Maison Blanc’s summer patisserie range

Uncategorized

I was invited to sample Maison Blanc’s summer patisserie range. Reviewing cakes, that’s my dream job! I chose to visit the Fulham Road store. It was a gorgeous summer day, perfect to try out summer patisserie, and I had brought my two year old daughter with me.  I had told her we were going to eat cakes so she was very excited. We approached the store and our eyes lit up! A brightly rainbow coloured display of macaroons, tarts and cupcakes welcomed us.


My daughter and I sat down. I had my daughter’s buggy but there was plenty of room, which is great. There’s nothing worse than trying to manoeuvre a buggy between tables and chairs. The cafe was very spacious there was also an outside area to the back of the restaurant. I was sat opposite the counter. The shop was very popular and a lot of the customers appeared to be regulars. I can see why as the service is very friendly.


Our table began to fill up with a selection of treats.

Ispahan Macaron 

A gorgeous pink crisp macaron filled with rose fragrant cream diplomat and fresh raspberries

Lemon Hibiscus Tart

A stunning summer inspired pastry filled with rhubarb and rosewater compote topped with lemon and hibiscus cream, decorated with edible petals.

Tarte aux Fraises 

Perfect crumbling pastry filled with pistachio almond cream, light mousseline cream finished with fresh strawberries and pistachio

Lemon Curd Cupcake 

A zingy lemon sponge with a lemon cream centre, topped with the most delicious lemon curd buttercream

My daughter indulged in a beautiful little dotty the ladybird dessert.


With our tummies full and cake smeared faces (mine only slightly). We said our thank yous and goodbyes and were given the remainder of the summer range to take away. A very welcome surprise for my husband and son later that evening.

Strawberry Cream Cupcake and Choco Berry Cupcake 

A moist vanilla sponge topped with strawberry buttercream and strawberry drizzle.

Chocolate sponge topped with blackcurrant buttercream, violet drizzle and a fresh blueberry

Lemon Cream Macaron  

Sunshine yellow macaron shell filled with a silky lemon butter cream

Blackberry Mac-nifique Macaron

Beautiful purple macaron filled with vanilla cream diplomat and fresh blackberries


The macarons are so pretty to look at. They do taste as good as they look too. The buttercream on the cupcakes is amazing, it’s so silky and the sponge is lovely and moist. Unfortunately the cupcakes didn’t make it home in perfect condition as I had transported them home on the bottom of my daughters buggy. This was definitely not a concern for my son and husband when they enjoyed their after dinner treats. Of course I had to sample a piece of each too for review purposes! 😉

Gorgeous summer treats which can be enjoyed in store or at home, they also deliver!

Thank you to Red Kite PR and Maison Blanc for inviting me to sample their Summer range.
