Valentine’s Day is the most precious day of the year where couples get to treat each other like kings and queens. Starting the day off with a tasty breakfast, doing your mid-day activities and ending up in a Gatsby-like restaurant for an astonishing dinner. And then.. how to end the beautiful day with mouth-watering pastries and chocolates created by the best of the best. For some inspiration for this year, have a look at some of the pretty creations made by well-known pastry shops in 2018.
For the sweetheart that does not want to give an average box of chocolates, Bottega Louie Patisserie is the perfect solution. You would have to travel all the way to L.A. for this exclusive Valentine’s Day gift, but then you had something too. A beautifully arranged gift box with vibrant colored macarons, chocolate cake with strawberry cremeux and champagne mousse and chocolate covered vanilla butter cookies. All wrapped up in their signature Bottega Louie pink box.
Dalloyau chose Valentine’s Day for various creations with flamingos. With flavors such as coconut, jasmine and lychee, the pastries were absolutely finger licking tasty. Three variations, all in the shape of heart, were made to combine rich flavors for a beautiful day.
La Maison Du Chocolat
“Au cœur des Jardins” was the name of the chocolate creation made by Nicolas Cloiseau of La Maison du Chocolat. With four different flavors in a classic box designed by Kim Roselier, this Valentine’s Gift was the way to many hearts. Combinations such as chocolate and orange, chocolate and jasmine, chocolate and lemon, chocolate and ginger were created to give an exclusive Parisian taste experience.
As Ladurée is probably best known for its colorful macaroons, they offer a wide range of delicious pastries. For previous Valentine’s Day, Claire Heitzler created a collection that pleased many lovers. The Déclaration d’Amour was the true ode to Valentine’s. Accompanied by a special designed Jewel Box for Macaroons and the ‘Coffret Louise’ filled with chocolats, Laduree’s Valentine’s day was as enchanting as their name.
