There are plenty of places in London to indulge in decadent desserts, but one of my favourites for pastries and sweet treats is PAUL – the French artisan bakery and patisserie with locations across London and Birmingham, Oxford and Newbury. We’re heading to my future in-laws for Easter this weekend and I made a pit-stop at the Paul near Baker Street yesterday to pick up some darling desserts to bring with me this weekend. If you need to grab some last minute Easter indulgences – PAUL should be your go-to.
My best advice is to go for a box full of phenomenal Easter cakes. My personal favourite is the Mini Oeuf la Carotte – this beautiful carrot cake is made using freshly grated carrots, soft cream cheese and vanilla syrup- topped with an iced carrot and a sprinkle of pecans for an added crunch. If you’re more of a chocoholic, go for the Oeuf Chocolate au Lait – rich milk chocolate with a vanilla frosting.
PAUL have also created these adorable hampers, filled with mini white and chocolate eggs and chocolate bunny lollipops.
For Easter Sunday, pick up a loaf of their special freshly baked Baguette Chocolat to enjoy with brunch – a chocolate baguette that tastes lovely with fresh fruit … or on its own! I LOVED this bread when I tried it yesterday – I picked up two loaves and both were gone in a day. Treat yourself (and your family) and buy a couple of these scrumptious delights for the weekend – you won’t regret it! If you are a true chocolate-fiend, PAUL are also selling their super thick, super rich, super indulgent Hot Cocoa … it is pretty spectacular. I highly recommend it.
Between delicious pastries, decadent sweets and the most heavenly chocolate bread – PAUL is the ideal-go to for all your Easter needs this weekend!
Happy Easter, everyone! x
