Birthday Countdown Wish List | Macaroon Cakes and Sparklers!


Hello, birthday week!!! I know I must make it to the end of the week, but I'm becoming exceedingly excited for the festivities to begin! There's no denying that I'm officially in my late twenties as I decided "mid" ended at 26, but no worries, getting older is just another reason to celebrate with a little more panache than that of my early twenties drunken debaucheries! Wouldn't a cake made of dainty macaroons from famous French Bakery Laduree be perfectly fabulous? Of course there must be champagne, and I'm thinking sparklers would be utterly splendid!

On an unrelated note, how was your weekend luvies? Mine was filled with dear friends, mani and wine dates alfresco (we had the most delicious torrentes!), a soda shop brunch (alfresco of course!), pretty cupcakes, a stylish arrival from Temperley London, a jaunt to the library, a mini Sunday night dinner date (you guessed it, alfresco!), and a fall afternoon walkabout in which we encountered a grandstand street performing band! I couldn't have asked for anything more! Cheers to another week!

Your weekend sounds loverly! Can you believe I have still not tried a macaroon? I'm guessing there's probably some dainty little shop I can find them in here in NYC, but I still haven't gotten around to it. So why don't you mail me one if you end up getting that cake:)

Love Laduree macaroons. I feel like they are most talked about cookie in the blogosphere lately. I guess everyone loves them and I cannot blame them - they are a joy to the eye and a pleasure to the tummy.

You are making me crave a macaroon for breakfast now.
