Perfect combination for after lunch treats at polo I'd say!
So my first experience with a macaron was the flavour of Lemon and Basil. And it was magnificent! I can now understand why some people claim that macarons are the new cupcake. I say - Why not have both!
In a post by over at Adventures of a Wandering Nyonya which I found while googling 'cupcakes and macarons' (I know how very Confessions of a Shopaholic of me?)
So there you have it! You read it here first. I ate a macaron, at the Polo on a sunny winter's day in 2010.
I have to admit I am more fascinated by the way they look and I love their diverse fillings and somehow they don’t feel as heavy as your regular cupcake. I guess it does depend on what craving you are trying to fulfill. They are made of sugar, egg whites and finely ground almonds and you can add a variety of flavours and colours to them. As for the filling, any combination you can think of , I supposed goes!
Would love to hear what everyone else thinks about this? Is the macaron the new cupcake? I am including them in a little dessert table I am creating for next month, but of course there will be cupcakes. Lemon and cream cheese cupcakes to be exact!
