When it comes to dessert I am definitely an expert. I’m pretty sure there isn’t one I don’t like and I got very excited when we went to Lille and bought giant meringue type delicacies from Aux Merveilleux. They reminded me of macarons but twice the size. They were also much lighter and more delicate than the macarons I’ve tried before… until now. Let me introduce you to Baked With Love.
These little treasures are made in Manchester by self taught bakers. They use natural flavours to create these beautiful macarons that are currently available in 12 flavours.
They arrived through the post without a breakage in sight and I was humbled to hear that they can be frozen. It did, however, make me laugh that Baked With Love thought I’d need to freeze them. I think I had demolished the whole box in less than 3 days!
Vibrantly coloured these French style macarons are lightly crisp on the outside with a soft and chewy shell to hold the light filling. The colours are incredibly vibrant and perfect to send either as a gift or as a favour at your wedding. My favourite flavours were cherry bakewell with a light fruit layer to give a different texture and the white chocolate and raspberry. The centre was so light and creamy I think, had the box been all this flavour, I’d have been guilty of finishing them off in one sitting.
You can order via their Facebook page or they are now available to buy from Epicerie Ludo either individually or buy the box. I’ve heard rumours of cocktail flavoured varieties… I think I’ll need to stay out of Chorlton for a while. My waistline says so…
