Pastry boutiques create special desserts for Monaco's royal wedding

In honor of the upcoming nuptials of Prince Albert of Monaco and Charlene Wittstock on July 2, two iconic French pastry houses have created special, limited-edition desserts.

Gourmet pastry boutique Ladurée launched a special box-set of eight macarons, light, airy almond meringue cookies that come in guava and raspberry-aniseed flavors.

The guava macaron is perfumed with pink guava from South Africa, while the raspberry cookie has a hint of aniseed.

The ivory and gold box set comes with eight macarons, and is engraved with the couple's first names.

It is available at all boutiques and retails for €15.60.

Specialty, gourmet food boutique Fauchon has also launched a limited edition mini éclair as a tribute to the couple, decorated after the Grimaldi coat of arms in red and white checkers.

The éclairs are made with Bourbon vanilla and Carros strawberries, flavored with a splash of rosewater.

They will make their debut July 1 and be made available exclusively at Fauchon stores in Monaco between July 2 and July 31, as well as their Paris store on 24 Place de la Madeleine between July 1 and July 2.

Each éclair will sell for €3.50.
