A Wedding Blog for Stylish Brides in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario
The pretty french macaron is among the most wonderful among Parisien delights and a wedding favor that is sure to delight your wedding guests. However, the making of these decadent desserts is no small task and not to be undertaken by your weekend baker.
I have literally tried nearly every commercial macaron available in Ottawa-Gatineau and the little known L’Instant Gourmand wins the prize for the most perfect Parisien macaron. With a perfectly light and crisp exterior that caves easily as you bite into a substantial cream centre…perfection. The macaron should not be dense, but light and crispy. The centre should be light an airy but substantial and creamy and the flavors and colours should be light and not overpowering. My absolute favorite…salted caramel..swoon!
These lovely treats can be incorporated into your decor as place settings, or as a compliment to a dessert table or beautifully packaged as a wedding favor. You can expect to pay between $2.50 to $3.00 per macaron in the Ottawa area.
