After the 'burger cupcake incident' I was just about speaking to Mr G the following morning. As a peace offering he agreed to take me to Harrods so that I could visit Laduree, the ultimate in macaron heaven. It was everything I had hoped for. The macarons were so pretty. I couldn't resist purchasing a small box to take home.
I bought vanilla, pistachio, salted caramel, coconut, chocolate and raspberry. My favourites without a doubt were the vanilla and pistachio. Or maybe coconut. The vanilla filling tasted like a rich creme anglais. It was delicious. Some of the macarons did not make it for the photo! I had also bought some for Beks, which included Lemon. (Bleurgh!! Not my cup of tea at all).
We couldn't resist having a mooch around Harrods Food Hall where I stopped to purchase some Whoopie Pies. I can highly recommend the Red Velvet Whoopie Pie. It was filled with a peanut butter frosting but the combination worked well together. The peanut butter was much richer than the peanut butter frosting I make but it was amazing.
