Rubik's Cube Cake at Le Meurice, ParisThere's a slew of exciting new patisseries in Paris (see our article in the May issue of Luxury Travel Advisor for a run-down of éclair specialty shops). It seems that every day we're discovering a delightful new boutique to sample sugary treats.

In sweet news from Le Meurice, new pastry chef Cédric Grolet has taken the reins at the Dorchester Collection's palace hotel on Rue de Rivoli. The 27-year-old helms a team of 18 pâtissiers who make gorgeous creations-- classic French pastries with a modern twist.
