Delifrance has introduced three new tarts (from top): Chocolate ($4.50), Almond Pear ($3.80) and Lemon ($4.50).

Also, together with the slices of pear are flavourful almond cream and generous amounts of almond flakes.

Christmas Macarons from Bonheur Patisserie

1

Hi everyone! I am back and still adjusting to the humid albeit extremely wet weather in Singapore. Also, I am currently sorting out my photographs of Finland, but I promise they will be up next week. Until then, it is back to a post on food (my favourite subject).

If you are a regular visitor to my blog, Bonheur Patisserie will not be unfamiliar to you! Their character macarons are a favourite of mine and I have been regularly seeking them out during the weekends for new characters. The thing about macarons from Bonheur Patisserie is that they are not only good to look at but equally delicious to eat.
