“Strawberry Sugar Milk Cookie Lolita” & Desserts Appreciation Day!

Did you like my crazy post title? Last March, Volks released two adorable outfits called the Strawberry Milk Heart set, and the Sugar Milk Cookie set; and earlier this year they re-released them with a colour flip (called the Strawberry Milk Cookie and Sugar Milk Heart set)! Are we all utterly confused with the names yet?! I know I am! A few days ago I rounded up Machiko, PlasticFantastic and Sam on short notice to come to my house and celebrate these adorable outfits!

Lily, Yuki, Mashiro, Serena, Nia, Juliette, Maya and Cirno look so sugary sweet and adorable!

In my title I did mention something about desserts, didn’t I? ^__~”
A magical box arrived from Snowfern Clover a few days ago containing some of her stunning miniature desserts. Sid was captivated by the raspberry-rose and lychee Ispahan.

Moe’s Sweet Treats!

I hope all my friends had a lovely Valentine’s Day! Today Moe wants to share some beautiful French desserts with you! Here she has a plate of macarons and a Raspberry-Rose eclair!

Want something more substantial than that? Try the Religieuse Rose from Ladurée! It’s a delicate fondant-crowned crème-filled choux puff and baby crème-filled puff on top.

In the mood for something more decadent? How about the Saint-Honoré Rose Framboise from Ladurée?

With it’s delicately rose-flavoured chantilly cream, miniature choux pastry puffs and fresh strawberries it is a delight for eyes and the tastebuds!

Moe’s delicious treats were hand-crafted by Snowfern Clover (without a magnifying glass!! 0__0″). I’ve been a fan of her beautiful miniatures for quite some time, but she has only more recently posted 1:3 scale items on her etsy shop. With the obsession that my sister and I have for Ladurée, and the Saint-Honoré Rose Framboise in particular I couldn’t pass on these beautiful miniature pastries!

My sister and I have dined and shopped at many Ladurée tearooms and boutiques in London, Paris and Tokyo; it’s a bit of an addiction really! Here’s a photo from last November when we went to the Ladurée tearoom in Harrods in London and had a decadent afternoon tea!
