Wedding Favors Ideas from Tuscany – MACARONS


Ciao a tutti!  Today on the blog:  Perfect macarons made in Tuscany.

Where?  Poggibonsi in a very busy Cup cake studio – “Opera waiting-100% nature”, run by a couple of friends of mine, also husband and wife Gabriele Ciacci and Elisa Polvani. Together we’ve got  inspired by mainly Tuscan flavors and have created some savory and sweet macarons, using the  Italian meringue method ( of course). Here is what we came up with – some fresh ideas to help you integrate macarons in your wedding reception in Italy and more importantly,  where you actually can order these Macarons, ( and  more goodies ) made exclusively for your event in Tuscany.

Perfect and colorful  macarons  will make a  great  wedding, birthday or just because  <3  favors,   sweet macarons that we just adore are raspberry flavor, citrus flavor,  pink peppercorn  flavor, vanilla and chocolate. If you’d like to create your own flavor palette, just get in contact with me here and we’ll be happy to help you.   I also made  these small wedding favor boxes, which are quite easy to make at home with a bit of  patience and precision!
