JC makes another appearance

My workmate RR recently bought selection of goodies from Chez Jean Claude Patisserie for afternoon tea to celebrate his birthday.

I sneaked in ahead of time to take photos, of course. I lifted the lid from the box, and wow! Even after half a dozen or so morning/afternoon teas featuring Jean Claude fare, I still get excited when I see the bright and shiny colourful little mini pastries.

We cut everything in half 1) which gave the illusion you were eating less and 2) allowed you to try a couple of different items (I did say “illusion”, as we certainly didn’t “eat less”!). I had half a custard donut to begin with. The custard was creamy, the donut soft and chewy.

I also had half a jam donut. It was very sweet!
