It’s the most wonderful time of the year—the beginning of Cupcake Week 2014. Since 2010, I’ll been treating myself to a cupcake (or a variation of, when I’ve found myself in a cupcake-less situation) every day during my birthday week*.
I had a lovely dinner with some of my best friends this past Saturday night and was happy to receive some delicious macarons (not to be confused with macaroons) from my friend Alex. I figured these would be a good treat for today because it’s like a French version of the cupcake. Also, they’re smaller than a cupcake, so you can eat more of them, right?!
As for flavor, there anen’t any complaints here! These dainty little snacks from Bakeshop are sweet and tasty with a nice texture—the delicate, crumbly cookie pair nicely with the smooth frosting. I’m also loving the variety of flavors, like Pistachio, Strawberries and Cream and Funfetti.
* Technically, though my birthday IS a week from today, my birthday week is next week, but we’ll be at the beach then and I’m not sure what the cupcake situation is down in the Outer Banks.
