The ingredients are simple, but the result is extraordinary. Macarons (pronounced de-lish-us) are a meringue-based French confectionery classic, comprised of almond powder, sugar, eggs and food coloring. Sometimes they have flavors added, sometimes they don’t, but there’s nary a time that they cease to amaze.
Macarons are so good, in fact, that there is an entire museum dedicated to them. The museum, Musée de l’Amande et du Macaron (also known as The Almond and Macaron Museum), is in Montmorillon, a small French town that has made its macarons with the same recipe for over 150 years. A century-and-a-half of the same recipe? You know those are some tasty treats.
You know what they say, though: a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips. So what’s a sugar-fiend to do? We’ve got just the solution for you. Turn your fixation with these crazy-colored confections into art.
Take these sweet treats and hang them high. Turn your apartment into a shrine to the glorious macaron. While all the prints are calorie-free, we don’t recommend eating them. These beauties are best seen and not tasted.
