Are flowers too classic for you? The Toulouse caterer “Maison Charlotte”, located in the Saint-Michel district of Toulouse, suggests another idea. A bouquet… to eat! Perfect for food lovers. This is the second edition of these unusual bouquets on sale for Valentine’s Day on February 13 and 14, in a limited edition.
A bouquet to eat, what does it consist of?
For the lovers’ celebration, the Toulouse caterer wanted to bring together the two symbols of Valentine’s Day: flowers and cakes, in a single bouquet. So, the arrangements are made of pretty edible flowers, but also of small cakes.
It was in February 2023 that the first bouquet to eat was born from an idea by Anne Morin and her team. “We have rethought the symbols of Valentine’s Day, which are cakes and flowers. Let’s mix business with pleasure: a bouquet of cakes and edible flowers, enriched with dried flowers that will last over time! There has been real enthusiasm around the concept, which is why we are launching the second edition of the ‘crunchable bouquets’ this year! » declares Anne Morin, manager of “Maison Charlotte”.
Four types of compositions
This year, four types of compositions are available, designed for all budgets:
• The Mini Bouquet is made up of around seven cakes: soft, flavorful madeleines
chocolate, lemon… but also melting marshmallow hearts, and chocolate and
fleur de sel (€15)
• The Toulouse Bouquet is garnished with around ten pieces in purple tones: fine fluted
white and violet chocolate, including pink praline flavored cookies and even
Crispy “diamond” shortbread with violet (€22)
• Le Bouquet New-York surprises with nearly fifteen gourmet creations
original: s’mores in the shape of flowers, succulent chocolate-marshmallow candies, but also
spiral shortbread and trompe-l’oeil donuts (€27)
• Le Bouquet Paris gives pride of place to nearly twenty biscuits in pink tones:
white/pink chocolate macaroons, chocolate/fleur de sel cookies, but also soft
madeleines with orange, chocolate… (€30)
