Fabu Food Favor: Strawberry and Vanilla Cream Macarons



I’m so inspired by good food… and pretty pictures. Especially pretty pictures of good food. I stumbled upon this gorgeous foodie blog today. The author made strawberry and vanilla bean macarons.

The little meringue pastries were filled with a home-made strawberry pate de fruit and white chocolate & vanilla bean cream. Um…really? She just “whipped” these together for her camping trip. What? I love (read: am jealous of) amazing/talented people such as Aran!!



Anyway, I previously mentioned my dreams of having Laduree macaron favors (they come in such cool, novel flavors!) at our wedding… if only they delivered to the U.S. But now I’m thinking, Who needs you Laduree, I have this neat recipe

It would be really great to have some homemade food to gift… given that I’m all like, “Hey I’m a foodie, y’all. Love me.” Problem is, I can’t bake. So, we’ll see if I’ll be able to pull it off. I will try this recipe and test my skills and this cookie’s shelf-life/freezablility.

(I think I need to go drink some hot cocoa and read a book to ease my giddiness now.)

Are you baking/cooking any homemade favors for your guests? If so, what? (And of course, we love recipes!)

    I don’t know if this recipe has been posted anywhere but maybe it could be of help to all you Laduree fans out there =).

    I’ll be an echo – macarons are very difficult to make WELL. Also, even if you start practicing now, there’s one thing that you can’t control when it comes time to making them for the wedding – humidity. High humidity will kill macarons.

    That being said, I’m an experienced baker, and while I would have loved to have made my own wedding cake, it’s just a really bad idea, so I’m having a pro make it (although the cost of it kills me when I know I could make the same thing…) and I’m making a late night dessert bar — 2 flavors each of marshmallows, meringues, macarons, berry & cream tartlets, and 3 flavors of mini cupcakes. It’s going to be a good amount of work, but I’m so excited to be able to share my baking with all of our guests!

    And to be a shameless self-promoter, here’s my food blog – raspberryeggplant.blogspot.com :)
