With small bites all the rage these days, it makes perfect sense to serve cupcakes or mini treats at your wedding or other occasion instead of the traditional multi-tiered celebration cake. And, if you wish to bring the flavor of the Caribbean to your party, look no further than J'aime Les Bonbons Patisserie. Executive Pastry Chef Elise Pierre-Louis has drawn on the recipes passed down from her Caribbean-born grandmother and mother to showcase the best of Island cuisine. A carrot cake so moist and delicious, a red velvet cake finished with gold dust, and an unforgettable rum cake (Elise calls it INFAMOUS!) are just a sample of the delights you and your guests may enjoy. J'aime Les Bonbons is more than decadently delicious cupcakes—cheesecakes, sugar cookies, and brownies round out the selection so everyone can find a favorite. We couldn't resist a tasting when Chef Elise describes her confections with such sensual phrases as euphoric and seventh heaven. We sampled one called Cloud Nine—and yes it was heavenly!
So if you are looking to modernize the ages-old wedding cake tradition, have J'aime Les Bonbons Patisserie send in cupcakes and other sweets. After all, Everyone Loves Treats!
(By the way, the English translation of J'Aime Les Bonbons is Everyone Loves Treats. If we were naming this fabulous little bakeshop, we would have called it Everyone Loves Elise's Treats!)
