Macarons!

gif animator
Needless to say, this selection of Macarons that I brought back from this trip did not last long. I have tried many of the flavours and I can now narrow them down to my favourite three - caramel with salted butter, rose and pistacchio (also with raspberry here). Which are your favourites?

  6. Hahaha, love the picture! I'm definitely not the sort of person for macaroons, I'd much prefer a huge stack of chocolate :/

  8. I always thought that the macarons I prefer the way they look than for its taste. But in any case, my favorites are the chocolate with almonds. Oh! But they are so pretty...... Love its colors!

  32. love the funny moving image. and of course macarons, too, but in germany it's hard to find them. so it's always a little celebration when i get some.

  34. Since few weeks I gave myself the mission to test all the flavours sold in my town. The is no Ladurée shop, but anyway there are great pastry shops.
    I've tested chocolate with liquor, but I've founded it not so good.
    I prefer fruit flavours, even if white chocolate is good too.
