Angelina Chocolat Chaud watercolor on Etsy
I was thinking yesterday in the heat, maybe I'd find an iced Chocolat chaud at Angelina...
Instead I looked for a pastry to paint.
I've always wondered about this Religieuse Fraise/strawberry...
I asked the server if he could put my non-slip paper under the pastry since the last time the tarte fruits rouge kind of exploded all over the place slip-sliding around the box. The server handed me my box and said,
"Un cadeau for you! Since you 'lost' the last pastry. What?!
I went outside
Across the street in the Tuileries jardins the shoot-de-shoots was turning somersaults crazily. I carried my prized pastry home on tip-toe. No wonder French girls wear ballerinas.
Back home the moment of truth. Did the pastry survive the trip?
Ta Da! Thanks to Frederic Cassel's non-slip lining paper dear Religiese Fraise arrived in one piece!
But the heat was too much for a proper cross-section view of the delights inside - a surprisingly light dessert of chou pastry, strawberry cream, strawberry confit and strawberry icing. None of it overly sweet. Et voila!

Doesn't this confisier/candy man look like a Religieuse Fraise?
