Currently Obsessed with…Macarons

Raspberry, Pistachio, and Caramel Macarons

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of sweets. A big fan, actually. Evidence here, here, and hereBut there is one dessert that I am slightly more obsessed with than normal, at the moment. Macarons!

It has to be one of the most photographable treats on the planet. Am I right?

So instead of putting together a tutorial for these little guys (I had planned to paint them with the same edible paint that I made for the watermelon donuts), I thought I would just style a few photos instead…

:O I am making these immediately! If I actually LEARNED how to make them by myself I’d save sooo much money, haha!

I hear that, Marlen. I would love to start making my own as well. But for now, they’re easy to buy from someone who knows what they’re doing. 🙂


It looks delicious!


They were! So delicious. I ate all of them over the weekend.


I love macarons! They’re so accessible in NYC that I’m taking full advantage of it! Did you make the ones shown in this post?


No – I didn’t make these, Jessica. But I’d love to learn how…I would totally take a macaron class if anyone knows of one.


Great post and pictures – I’m hungry for a macaroon now too! Abi 🙂

Thanks Abi. 🙂


I am right there with you on macarons. There is a bakery nearby that sells vanilla sage macarons and I am head over heels for them. SO GOOD!


Vanilla sage? That sounds delicious, Katie.


These look amazing! Definitely on my to-try list!

Lexi @ Glitter, Inc.

Definitely give ’em a try, Lexi!


These look delicious! But now I have to wait until market day tomorrow to go and buy some now that I’ve got them in my mind… Mmmm, macarons.

Thanks Elly. Hope you find some at the market, when you go.


Such beautiful photography Brittni! And quite possibly the best (and tastiest!) tax deduction ever!

Haha. I hadn’t thought of it that way, but you are so right. Best tax deduction, for sure.


Who isn’t obsessed with macarons? I wish I had a local place that sold them!

Right? Hard not to get obsessed.


Oh you! Thank you so much for including me in your roundup. I love you! And I love all the other macaron projects you included here! I’m currently working on another mac project. Isn’t it great when we can eat our work?!?!

Can’t wait to see your next macaron project Lex! That typography one was amazing!


I love macarons! I actually bought a set to prepare them because I’m a huge baking fan and I always make cupcakes and decorated cakes for everyone. So I thought I’ll try out to make some macarons. I just tried it once and they turned out.. well.. not really good 😀 They were delicious but the texture and de apperience was quite different than the original ones. I should really try it again. Thanks for remembering me! 😀


Ah macaroons! I am an experienced baker and I am yet to make them….One of these days!!!
Now, I’ll just drool over the laptop for a minute….


Yes, macarons is like obsession. After one it`s not possible to stop. Very tasty pics 🙂


It’s really awful hard to make them! Had my first attempt the other day, miserably failed 🙁
