself a favour and get the real deal! 

I have to say though, the Paul macaron on steroids is in a league of its own...

I know I probably shouldn't, but I love it too.

Pedo Smile & Lola's

It was obsession at first sight when I showed my friend the pedo smile, and it has been an integral part of our friendship ever since. So I thought it was only appropriate that, for his birthday, I ordered Lola's cupcakes with his pedo face on it.

I have loved Lola's cupcakes for a while now, especially their peanut butter cupcake... These ones with the edible image on top turned out amazingly well. Needless to say, he was ecstatic. Yet another reason to love them!

When you collect your order from the store you also get a free mini cupcake and coffee. It was quite a task balancing a fragile box of cupcakes with a cup of coffee but I left feeling very happy about the whole experience.

Yea I've been away for a long long time.. but my final year exams are finally over! It's so weird to have my life back, I have no idea what to do with it. x
