Macarons, macarons, macarons!

These tiny meringue-like buttons have taken the party world by storm, and Alana Marie of The Splendid Sweet Shoppe has mastered making these delicate two-bite treats to elegant perfection. Macarons are one of the few pastries that are about as temperamental as a two-year old. With only three ingredients, the making of these fine treats is all in the technique. From moisture and humidity to the mood of the baker, these cookies are difficult to make and easy to ruin. After many failed attempts and months of perfecting her technique, Alana Marie is able to produce picture-perfect macarons batch after batch.

Using a bowl passed down to her from her great-grandmother, she whips up macarons by the hundreds. Alana Marie insists the key to her perfect macarons is the fact that she grinds her own almond flour fresh for each and every batch. This extra step delivers consistent results, which is so important when you have orders ranging from 12 to 800+ macarons. Once she has achieved flawless macaron shells, complete with smooth flat tops and frilly feet, she then fills them with decadent ganaches and fresh fruit jams. The marriage between two meringue-based cookies and these divine fillings create a delicious bite of Heaven.

Perhaps one of the most captivating parts of Alana Marie's charming sweet shop is its ever-changing flavor selection that is inspired by seasons, whims, or moods. This delight-evoking component keeps customers coming back time and time again to see what new heavenly combination she has come up with. Once you visit her elegant and well-appointed virtual bakeshop and take the first bite of one of her classic or her seasonal flavors, you too will be hooked!

Pairing these indulgent cookies with exquisite packaging, The Splendid Sweet Shoppe offers an extensive selection of beautiful macaron favors. These luxurious favors convey just the right sentiments for elaborate birthday celebrations, elegant anniversary parties, whimsical bridal showers, lavish weddings, and breath-taking baptisms and christenings. Alana Marie's delectable sweets and distinguished favors are small indulgences worthy of life’s sweetest moments!
