More Mulot

Gerard Mulot tarts I was in Gerard Mulot yesterday picking up some gift macarons.Gerard Mulot pastries And found myself taking pictures of all these tarts and petit fours. Such endless variety.Gerard Mulot pastries This isn't even all of them!Gerard Mulot pastriesI didn't include their description tags or titles.Gerard Mulot pastries It's like going to the museum and reading all the info about the artist rather than looking at the paintings. Too much left-brain activity and not enough right-brain sensory involvement.I'm amazed at all these designs, patterns and colors even before I think about what waits within. What an artist! Just something for you to chew on over the weekend.

    This will keep me very busy this weekend AND NO CALORIES!

  2. I think I am going to have SWEET dreams tonight. and for the WHOLE weekend. How does one make a decision on what to buy?? to many to decide from for me. ;-)
    Have a great weekend carol. Almost two weeks down with two to go. Are you getting any paintings done?

    Hmmm..I would love to know what these are called and made of.
    Guess I must get more right-brained...

  4. be like L'Esquirol and grab as many as you can for later....especially the tarts! ..I would believe they can last a few are a complete stranger to me, but thank you for taking me back to Paris

  5. Are you kidding me!!!????All this and yet, I am saying more, more. Just let me wipe the drool off the incredibly elegant. and such variety. Truly wonderful. Hope you are well and having fabulous time.

  6. Delightful!
    Here's something for you to chew on over the weekend. Go to this Chocolat shop in the Marais - Chocolats Vannier, 4, rue du Pas de la Mule - 75003 PARIS. It is just off Rue des Tournelles. You could buy yourself a chocolat artist's palette even. Take a look at their website first and then I defy you not to go - ENJOY

  7. The Eiffel tower says France to some, The Lourve to others. A baguette, wine and cheese speaks French that is sure, and of course the saying oh la la.
    But this my friend, what you have captured here...This is France
    beautiful delicious and tres oh la la!
    Most French could rattle off the names of each of those cakes, while we AMericans can say chocolate chips and glazed donut.

    When watching all those colourful and appetizing foodies, I feel as if I were a little "mulot" (=field-mouse) following her town-mouse mate in the land of plenty!!!
    (my daughter is studying Jean de La Fontaine, so I keep his fables on mind!)

  9. OH!!!! My God!!!!
    Such a wondeful and elegant "desserts".
    This is so inspiring.

    Wow, Carol--you outdid yourself with these. It really is true--they are just such works of art. What creativity! Who even cares about how they taste--they just look so positively yummy! Thanks for this send-off for the weekend. I don't know how they continually come up with things more elegant than before. And the colors!...

    Hmmm...getting some "gift" macarons? Naturally, one must think of others, but was it only gift macarons you were after? If so, you're a better man than I!
    The overwhelming assortment reminds me of my first trip to our local Swiss pastry shop, Andre's. Completely unfamiliar with the contents, my eye was simply drowning in beauty! That was some 30 years ago, and I can proudly tell you that I have tasted each and every one. :-)mmmmmm..

  20. omgosh, everything looks so good!

  21. ok.I just gained 5 pounds looking at these gorgeous desserts!Wonderful places to visit, aren't they!

  22. Every time I visit your blog I think, "why is it that I am living in Pittsburgh and not Paris?!" These cakes, tarts, desserts are works of art.

  23. My mouth is watering :-)

    I made you Blog of the Week over at Britt-Arnhild's House in the Woods today :-)
