From February 1st - 25th, Vanille will host a special sweetheart tea featuring signature pastries, scones and finger sandwiches and Benjamin's tea. Savor bites like goat cheese, caramelized shallot and thyme tarts; smoked gruyere gougéres; and sweet treats like strawberry champagne macarons.
Vanille is also offering 6,12 or 24 piece French macaron gift boxes that feature flavors including Caramel, Vanilla, Chocolate, Raspberry, Pistachio, Coconut, Coffee, Red Velvet, Hazelnut, Nutella, Mango Passion, Rose and Lavender. The colorful sandwich shaped desserts boast a crunchy meringue shell encapsulating a burst of flavor at its creamy core.
The French bakery will also be offering their Stud Muffins which feature a combination of Vanille's favorite cakes from rich red velvet and luscious chocolate to light and fluffy white buttermilk. Each Stud Muffin is topped with one of the patisserie’s signature French macarons.
