It'd be an ultimate betrayal to my theme 'Springtime in Paris' and my love for all things French to not have these beautiful little pieces of frivolous joy grace my tables.
After an extensive search I managed to compile a list of macaroon makers in the city
1. Sunny Yaw of Big Boys Oven
2. Dish @ Dua Annexe: 211 Jalan Tun Razak, KL Tel: +603-21641286
3. Yossi of Lolita's Daughter
6. That's it really. Pray pray tell if you know more so I can extend the list.
At first I thought I'd serve a macaroon to each guest and make them function as namecard holders. But this would mean shelling out a minimum of RM2.00++ per macaroon multiply by my 250 guests would total: RM500 which *sigh* as a kiamsiap Malaysian is a hard sum to stomach considering alot of my guests probably have zero idea of the magic of that ganache-filled shells.
Then I figured I'd serve afew at my guest-receiving reception table on a first-come-first-serve basis but then it would be unfair to just serve afew.
Then I thought of cakes. Like this:
Edible Mini Macaron Towers by Sunny Yaw
But it brought us back to the budget dilemma. And then I found these:
Non-Edible Point a la Ligne Macaroon Pyramid candle
Candles are fantastic ços after you're done with them as wedding deco you can bring them home to sugar up your kitchen counter or use them as sweet saviours during blackouts. Unfortunately the online store did not stock them anymore.
And then (after an extensive search quest) I stumbled upon these:
Also non-edible Kc SoapsNMore Goat's Milk Soap with Black Raspberry + Vanilla Scent on Etsy
Awfully cute and make brilliant after-wedding gifts for my bridesmaids but US$4.50 per macaroon is, again, not purse friendly.
Hmm... any other macaroon ideas I can use?
