I love a good collab, especially if it’s as cute as Donna Wilson-for-Rococo. Taking Wilson’s established style of hand-drawn characters (loyal readers of this here blog will already know I’m a huge fan of Edward Lear’s poem, and Wilson’s homage-paying cushions), Rococo Chocolates is definitely the place to hit up for gifts come Easter. And when I say gifts, I mean, gifts for me. If I don’t get my hands on a box of Owl and the Pussycat chocolates (£13.95), I’ll be sulking until next April, I swear.
Joining their feathery and furry friends are £9.95 boxes with one hand-painted egg in a bone china eggcup; a 70g rabbit egg with three ganaches for £17.50; a 160g chick egg filled with six ganaches and two chocolate squares for £25; a 220g lamb egg with 10 mixed chocolates and three chocolate squares for £35, and finally, a Matryoshka doll-style egg which sees a carrot egg swallowed by a rabbit, swallowed by a fox, for £55.
The boxes are available to pre-order on Donna Wilson’s website now, so hop to it if you want to guarantee your order arrives before Easter. And when I say “your,” I of course mean, “mine.”
