Post The Queen's pastries!
For the new movie "Marie Antoinette", Sofia Coppola contacted the French pastry house Laduree to make the cakes and pastries pictured in the movie. I know this is a perfectly frivolous post, (and doesn't capture the true spirit of the Queen) but the cakes just look sooo good! Enjoy! :D

Also, is it true that Marie Antoinette enjoyed the cuilinary arts? I heard that she had a particular fondness for meringue, and that she baked at the Hameau.

I just know that the relationship between Marie-Antoinette and food were discrete. :lol:
She ate very quickly and rather little, estimating that it was a waste of time. She often ate poultry.
Thus it surprises me that she appreciated the art of cooking, I never read that but all is possible :D

Oooh, I thought exactly the same thing when I first saw the previews for the new Marie Antoinette film - The cakes!!

Especially when one of the courtesses I think take a bite of something that looks really yummy
