Let them eat cake

Our most honoured guest at New Year came bearing an arm load of cakes from Laduree, including this one called the Marie Antoinette. Merci beaucoup!
Happy New Year to all - looking forward to an Olympic 2012!

You cannot eat that. It is a work of art. But if you are so greedy we all expect you to give a mouth by mouthful account. Or have you gorged it already?
From a Wind Tossed Portinari who wishes you and all a most Happy New Year.

Presumably from Burlington Arcade rather than the Faubourg St.Honore ?
Or, have they developed a marvellous way of transporting cakes on the Eurostar ?

I would prefer an apple, and it looks too pretty to cut.

Happy New Year to you too, and wishing you success and good health for 2012.

Happy New Year, Portinari! The actual cake was a smaller version of the photo, in pistachio green. Delicious marzipan covering chocolate sponge, chocolate cream filling and a sliver of caramel wafer. Best cake I've had all year!

Bien sur, Angus!

No way, Ellee! Happy New Year to you and your family!
