Better stick to what Burnaby’s Mon Paris Pâtisserie (4396 Beresford St.) is serving up – chocolate shoes.

That’s just one of the many amazing items to find after Elena Krasnova introduced an exclusive collection of desserts and confections that exemplify her classic French training, combined with her innovative style.
