Enough with the cupcakes already. I’m pleased to announce the imminent demise of those mini-cakes with shitty frosting. So: enter the macaron. A ground almond-meringue-biscuit-buttercream-sandwich-thing. Also known as heaven. However, these are not to be confused with a macaroon (that chewy coconut thing dipped in chocolate that you get at the corner cafe).
my favourite recipe site for these lovely things is dessertsforbreakfast – but they’re so fast gaining traction that there are a million places to find interesting recipes online. Get into them fast before they’re taken over by homemade marshmallows or salty caramels (oh wait, that’s already happened).
