Pink Pastry Perfection at the Taste of London 2010
During my recent trip to London, I attended the Taste of London 2010 restaurant festival in Regents Park. Naturally, one of my favorite tents to visit was luxury Parisian patisserie Ladurée. Of course I did sample the world's best macarons there, but I was also absolutely smitten with this dropdead gorgeous three-tiered cake. From the delicate scalloped icing and gold beads to the disc-like petals and perfectly pink palette, it was almost too pretty to eat . . . almost.
