I hear that the cakes in this film are amazing. I haven't seen the film but would love to see the cakes - does anyone have a link to any images? It would be good to build up a database of cakes used in films and their designers as they're usually gorgeous!

I read somewhere that Ladurée was chosen by Sofia Coppola to make all of the pastries and cakes for the film. They are famous for their macaroons in particular (which are also in the movie). I was lucky enough to receive a box of them as a gift from someone who went to Paris and they are DIVINE.

Here is their website:

I just have to say that the whole movie is visually BEAUTIFUL! I enjoyed the movie but I would say rent it just to see how gorgeous it was - the cakes, pastries, clothes, etc.

it's funny how much i notice that kind of thing now in movies. the other day, i was cleaning, and just wanted some background noise, from a movie i'd already seen...no excuses to get out of the housework that way! anyway, "the perfect man" with heather locklear and hillary duff was on, and i remembered that she did cakes...they did quick shots of a few really pretty ones...the most notable ones being the whimsical one and then the one she won the contest with at the end.
the early bird may get the worm, indeed, but the second mouse is the one who gets the cheese!

If you ever end up in Paris, you MUST visit La Duree on the Champs Elysee (sp?)

The store itself is GORGEOUS! It is like being in a Tiffany window or a jewelry box. The pastries are so far over the top. Even their boxes are gorgeous! I took a picture of everything that I bought there. I will see if I can find my pics. Even their windows were a sugar rush.

jhomik - you've been there??? If I am ever in France, that is going to be at the top of my list. Eiffel Tower? Notre Dame? Forget those - there is a famous patisserie to visit!!

I have! I spent 4 weeks in France last year, topped by a week in Paris and ate so much pastry, I almost fainted. Thank god you walk everywhere there! I actually LOST weight! It was shocking!

La Duree is really the best, in terms of pastry, and the shop itself. It is turn of the 18/19th century over the top gorgeous.

I am going to go try to find those pics right now...

Give me a minute...

Speaking of cakes in movies, 'The Great New Wonderful' with Maggie Gyllenhaal, she is a upscale cake decorator. The movie itself is pretty forgettable but I loved the cake scenes and where she is pitching to the rich spoilt teenager.
Back to your original topic!
Here's a couple more pics for you:

I keep 2 books for brides to browse thru . One is a book of cakes I've made andthe other are pics from magz's and the internet. I have one section in the 2nd book of Hollywood Wedding cakes, including TOm Cruise and (the redhead woman on Desperate Housewives). Brides enjoy seeing these! I may have to add a "movie cakes" section!

How do you get photos of the cakes in the first place? I think being in the UK I miss out on 'celebrity' cakes. Could you post them here or did you get them from a magazine?
