Valentine’s Day Pastries from Ladurée

L'Amarante cake from Ladurée

This year for Valentine’s Day, Ladurée has a couple of options for the luxe French pastry admirer in your life.

L’Amarante ($25), is a small heart-shaped cake made of light, soft almond biscuit that’s intensely flavored with Morello cherries. It’s cloud-like from the Morello cherry “blanc manger” mousse and cake, and the tart-sweet cherry flavor just sings at every bite from the cherry jam. It’s a great alternative to all the chocolates one would receive for Valentine’s.

Ladurée "I Love You" Macaron box

For something cute, the “I Love You” macaron box ($25) is more than just a pretty pastel blue and pink box printed with hearts. This box actually says, “I love you” when one lifts the lid and reveal the six colorful and delicious macarons of your choice.
