Aux Merveilleux de Fred is such a beautiful cake shop. Giving off romantic and luxurious vibes. I visited the Clapham cafe in London. Where a stunning. Giant chandelier hangs from the ceiling of Aux Merveilleux de Fred. Whilst the cosy, French native patisserie has beautiful treats on display. Known by their French title "Merveilleux". Along with sandwiches and "cramiques" to purchase. Cramiques are sweet pastries. The pastries at Aux Merveilleux de fred come in individual and large sizes. With chocolate chip. Raisin. Plain and sugar cramiques to choose from.

The stars of the show however, are the merveilleux. Of which there are six different flavours to choose from. At Aux Merveilleux de Fred. All six merveilleux look and sound so delicious. I couldn't wait to try all six mini merveilleux meringues.

Aux Merveilleux de fred Clapham branch is on a bustling London street. Perfect for people watching. On a sunny day you can sit outside at Aux Merveilleux de Fred. Or relax in store where a couple of plush, padded seats await you.

Aux Merveilleux de Fred Meringues

I received friendly service from the waitress at Aux Mervellieux de Fred, who was kind enough to make me a mocha. Even though it wasn't on the menu. The drinks menu at Aux Merveilleux de Fred includes Coffee, teas and cold beverages.

It's worth noting that an extra 20% vat is added to your bill at Aux Merveilleux de Fred, should you choose to sit in. I ordered a chocolate chip cramique to enjoy with my mocha at Aux Merveilleux de Fred. The cramiques at Aux Merveilleux de Fred look really tasty. However, the chocolate chip cramique was just ok in terms of flavour. Yet perfect for its soft consistency and dough freshness.

The merveilleux more than made my day, and though I'm not usually much of a meringue fan. The delicious merveilleux meringue cakes at aux merveilleux de Fred are nothing short of amazing. If somebody gets me a merveilleux when I'm feeling down, that would certainly cheer me up! You can choose to have your merveilleux stored in either a regular box or gift box.

Each merveilleux is wonderfully light. With a slight fizz to the perfectly crunchy meringue. Each merveilleux has the most perfect amount of sweetness. Whilst layers of whipped cream hide inside a merveilleux de Fred meringue. The mini meringues are round treats which resemble Ferraro Roche.

The waitress at Aux Merveilleux de Fred was very helpful. Letting me know that the merveilleux need to be kept in the fridge, and can last for about two days. With the larger merveilleux cakes she recommended taking it out of the fridge for twenty minutes before serving.

Chocolate is my absolute favourite merveilleux. With dark chocolate shavings on the outside of the meringue and a chocolate cream filling. The Merveilleux is so creamy and chocolatey. The chocolate shavings taste like a perfect milk chocolate. Not dark. However, I love, and recommend all flavours of Aux Merveilleux de Fred meringue.

Each merveilleux has it's own distinct taste. Thanks to a different topping, along with a different flavour of whipped cream inside each mouth watering meringue. The incroyable meringue has creamy white chocolate shavings for its outer layer. With a speculoos biscuit, whipped cream filling. The magnifique meringue is covered in almond nuts, and caramelised hazelnut pieces. With a praline whipped cream center.

The sans-culotte meringue has a caramel whipped cream center, with crystallised meringue pieces on the outside. The impensable has a coffee cream center with coffee flavour meringue pieces on its outer. Whilst the excentrique is a cherry flavoured version of the impensable. Excentrique is a pretty vibrant pink colour.

The merveilleux, incroyable and impensable, are all available in larger individual sizes. Whilst both the dark merveilleux and white incroyable chocolate meringues can be ordered in cake sizes ranging from 4 to 24 people

I'll most definitely be back to Aux Merveilleux de Fred for the larger, individual sized chocolate merveilleux, and I won't think twice about ordering a full sized merveilleux meringue cake on a special occasion!
