Sweets from Gourmandise Desserts

  • Pin It

Now this is the kind of status update you want to see on Facebook when you get home from work: 

PLEASE come over and take the ridiculous number of cupcakes, palmiers, macarons, petits fours, chocolates and cookies left over from our photo shoot out of our house asap!! Text me for the address...

My friend Clemence Gossett, who owns Gourmandise Desserts and is about to open The Gourmandise School of Sweets and Savories in Santa Monica, has photo shoots twice a year for her website. These lovely treats were the models. And once the photos were taken, the models were cast aside. No hesitation on my part - I got back in the car and hightailed it over to Clemence's house.

Roughly clockwise from the top left corner: oatmeal bread, red velvet cupcake, flourless chocolate cake, petits fours (which my husband called "epochal"), chocolate-covered bacon, cream puff, mini-palmiers, banana caramel cupcake, chocolate cupcake, and pistachio toffee (in the middle).

Are you jealous?

Jealous! Indeed! Especially after a long day of work and classes. I could use some sweets. Thank you for sharing with me...and for making me smile. Your words are a source of joy in my life, and in the lives of many others. I hope you have a happy Friday. The weekend is almost here, and I'm ready for it!

Yes, I am jealous! But, if they were in my house I could probably seriously hurt myself with them...

I would have driven like crazy to get those! They look divine. Wish I lived in Santa Monica.
