Imagine that? A day celebrating the delicate beauties that ‘macarons’ are?
Not that I’ve attempted them recently……but I still love ’em, with heart and soul.

In Paris, where holidays are done right, it’s Jour du Macaron, and about eight hours ago, hundreds of thousands of schoolchildren woke up singing a lovely song about pastel-colored magic then promptly flooded les rues with their best patisserie-heat-seeking game in tow.
This is a reason to believe, there’s room for everything in this world, a space, a slot, a worthy corner for cupcakes, and whoopie pies, tray bakes and macarons too!
I say ‘God created the world, But Ladurée and Pierre Hermé ‘created’ Macarons’
This crazy holiday of all holidays was created by the Yoda of the modern macaron, Pierre Hermé.

Did I say Happy Spring? Lots of beauty, sunshine and laughter….and rain to refresh things a touch!
