Firstly, you never saw this picture. Because I wasn’t allowed to take it. Secondly, if I should pass from this world, I want nothing but Laduree macaroons served at my wake.

Well, maybe I should pick a happier thought…

When I find the gentleman I’m going to spend the rest of my life with–applications are being accepted, by the way. Finicky eaters need not apply— everyone at the wedding will get a little box of Laduree macaroons. Surely the most delicious things ever. Along with the Yauatcha ones, of course

Clearly the creation of world-class macaroons is on a par with uranium processing, in international secrecy terms.
