flurr friday: macarons

ya’ll, i love me some macarons. sweet, sweet french macarons:

(i don’t think i’ve written this yet, but all pictures are by me unless otherwise stated)

(…that macaron kind of looks like a mushroomy blob. poor thing)


from what the blogosphere tells me, macarons have become incredibly popular to have at weddings. the last few that i’ve been to have attested to that. considering that i will be getting married next spring, you’d figure that if i love them so much that i would have them at my wedding too.


why? one reason is that macarons are difficult to not squish. even if i can find some place in hawaii that makes them, i’ve then got to figure out how to get them to the ranch that i’m having the wedding at without crushing their oh-so-delicate wafers. also, they’re pricier than say, a pie. i mean, not so pricey that i won’t grab a handful every time i go grocery shopping in little tokyo and walk by paulette’s (ahem), but enough macarons for a wedding? budget wedding =/= macarons. gotta cut back somewhere, right? besides, since i probably won’t be able to stand there and force everyone to try one so they can experience the awesomeness that is a macaron, some of our guests might think they’re crazy alien cookies and want to stick to cake or pie instead anyway and then all those precious little macarons would go to waste…WOE!

so while i’m a bit sad that i won’t be sharing macarons at my wedding, i’ll happily satisfy my cravings by gobbling some down daintily nibbling on some from time to time.

does anybody else love macarons? their awesome fluffy/chewy/creamy texture, their cute happy colors, their tasty random flavors?

p.s. these macarons are not to be confused with coconut macaroons… not too keen on those ;)
