I started Ooh La La Artisan Confectionery in 2009, inspired by my passion for food and France.
Our confectionery is hand-crafted using the finest ingredients selected locally and imported from all over the world. We manufacture our confectionery the traditional artisanal European way... slowly in copper cauldrons and cast iron pots. They are then hand- cut and hand-wrapped.Our confectionery is all natural, we use no artificial flavors,preservatives or colors. Most of our ingredients are organic or obtained from reputable farms. Because this is artisan confectionery, each batch varies slightly in its degree of softness or hardness and also in the size and shape of each confection.
This marvellous confection from Aix en
Provence, France was created a long
time ago as a result of a love affair
between a pastry chef and his queen.
This Marshmallow Wedding Cake is the first of its kind in the world! All 6 tiers, are made entirely of solid, but light as air, coconut-flavoured, handmade marshmallow dusted with specially imported shredded coconut and adorned with sugar-paste works of art. It is a whimsical, completely original and utterly delicious take on what a wedding cake should be. It is inspired by the extravagant era of King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette of France, whose intricately sculpted sugar-paste characters grace the pinnacle of this 6 tiered cake.
Many have heard the tale that in the days leading up to the French Revolution, Marie Antoinette uttered the words "let them eat cake!" Research has revealed a story, perhaps a myth, even more intriguing. King Louis XVI actually said to Marie Antoinette, "Let them eat marshmallow!" (Marshmallows were originally made of marshmallow root which was used to treat stomach pains including those caused by hunger.) To this Marie Antoinette implored "No! No! Marshmallows are my favourite......Let them eat cake!""
