Vanilla is the second most valuable spice in the world (after saffron) and here’s another fun factoid:
the Vanilla Bean pod is actually the only edible fruit of an orchid plant. When my husband was in Papua New Guinea and saw countless vanilla pods growing wild, the local farmer was unaware
of the value of the pods saying it was ‘just fruit of the orchids’. Flavoured with the whole vanilla bean pod, using the seeds in the shell and the pod skin in the ganache, these macarons have the truest taste of vanilla. Nothing plain about vanilla at Anges!

So apparently people are actually buying cakes with the sole intention to destroy them for a photo. For realsies, it’s a thing, and it’s called the cake smash. And if you’re anything like me, the thought of a celebration cake smashing, smooshing or squishing is pretty horrifying. But that’s exactly what some people are doing ON PURPOSE when their kidlet turns one.
