MOO welcomes Dominique Ansel to London

This autumn, London was gripped by sweet-treat fever as Dominique Ansel, creator of the Cronut®, opened his first bakery this side of the Atlantic. We were delighted to have the opportunity to support his launch with some very British, oh-so-MOO printed Postcards. Just the thing to set off a morning sugar rush. Here’s a peek behind the scenes on launch day (for those who didn’t join the queue).

We created a set of Postcards (including a limited-edition letterpress set) and etiquette cards to mark the launch, featuring some of Dominique’s most queued-for goods. And, of course, we might have tried a few of them ourselves too (never say no to another round of cookie shots).

On moving to the UK, Dominique’s encountered the fierce tea debate – when do you add the milk?

Cookie, chocolate and vanilla-infused milk? It’s like all your bottom-of-the-ice-cream-cone dreams came true.

The full set of Postcards: a limited-edition letterpress versions was available to those who were quick off the mark – a reminder of the day that’ll last you longer than that DKA.

When it comes to afternoon tea, we’re here to make sure you’re on top of the etiquette.

Fancy a mini-me? These little crunchy meringues have won over hearts, minds and mouths on two separate continents.

In town? Pop by Elizabeth Street, Belgravia (it’s a short trot from Victoria station) and try Dominique’s creations for yourself – and keep an eye out for our Postcards too.
