Following this theme, we created some burger-inspired macarons for National Burger Day. National Burger Day was celebrated throughout the UK, on the 27th of August 2014, with great offers on burgers and plenty of Burger Facts being passed around.
While we can, by no means, claim to be the first ones to create "Macaron Burgers," as evidenced by a google image search of "Burger Macaron" along with these advertisements by McDonald's France, we do think ours look pretty darn cute!
And, beyond the cute façade lies a very well thought out recipe combining rich dark chocolate ganache (as the meat patty), subtle vanilla buttercream (as the mayonaise) and fresh apple slivers (as the beetroot coleslaw topping).
If you have your own idea for some bespoke styled macarons, please get in touch with us. We always enjoy a challenge and find much pleasure in creating macarons that are both tasty and aesthetically pleasing.
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.
The Royal Academy of Arts held their annual Summer Ball on the 23rd of June, 2014. Within a venue filled with fabulous artwork, the stage was set for a glamorous fund raising event. Decked out in punchy fuchsias and towering pink floral displays the Royal Academy treated their benefactors and donors to a very stylish evening filled with food, dancing, entertainment, fine art and a silent auction.
We are proud to have been able to contribute to the array of fine food offered to the Summer Ball guests, by providing the Royal Academy with 2,000 macarons. To match the ball's beautiful and bold pink colour scheme, we created macarons in fuchsia, rose and pale pink. Each colour was a different flavour; the fuchsia macarons were filled with our classic raspberry and white chocolate ganache, the rose coloured macarons were filled with raspberry and rose butter cream and the pale pink macarons were filled with apple butter cream with a raspberry burst in the centre. Each flavour tasted fantastic on it's own or paired with the champagne and wines provided by Louis Roederer.
