Cakes a'plenty at Rose Bakery

How does one even begin to decide?

For eight years now, Rose Bakery has been sating Anglo Sweet Freaks in Paris. They’re most celebrated for their scones and carrot cake. The former, I’m not a fan of; but the latter, I can definitely see why these tin-can portions of carrot cake topped with cuh-reamy cream cheese frosting are a hit.

But what of the brownies and muffins?

And the many different cake varieties? Really? How does one decide between…

...lemon-polenta and marble?

Chocolate-polenta and raspberry-green tea?

Pistachio and lemon-lemon?

My strategy: a cake taste a week to solve this perplexing problem.

46, rue des Martyrs, 9eme

Wow! Those cakes look AMAZING!
and I've never seen carrot cake looking like that before--If I were you I'd go with that option ;D But then again the idea of sampling all of the cakes is an even better idea... :)

they look beautiful. i love the long ones, the marble and pistachio. i'm sure the smell of this shop would have been equally as heavenly

I NEVER ever get dessert at RB...
After that huge plate of mixed salads I'm completely sated..
Maybe too they look so big compared to Fr desserts.
Plus there are wonderful plum tartelettes down the rue or across the street at Del-Mont-Tel bright green concoctions.
I save myself for the non-Brit stuff :)
