We were recently given the chance to create some bespoke macarons for Chambord. The task we were given was to not only make macarons flavoured with the iconic black raspberry liqueur, but also to make the macarons resemble the elegant Chambord bottle.
Armed with a bakery full of ingredients, our head chef, Audrey, sought to make these bespoke macarons to perfection. After trying out various recipes, she created an irresistibly decadent black raspberry liqueur and dark chocolate ganache. This rich ganache was then delicately piped into deep raspberry coloured shells, topped with carefully applied gold leaf stripes.
Our team loves getting creative with our macarons, so if you have an idea for something bespoke please do not hesitate to ask. We not only create bespoke flavours, but also bespoke colours and unique styling or decoration. Also, be sure to check out our personalised macarons which can be topped with an image, logo and/or text of your choice!
During the time we have spent baking and selling macarons, we have noticed that it is a common theme for children (and some adults) to describe a macaron as a biscuit that looks like a tiny hamburger. While macarons are actually cakes and not biscuits, (due to the various qualities of the confection, see: Jaffa Cake Case), we do agree that they resemble our favourite meaty comfort food, the hamburger!
'Bespoke' is one of those words that pops up a lot in our line of work. In fact, pretty much every order we bake has bespoke touches; whether that is bespoke flavours, made to match colours, custom messages or, of course, Personalised Macarons.
