The Muses are in a daydreamy kind of mood these days. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s summer and life on campus is a bit dead for the WCM. Maybe it’s the heat getting to the ECM’s head, despite the fact that this weather is her natural habitat and she should be OK with a forecast calling for “oppressive” heat and humidity. Regardless, the Muses are daydreaming....and what else would they dream about but desserts? Duh.

During an email correspondence related to opening up a pastry shop, the Muses debated what kind of shop they would want. WCM suggested to ECM that perhaps she should have a shop like the beloved Miette.

Admit it – you had a smile on your face while watching that video. How could you not?

But if we’re honest with ourselves, we know that this bakery is really the stuff that the WCM’s dreams are made of. She would want a calm space, walls covered with thick grey and white stripes, each pastry made with complete perfection, and Coralie Clément playing in the background.

But the ECM says - why have that, when you could have THIS instead?!

Yes, we all know that the ECM is a big kid in a small adult’s body. What she really wants is a rockin’ bakery with rule-breaking desserts, spontaneous dance parties, and hand-written signs.

Sigh. Girls can dream, can’t they?

  1. my (ECM) husband wants me to make it clear that while in my head I envision myself having a rockin' bakery with no rules, I'm much more fussy, sophisticated and OCD than that. Perhaps one day East Coast can meet West Coast and the Muses will have a Miette-like bakery together!
    Daydreamin' for sure.
