Pastry help needed


i am looking for a specific patisserie that i ate when i was younger. i am 35 so not that long but i've only ever seen it in the east part of Montreal.

I don't know the name of it, but here is a description:
almond tartelette base with the jam in the middle, over it a super fluffy white butter cream in some animal shape, usually frog, pig, mouse. the whole thing draped in a royal icing that hardens into a shell, decorated with piped icing for eyes and details.

Is there any place i can find this again? i have been away in the US for a long time and miss it terribly, want some as soon as the plane touches down.

If you know the name of it as well, that would be helpful.

Merci beaucoup.

  1. I saw these almond animal tarts in patisserie/cafe this evening, the one located in pepsi forum (atwater metro stop) next to liquor store (SAQ), they had frogs, pigs and ducks. I dont think I have ever tried one and its been awhile since i noticed them in pastry shops. This pastry store is open very late and easy to get to.
