My 16th birthday cake (also where to find amazing bakeries in Paris)

Rue de Martyrs apple tart

Depending on where you stay in Paris it can be quite hard to find a good patisserie, particularly if you are hanging out near the tourist attractions. So my gift to you is a street of treats, Rue de Martyrs. It is a few minutes away from the flat white I mentioned earlier, and walking distance from Montmartre/Sacre Coeur.

There are about six magic bakeries/patisserie on Rue de Martyrs and *cough* I have tried a few. My favourite treat for this trip was the apple tart pictured above, simple and tasty.

For me it was also a bit of a walk down memory lane – I purchased the aforementioned tart from the same shop that I got the birthday cake for my sixteenth birthday. A lovely walk down a memory lane full of sleeping on the floor, a romantic trip to a château, almost missing trains, accidental watermelon purchases, thunder storms and of course a beautiful cake.
