Bonhomme de neige - Dalloyau


This snowman is not for the fainthearted, those on a diet... or on a budget.

He would be pretty cute to serve for a little dinner party!

Sheer hedonism.

I've never seen the name for "snowman" in French before. A very happy name it is too.

Shell Sherree said...

It is a happy name, isn't it, Joe! And it would make a fine Christmas bombe alaska with the necessary variations! A lovely photo for the season, Genie. {And for any season}

I couldn't bear to cut into that sweet little snowman..he is a work of art.

He looks so cute, very contented with himself. I couldn't eat him.

Sam @ My Carolina Kitchen said...

I could only admire him, never take a bit though. He's much too charming to eat.

Too cute! It must be wonderful to visit Paris during the Christmas season.

SRQ said...

Yes, very bad for the wallet. Who could afford that?! (But, it looks delightful.)

Sylvia K said...

Definitely not good for the budget -- or my diet for that matter, but I would love at least a bite of it! Looks delightful and delicious!

Hugs

Il est trop mimi pour manger ! :D

Malyss said...

Sometimes, things seem to be too cute to be eaten, don't you think?!

Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

Holy snowman! 34 Euros pour un bonhomme de neige?! Definitely need to freeze this little guy (you get to take him out every year that way.) Fun shot, Genie. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Unless my eyes deceive me, it would have to be a very intimate dinner party.

Alexa said...

I see you've been patisserie-hopping again, Genie. I'm in the "he's much too cute to eat" camp—so I'll just admire him and go up to Ladurée for some ugly macarons! :~}

Jean said...

Looks yummy!

Jack said...

Pass! These days I would not even think of trying something so big.

Kris said...

How could something that cute be edible? It is adorable. I would certainly forgo the diet to try this.

Miam-miam! A little too cute and definitely too pricey to eat ... I think I will just enjoy your photograph and pretend that I have wonderful will power!

Sara Louise said...

I also think he'd look pretty cute (i.e; yummy) sitting with me on the couch while I watched reality TV and dug in with a spoon! nom nom nom x

Etant donné le prix! il vaut mieux l'admirer... ou alors le déguster à petit dose!... Attention qu'il ne fonde pas trop!... La bourse elle aura fondu!
Très jolie photo cependant!
gros bisous

Paris Paul said...

Wow, for 34€ does he at least clean out your intestine while he's in there? He's already done it to your pocketbook...

James said...

Wow! I hope it's a lot bigger than it looks. :)

Bibi said...

Very cute...and I bet he's not that hard to make, if you have a good cake and are good at making meringue.

Fifi Flowers said...

Très adorable!!!

Randy said...

Looks very tasty!

TheChieftess said...

Well darn!!! He's awfully cute...but if he were set in front of me...would I take a taste??? Hmmm....food for thought!!!
