Magical Macarons

I will admit it: I am lacking the inspiration to write something inspirational, so this time I’ll just write about… macarons!

"A macaron is a sweet confectionery. Its name is derived from an Italian word "maccarone" or "maccherone". This word is itself derived from ammaccare, meaning crush or beat, used here in reference to the almond paste which is the principal ingredient."

Since I started Lolita, I always got the idea that macarons were an absolute must. So back in Paris, I tried the macarons from McCafé. I have no idea wether or not these were good macarons, but they were absolutely de-li-ci-ous!

Macarons can have many flavours, but the most common are: strawberry, pistachio, lemon, chocolate, vanilla and caramel.
I did read somewhere that there are rose- and peachflavours too and someone made a “Bueno” style macaron. I wonder if there are any blueberry- and raspberryflavours..?
Anyway, I can really recommend people to try one (or more of course) macarons. They can be expensive, but trying doesn’t hurt right?
Now I feel like getting macarons somewhere…

How to eat a macaron


  1. I've still yet to try any~!
    They do look delicious though.

    New reader by the way.
    Your blog is really nice~!

  2. They are, really! Soft and so tasty...

    I noticed, thank you so much for following me! <3

  3. I went to Paris thinking I would háve to try them there as well, seeing as that's pretty much the mekka of macarons (hihi) but I had a strangely hard time finding any. Then back at home, I was at the V&D and guess what they had at La Place xD
