The London bakery is celebrating Bastille Day with a “Frenchie Religieuse”; a double-decker cream puff filled with Nutella cream and decorated with a striped t-shirt and meringue beret.
The July 14 Fête de la Fédération marks the first anniversary of the storming of the Bastille, became a French national holiday in 1880, and has been observed ever since.
Dominique Ansel’s sweet nod to France’s national day launches today and is available until July 16th. Dominique is also available to comment on the best way to celebrate the French holiday and we can provide any recipes that may be of interest for the celebration.
Description: A double-decker cream puff filled with Nutella cream and decorated up in a striped shirt and meringue beret.
Available: 10th – 16th of July
