Macaron: What’s in it anyways?

La Patisserie

Macaroon, macaron, and macarena. What’s the difference? What’s in a macaron? How many macaroons can I shove in my mouth while doing the macarena anyways? Let’s ask La Patisserie owner and confections collector, Caroline Apollo.

First of all, the macaron and macaroon look nothing a like. A macaron looks more like an elegant cookie sandwich and a macaroon appears more like a cookie drop. The macaron is very colorful and can be found at weddings, showers, and tea parties. It is made with ingredients such as almond flour and can be filled with ganache. You’ll find macarons in a large variety of flavors. The macaroon on the other hand is made of coconut and contains no flour. The macaroon is often dipped in chocolate. You could prepare this treat in a few minutes, while the macaron will take hours.

I don’t believe that either of these two confections have anything to do with the song Macarena by Los del Rio. But you might find yourself dancing the steps and singing the song while enjoying either one!

As a patisserie business owner I chose to wear this outfit from Neve by ColdLogic. Each piece is color change by hud. The top has a choice of 6 colors, the skirt has 4, and there are 6 belt choices. In addition you can turn shine on or off. Each piece can also be turned off (transparent). To add even more versatility, the outfit is made for the standard avatar, Slink Physique and Hourglass, Belleza Freya and Isis, and Maitreya Lara. I was able to pick up this cute hairstyle from Oleander for FLF. The Jem Heels from Ingenue comes in 12 colors and fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink feet.
