Sugar can be so beautiful and poetic! I was so dazzled when I first saw the products of Belle de Sucre. The boxes with the retro pictures are a dream! Not to mention the delicious hand packed and flavoured sugar shapes: stars, handbags, flowers, lips, stripes and hearts. The latest shapes, the monuments of Paris, are a must for every Paris fan.
I met Claire, the founder of Belle de Sucre, in Paris in October 2012. She is such a warm-hearted and idealistic person. She has always been in love with tearooms. What inspired her to launch the flavoured sugar products? “I wanted to travel and see all the tearooms in the world,” she told me.
The sugar shapes can be used to decorate cakes, plates, tea party tables, or just melted in your cup of tea. They are great for making tea time special. Your guests will be delighted to discover this unique French product.
Belle de Sucre is a confectioner based in the castle of Cornou, France, dedicated to producing unique sculptures that are hand-made from sugars. These melt in the mouth treats are produced using only organic ingredients, including fruit pulp, natural flower extracts, coffee and cocoa. Their creations are marvelous works of art .
In Switzerland, Belle de Sucre products are sold exclusively at Globus.
