Sucré is a dessert boutique in New Orleans specializing in macarons, chocolate and cakes.
It’s been nearly six months since my trip to New Orleans but I have a few more posts to share. Some of you might recall that I did two very sweet giveaways with Sucre a few years back. At the time, I didn’t have any plans to visit New Orleans any time soon, so while I loved the chocolates and macarons, I soon forgot where their store was located. When I was researching for my trip, Sucre kept coming up as a good spot to buy King cake, and I thought the name sounded awfully familiar. And then it came to me.
It was pretty exciting to see the storefront after tasting their sweets years ago. Inside, it’s like a confectionery heaven. Colorful macarons, mini cakes, ice cream, chocolate, etc.
Vanilla Almond Cake
We chose a delicate vanilla almond cake to share. It was light and airy with a pale pink macaron shell perched on top. After you choose your desserts, they put them on glass plates, add some caramel sauce drizzles, making the presentation even nicer.
Mardi Gras macaron
Since Mardi Gras was coming up, they had these special macarons made in Mardi Gras colors. I honestly can’t recall the flavor, but I really enjoyed eating the colorful creation.
We also shared a slice of the King Cake and ended up buying a whole one to bring home. Unlike most King Cakes which are decorated with sprinkles, this one had a shimmery pastel glaze that made it look so elegant.
Overall, we had a good time here. I can see why it is so popular and the store offers a lot of different desserts. We’d definitely stop in again next time we visit New Orleans.
