Oh sweet Macarons

The Patisserie and bread-making scene has picked up greatly here in the past few years, much to our taste buds and appetites’ delight. Thanks to places like Vovotelo, Dresden Bakery, Cobblestones etc we’re able to once again – since our trip to Europe, or the enlightened bakeries in the big cities of SA – dine on those delicious aromas, textures and tastes!

Now after many attempts at recreating it’s shape, texture and sweetness, Ginger Pops in Port Elizabeth will be selling the widely loved and lovingly devoured, French Macaron! With it’s beautiful variety of colours, flavours and fillings, these little treats are perfect on wedding tables, will brighten up party favours and dessert buffets, they’re delicious gifts for fellow sweet appreciators, and of course, a great treat to spoil yourself ¬†with!

Last year I made him a Dragon cake, this year I made him this :

Cupcakes and cake were made with dark chocolate cake layered with peanutbutter cream!
