Bellefleur by Beatrix

 French Macarons are now one of the best desserts in our country today. I'm always on Instagram and if you guys are following bloggers, you surely know that these are common to them. Though the price is quite expensive, the taste is delectable and you'll surely ask for more!

A macaron is a sweet meringue-based confectionery made with egg whites, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder or ground almond, and food colouring. The macaron is commonly filled with ganache, buttercream or jam filling sandwiched between two cookies. Its name is derived from the Italian word maccarone or maccherone.

Macarons in Japan are a popular confection known as "makaron". There is also a version of the same name which substitutes peanut flour for almond and is flavored in wagashi style, widely available in Japan.

In Paris, the Ladurée chain of pastry shops has been known for its macarons for about 150 years. In France, McDonald's sells macarons in their McCafés (sometimes using advertising that likens the shape of a macaron to that of a hamburger). McCafé macarons are produced by Château Blanc, which, like Ladurée, is a subsidiary of Groupe Holder, though they do not use the same macaron recipe.
 In the Philippines, you'll see macarons in malls, online shops and boutiques. While everyone is ranting about these, I know you'd love to try the delectable ones with good variety of flavors. I remember last November 2012, Kev and I were planning Katy's birthday. Of course, you need a unique giveaway which why I chose macaron for the big event! 
And so, I had a last minute with these macarons with only plastics but I bought the wrong one. The plastic is too light and not a good one for the macarons. Good thing I bought plastic cups at Divisoria and "post it" in different colors. So this one's the output, what do you think? :)

 With eye candy colored macarons in different flavors, I know you're now in love with Bellefleur by Beatrix! Our guests loved it, indeed! Kev and I couldn't stop to grab one when we headed home from the owner's house for pick up!
