Macaroons in the Wonderland

The return of Alice in the Wonderland in the hand of Tim Burton, adds fantasy with 3D and animation. I'm going to watch it soon!

I watched the original version of Alice in the Wonderland, cartoon version by Disney, about 15 years ago. I love the cartoon as it's more of a fantasy land than a fairy tale.

The come back of this film, draws the attention of many retailer, creating lots of Alice's merchandise. It's all from Paul & Joe make-up range, to OPI Mini Nail Lacquer set, Miss Selfridge's Alice inspired t-shirt and a lot more! Even macaroon is inspired by the comeback of Alice in the Wonderland!

I went to Paris during end of January, for some de-stress. And fpund out about the very famous double-decker macaroons that was invented by the French pâtisserie, Ladurée. We hunt for their main store in Avenue des Champs Elysée:

We were so excited when we saw this! Went in there and told the sales person what we want. My forefinger was pointing at the glorious macarons, said:

"I want one each of these."

The feeling of excitement and being a forefinger customer is so much fun! (It's something that we can afford to buy one of each in Champ Elysée, not like some rich women went in to Louis Vuitton buying luxury goods using forefingers! LOL!) We just can't wait to try each and every single flavour!

I just can't wait any longer, had one large vanilla macaroon on Avenue des Champs Elysée, before even having my lunch! Vanilla is far most the best ever! Vanilla ice-cream's the best, too!

Look at its colour!!

OKAY, back to my main point.

Ladurée, too has limited edition macaroons, made based on Alice in the Wonderland, only available in selected store.

It is in a stunning music box adorned with emblematic images as a tribute to the enchanting world down the rabbit-hole that Ladurée imagines its new limited series gift box.

The new macaroons flavour is green apple. It's a new flavour Ladurée proud to present, that it's both both tender and tart, bold yet refined. Astonishing colour of Granny Smith green is just so charming! *Drooling* I want one!
