When it comes to weddings you usually think cake, but many couples have been switching things up and incorporating macarons into their special day. These delicate French treats can be a great addition to not just weddings, but also to a wide variety of events like engagement parties and birthdays.
Macarons are excellent for events because of the vast possibilities in not only flavor but also in presentation. Here are some of our favorite macaron dessert ideas for your next wedding or event.
