It's been exactly 1 week since I saw The Grand Budapest Hotel the newest film from Wes Anderson. All my closest friends know how much I adore his films and each one is a never ending source of visual ecstasy. He builds such beautiful worlds for his characters to inhabit and they are so meticulously filled with the perfect props it's hard to choose a favourite sometimes. For those who have seen the film Mendl's is the patisserie that Agatha, Zero's love interest works at. It's pretty central to the story line but I won't say anymore because I would not want to spoil it for those who have yet to see it.
All that can be said is that Mendl's pastries looked delicious and the packaging is so adorable with the light pink boxes and blue ribbon. It really makes me wish there was a Mendl's in real life that I could visit. The beautiful desserts used in my photos are from Yann Haute Patisserie. They in my opinion make the best desserts and of course macarons in the city!
For those who want a little piece of Mendl's in their life you can make the box pictured above to put your homemade desserts or just to have on a shelf to look pretty.
What you will need:
Pink card stock
I used the visual because you can make it any size you want and simply tape together 5 print outs to make a large box. The box template only makes a small box which is still great to store jewelry or tiny bits.
