Fly me to the moon: Ladurée

Not a traditionalist to go for the usual mooncakes? Here’s a fresh take on the Mid Autumn festival from Ladurée. Macarons housed in a limited edition Mid Autumn box:

While I do think the moon looks whimsical, oddly, I just get reminded of “the dish” in the nursery rhyme, Hey Diddle Diddle.

Did the macaron house perhaps get their inspiration from the rhyme??


Prices are as follows:

Mid Autumn gift box

6 pieces at S$43

14 pieces at S$80


Mid Autumn tea set (125g)

Tea set with 6 macarons S$72

Tea set with 14 macarons S$105.30


And I can’t hold it in anymore.  I just had to recite the rhyme now..

Hey Diddle Diddle,

The cat and the fiddle,

The cow jumped over the moon. 

The little dog laughed,

To see such sport

And the dish ran away with the spoon.
