'Lette Macarons: Beyond Birthday Cake


Move over cupcakes and make room for the latest indulgence, french macarons. These petite, savory and colorful meringue sandwiches with cream filled centers literally melt in your mouth for a most satisfying treat which doesn't leave you guilt ridden.  These are not easy sweets to make at home but 'Lette, which has a flagship store right here in Beverly Hills, has the process down to a science so you don't have to.  Handmade daily, these delicacies can be packaged for a unique gift, boxed as a set of two for a wedding favor or made into a tiered tower for any holiday celebration.  


Being small, delicious and gluten free they're also perfect for parties.  Make them into a lollipop display and have kids take one as a favor or bring in some knick knacks and have the shop decorate a tower for you at no extra charge.  Flavors, which change seasonally, include salted caramel, madagascar vanilla and passion fruit but my kids favored the caribbean chocolate.
