I was lucky enough to be sent a delicious box of macarons from the Bute Cakery this week. Yum!
I tweeted this picture which led to lots of envious replies, including from people who’ve never tried a macaron before, but really want to. Not to be confused with macaroons (which are usually made from ground almonds and coconut) macarons are meringue-based biscuits sandwiched together with cream filling.
Bute Cakery sent me a selection of raspberry and white chocolate, vanilla and pistachio and honey macarons. Bigger than the usual mini macarons I’ve had in the past, they were crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle with delicious sweet fillings. The raspberry and white chocolate were my favourite, they were delicious without being overly sweet. Mmmmm!
I was sent the box of macarons free of charge, but this is an honest review.
