Do you want to build a macarons tower?

Dec 13, 2018 | Social Event

For those who may not know it, Erwan Bouat, our strong number 8, is also the head pastry chef at LADURÉE in Japan.

A month ago, he built a 5.3m high Tokyo Tower made of 8,000 macarons, which was exhibited in the Intercontinental ANA Hotel lobby (Tamakei Sanno). This masterpiece took them 30 hours of hard work, and 6 hours to mount the piece.


This could have been a simple story but during the Bledisloe Cup (the test match between New Zealand and Australia in Yokohama), the officials that were staying at the hotel came back with a few glasses too many, and thought it would be a good idea to tackle the tower that was almost finished, because… why not?


We all know what happens when rugby players have such good ideas, but even though the disaster seemed inevitable, Erwan intervened and saved the day, as he always does. Good for him and for the lucky ones who could admire this beautiful piece.

Enjoy rugby, chocolate, and don’t forget to drink responsibly, or Erwan will get you.
