Today started with a beautiful wintery sunrise:
We got up fairly early and headed in to Edmonton for the first day of the Duchess Bakeshop Provisions store sale. Hoping to get some supplies for Laurence - however the sale was pretty useless - just a small discount on Christmas treats - none on actual baking products...so after a quick look round we headed next door to the actual bakery. It was Susannahs first visit, but it was also VERY busy - we had to wait for a table, but the guy who gave us his table also walked across the store and got an extra chair for us which was really nice of him :)
I chose a Champagne and Pomegranate mousse. It was AMAZING. The tiny macaroon was sitting on a square of thin white chocolate:
Susannah chose a chocolate croissant and Laurence had a lemon tart.
On the way out we stopped by the window to see the HUGE gingerbread house - a model of Notre Dame Cathedral. It took 300 hours to make!
The sugar glass windows were stunning:
