Alexa here. I knew early on that my annual Oscar pig-out this year would feature the pastry at the center of Wes Anderson's latest. Not only because it was probably my favorite film this year, but because Wes kindly supplied detailed instructions for making the Courtesan au Chocolat. A literal invitation to create my own Wes Anderson diorama! I had to try.
It was all fun and games until the assembly, when the mini towers toppled like dominoes. Damn you, Wes!
