This year, the revamped Canele has infused the traditional sweets with some new flavours that are bound to light up anyone's Christmas.

First, here are the all-time favourite 6-box Christmas Edition Macarons. With such a colourful combination, I am sure this will definitely put a smile on anybody's face.
Each Macaron is larger than the christmas macarons by Antoinette and the ganache filling is really thick and sweet. My favourite is this Gingerbread version (the orange one) because it has simply the richest festive taste of spice in its fillings.
The flavors in others were overwhelmed by the white chocolate ganache and thus were not distinct enough. Texture wise, this nougatine (yellow) filled center gave the additional crunch and a pleasant turn from jam or compote filled centers.
Fancy some log cakes? Try "Dawn" mascarpone rum mousse with the expectedly sweet chestnut cream, bitter orange marmalade and vanilla sponge.The crunchy meringue is fortunately just a thin wall layered in the middle so this is very suited for those who are usually chased away by the sugar-high mont Blanc.
Canele's christmas catalogue really gets me excited with the saliva-drooling pictures and I happily concede that I have succumbed to their marketing 'ploy'. Time to indulge in these heartwarming treats this festive season !
