éclair à la vanille – Okay, I am definitely on a vanilla quick. After I fell in love with the Infiniment Vanille macaron at Pierre Hermé, I've been wanting to try ALL vanilla pastries. So far, I've found one vanilla macaron that is 95% as good as the one from Pierre Hermé. It will be on the blog soon for sure. This vanilla pecan éclair was amazing. It was not just sweet. You know, those pastries that have no flavor, they're just sweet? Nope, this was all vanilla, all pecan, all delicious. It was my first time going to l'éclair de génie and I'm dying to go back. They have a ton of interesting flavors! Definitely a must for any éclair lover. Also, this summer they have éclair ice-cream... I need one. I really do.
Baba au rhum – This is my first baba au rhum so I have nothing to compare it too. I really loved the vanilla cream at the bottom (duh, it was vanilla) and I wish I hadn't added all the rhum (though what a fun way to present a baba au rhum!) because it just soaked everything and went to the bottom. However it was not too sweet, so I quite enjoyed it. Pain de sucre, I am coming for more!
