Planning French themed birthday, need help with the desserts!!!

So I saw a recipe for the homemade truffles it seems simple enough for me not to destroy. I just really want a table with beautiful pastries on it bc she loves that scene in Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette. So I figured I can try to recreate that.

Dominique Ansel looks good but their stuff seems a bit pricey to me. La bergamote seems more reasonable

Where can I find a Bear Claw in Manhattan?

I love bear claws too and u really cannot find them easily in NYC. The only place where I was able to find them was at Panera Bread.

Planning French themed birthday, need help with the desserts!!!

Hi everybody, I am planning a French themed birthday party for my 13 year old sister. I want to have a dessert table with macarons and other French pastries, but I am having trouble making decisions. I know that the general consensus is that laduree has the best macarons but I looked at the flavors and know she won't like them she would enjoy more flavors like nutella, s'mores, pb & j. Does any body know what place in NYC has flavors like those and still taste good? Also I want to get pastries from financier. Can anybody tell me if they taste as good as they look. Also which ones to buy, she loves chocolate and almond anything, but she hates coffee and anything custardlike.

Thanks everyone.

christmas star cookies

There are these cookies that me and my friend love they are star shaped chocolate covered grahams with the white sprinkles on top ( the sprinkles are like those nonpareils sprinkles). I never see them anymore and I want to buy my friend some for christmas. Does anybody know any stores in the city where i can get these cookies from, or maybe a website I can order them from.

My sister's birthday is coming up and she wants cupcakes instead of a cake, where is a good place to get them from in new york city. Please do not say magnolia because I don't think she would like frosted cornbread. Also I called two little red hens and I refuse to pay 80 bucks for 30 cupcakes. But any other suggestions are welcomed :)
