Maison Blanc has recently launched their summer range of sweet treats. I sampled them on a warm Saturday in their picturesque Hampstead location. All very attractive, and lots of fruits, especially berries, as one would imagine. There are three vibrant macarons - Blackberry, Ispahan and Lemon, of which the first two have berries generously nestled in between, but then the Lemon is particularly tangy and nice. Aesthetically they lacked uniformity unfortunately, and the domes were not perfectly smooth -- but they don't disappoint in terms of taste. Also included are three cute cupcakes - Strawberry Cream, Lemon Curd and Choco Berry. The frosting's soft and creamy, with the sponge sweet and moist (everyone hates this word but it's only good in the context of cakes).
Lastly are their two tarts - Lemon Hibiscus and Tarte Aux Fraises, which are both just so delicate and pretty. The former has this lovely light pink mousse topped with rose petals, and the latter has a surprise pistachio frangipane underneath the cream. The pastry cases were perfect in both.
