in a bubble

OMG! I just had the BEST religieuse EVER! I regret I didn't have my camera because it was also the nicest I've ever seen. zut! So I decided to treat myself and go to the Plaza Athéné and have tea with a pastry signed by Mister World Cup 2005, Christophe Michalak. I opted for the chestnut religieuse, and I must say it was the best religieuse I ever had. Pâte à choux filled with a chestnut pastry cream, perfectly balanced, not too sweet, just enough chestnut. The glaze was a suttle mauve with a perfect mini rosace of buttercream with the tiniest piece of chestnut topped with gold leaf. I could've eaten 5 in a row...! I was in a little bubble, enjoying it fully. So few weeks left to try and enjoy some of Paris unique treats.

Um, "a pastry signed by Mister World Cup 2005"??

How much extra does it cost to have one signed? Don't they taste even better before he sticks a pen in them?
