Watch out cupcakes, you've got some competition.
Macarons -- a popular dessert choice at weddings these days, and it's no surprise. Small, delicious, and classy (if I say so myself), and they come in a variety of colors and flavors, a definite plus for brides who want their desserts to reflect their color theme.
Not to be confused with macaroons (also known as coconut macaroons), french macarons are made with egg whites, powdered sugar, granulated sugar, and finely grated almonds, and commonly filled with jam or buttercream. Characterized by their "dome-shape", these desserts have a soft, moist texture. They have a flat bottom with a crinkly ring called a "foot". There are a few ways you can incorporate these beauties into your wedding --

Alright, now I'm hungry/want to find myself some macarons. Until next time...
