Currants are perfect for a midday tart. Not too sweet, not too tart, not too heavy. I could go for a slice and a spot of tea right now to be honest.
At first I thought this looked like the world's fanciest doorstop or something but then I started drooling and realized that my brain knew it was awesome food so why couldn't the rest of me figure it out? The only way to eat such a fancy dessert is in the tiniest nibbles possible. You have to be careful not to compromise the structural integrity of the stack.
This looks like the ideal breakfast when I had one too many the night before and I refuse to get out of bed for another couple more hours. If my husband would humor me and bring me berries and cream I might even agree to empty the litter box!
Nothing says love like a heart shaped dessert delicately dusted with cocoa powder. Sadly, I fear cocoa powder as it seems inevitable that I will accidentally breathe some of it in when I take the first bite and then I'll cough all crazy and destroy everything. How I wish I could enjoy a dusted treat.
The one super ridiculous indulgence I allowed myself on my recent trip to Paris was a visit to Ladurée on the Champs-Élysées. It's spendy and extravagant and silly but how can I, in good conscience, run this site about cute foods and not eat at the mecca of cute food-dom? I only had a few macarons, and they were exquisite! I wish I could have packed my suitcase full of pink meringue goodies like this one but it wasn't to be.
