Walking down Rue Mouffetard we saw this line of pastries reflected in the counter

Le Moule à Gâteau
111, rue Mouffetard

I could polish off all 3 with little problem but maybe a little guilt afterward.

How delectable! and all lined up like little soldiers ~ that looks like a layer of lemon curd , and I'm wondering if that's a piece of pineapple on top~ whatever it is I'll take one for me and one for later. Enjoy your week-end Genie

My goodness these look wonderful. I love this street. I searched Paris for it as I had read about it in Almost French---a true find.

Bibi said...

Yumaroo. I'm not a big sweet eater...only for birthdays, etc. but these do look good. I like the lineup.

M said...

We saw, we photographed and we did NOT taste!!! Ah, again, I wonder if we were momentarily insane on our trip (for surely we are not that self-controlled and disciplined, are we??) I really admire the way you captured the reflection!

Virginia said...

They know how to do it don't they??? I swear their pastries amaze me. I need one with my coffee this morning.

ANd W, would NOT feel guilty,trust me.

You certainly have an eye for all things French, Genie.

Too bad you couldn't send some of those down the wire to my computer.

Coté Provence said...

I'll take all 3... Heavenly treat!

ps : by the way, check out my give away from Merci (it's on my right bar)

Malyss said...

first time that a reflection makes me feel hungry..:)

RuneE said...

I think I must take another trip to Paris - and soon!

Tricia said...

Yum Yum Yuuuuuummy!!!

Jilly said...

No dessert in the house...I want to be in Rue Mouffetard!

Alexa said...

Drool-worthy, to be sure (the pastries and your photo of them)—miam from moi aussi!

Sylvia K said...

I could dive into those without a moments hesitation! Marvelous reflections! Ah, and what lovely memories they do invoke! Have a great weekend!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Wayne -- I think that these are very light so not much guilt there. Besides, there is fruit on top!

Dianne -- I believe that you are correct about the lemon curd. Just typing it makes my mouth water! Sending you two (virtually).

Sooz -- I know that you will be heading that way soon. I hope that you will blog "on the road." Take twice as many pictures as you think you should and have fun with DD!

Virginia -- Every little place has pastries that would beat what we can have on a daily basis (unless we are making them). The rest-stops on the roads have wonderful croissants.

Rob -- If I could send some "down the wire" everyone making a comment could have one. Wouldn't that be a treat! Thanks for the kind comments.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Provence -- Sending you all three and ordering more! I think that they are called Caraibe, but not sure.

Jeff -- Merci! I was "digging" to find a reflection today and was pleasantly surprised.

Sunny -- I haven't either but this on surely is doing it!

Lala -- I've been to l'Orangerie and Marmotan to see the Monets so this will be just perfect. I am headed back to your blog 'cause I love Merci!

Malyss -- It's been said that the reflections do not have any calories!

RuneE -- It makes me want to return, too, as in right now!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Tricia -- Thanks for your comments and for stopping in. Love your lake reflections today!

Jilly -- I have some banana bread but that is no temptation for me. Let's head to Paris for desserts! Hah, you can get some fine pastries in Menton.

Alexa -- I need to post some vegetables so that I won't be as hungry for sweets. miam-miam

Sylvia -- I just stopped over at your blog and left a comment. Love your little turtle reflection photo!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

M -- Yes, we really failed as gourmet food testers on our trip! There is no reason to "pig out" when you are in a different place, but I could have justified it anyway!

Bises,
Genie

James said...

This is a delicious reflection! Thank goodness for all of the walking in Paris or I'd be in real trouble. :) Yum!!!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

James -- Thanks for your comment. I am certainly enjoying all of the wonderful photos and "weekend reflections" people that you have assembled. Merci!
Genie

Elisa said...

It´s.... yummy!
Have a nice weekend

Alexa said...

Genie -- Sometimes there are excellent reasons to pig out when you're in a different place—as I think you've proven today!

Louis la Vache said...

One word: YUM!

Randy said...

I can hear my Weight Watchers leader now saying "Don't even think about Randy!" It doesn't hurt to look though. Wonderful close up!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Elisa en Argentine -- Merci pour votre commentaire. J'aime votre pays et j'y suis allée plusieurs fois. La banderole de votre blog est El Calafate? C'est magnifique!

Alexa -- We will convince Randy that you "save up" so you can indulge a bit when it is so worth it!

Louis -- Thanks! Yummy!

Randy -- We will get you to pace yourself without blowing the WW plan all to pieces!

Le Journal de Chrys said...

Hummm une petite gourmandise par ici! Merci

joo said...

Wow, looks delicious!
Have a nice weekend:)

'Tsuki said...

Ahlala... Je m'en lèche déjà les doigts... Les macarons l'autre fois, les pâtisseries aujourd'hui... Ce blog est véritablement un lieu de perdition.

SKIZO said...

Fabulous
good
creations

JM said...

Great composition, Genie! I would have one of these right now!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Chrys -- C'est vrai. Merci pour votre commentaire.

Joo -- And now I have found your site. Very nice water reflections!

'Tsuki -- Vous êtes marrant et vous me faites rire! Je suis une tentatrice avec les pâtisseries.

SKIZO -- and you are an artist with a very creative blog. Merci!

JM -- I need to quit looking at them for the same reason - hah!

TheChieftess said...

What happened in America??? Aren't most of us descendants of immigrants??? Where did our bakeries go wrong??? Most of our bakeries make stuff that's too sweet, too gooey, too, too, too...

Whew!!! Rant over...think I'll go stop by Schat's baker today and get me something sinful!!!

wv: I kid you not... ansin ...

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Chieftess -- How does "wv" know???

I totally agree with you about our woeful lack of ability to produce wonderful bread and pasteries. I am doing my part with les macarons!

Nikki-ann said...

Oh, they look delicious! :)

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Nikki-ann -- I do wish that I had eaten one! (or two!)
