A little chocolate, my dear?



At A la Mère de Famille on Rue Cler, this large chocolate deer drew quite a crowd. Miam-miam!

My chocolate tempering skills need some polishing before I attempt to re-create this one at home. Lovely, Genie!

Andy said...

My mouth is watering!

Malyss said...

Huumm! But I would not dare to bite in such a beautyful thing!

Laurent said...

Miam miam as we say in French !
To answer your question, we do not have snow for the moment but we may have some tonight which I do not want as I fly to London tomorrow ...

Virginia said...

I think I would have had to break off that ear and make a run for it.

Aren't we glad we know a REAL jetsetter like Laurent! :)

Now would be the time to use the expression "leche vitrine".

Alexa said...

A little chocolate? Why, don't mind if I doe!
Does anyone actually get to eat this fabulous beast, do you suppose?

The Armchair Parisian said...

I'm going to chase Virginia for that ear!

Starman said...

Are those rhinestone eyebrows?

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Bibi -- Miam-miam!

Shell -- My skills stop at macarons and tartes. Chocolate sculpting? uh, non.

Léia -- I think that there were 4 or 5 smaller animals in the window as well

Andy -- I think that this just might give me a "chocolate headache."

Malyss -- I agree... when we make a gingerbread house (or receive one as a gift) we never eat it

Laurent -- Safe travels to London and I hope that the weather cooperates

Virginia -- The ear is yours! Laurent is a jet setter but flying to London from Paris is 25 minutes and you can drive it in about 5 hours.

Nadege -- Leche vitrine, indeed!

o2 -- C'est vrai...

kathrin -- Merci! Big hug to you, too

Alexa -- I do wonder what becomes of these treats... so many shops have extraordinary creations. We saw a cameo of white/dark chocolate on our recent visit.

Armchair Parisian -- She may be hard to catch... the other one is all yours!

Starman -- I think that it is the gold leaf that you see on pastries -- I wonder about the antlers...

Cildemer said...

Très belle photo.
Et, oh oui! Je ne pourrai refuser un petit bout de chocolat!
Miam miam;o)

Bises
et belle fin de semaine, Genie****

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Cildemer -- Et, pour toi... un petit bout de chocolat ou peut-être beaucoup de pieces de chocolat.

Biz et bonne fin de semaine à toi aussi!

Randy said...

Boy she has some set of eyelashes on her. I wonder if they chocolate too.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Randy -- I want a piece of the leftovers when they take down the display!

This could be a fun and tasty way to reenact a famous scene from "The God Father". Nice find!
