Je jubile pour les macarons du Jubilé

What do Hello Kitty and Queen Elizabeth II have in common?

Laduree Hello Kitty MacaronsDiamond Jubillee Macarons from Laduree

 

 

They both have inspired macarons boxes from Ladurée! The oh-so-british tribute to her majesty (who is celebrating 60 years on the throne this year) will be a marked contrast to the patisserie’s traditional predilection for pastel colours. Indeed, the macarons will come in whites, dark blues and reds to match the British flag. The macarons themselves will be sold in a Union Jack commemorative box adorned with the royal crown and the emblem of the Jubilee. The limited edition, 6-macarons box will be sold starting June 1st at Ladurée stores in London (there are four of them in the Biritsh capital, plus a carosse at the airport), Paris bien sûr and… New York!! Totally getting one 😉
