Two pastries from Paris

This is a Fraisier from La Patisserie des reves,
on the left.

The best pastry I had while in Paris and purchased on my first full day there. The picture on the right shows how they prepare the box. The pink picks are pushed into a layer of foam core and they do not move. The Saint Honore was one of the worst pastries. Too bad, because it looks wonderful and is from the same shop. The glassy looking sugar coating was too thick and used to anchor the three cream puffs as well and was just inedible.
