In addition to their usual 10 to 12 flavours of French macarons, the team of bakers at French Made Baking is cooking up special treats to say “Je t’aime” to your loved ones.
Back by popular demand are the heart shaped pink macarons flavoured with rose and litchi ganache. Available in limited quantities in the store (February 5 to 14) and at Nat Bailey Stadium Farmers’ Market (February 9 only) they may be purchased individually ($1.75 including tax), in boxes of 2 ($4.25), 6 ($10) or 12 ($19).
The Yspahan is a great dessert to end a romantic dinner on a sweet note with style! This large macaron is filled with fresh raspberries, a litchi and rose with litchi buttercream; great size for sharing, ($5.25).
For those who want to impress their sweetheart by cooking themselves a romantic dinner, why not get a profiteroles kit for 2? French Made Baking’s kit comes with 4 choux, a rich chocolate sauce and roasted sliced almonds. All you need to do is cut the choux in half, fill with ice cream and close, heat up the chocolate sauce and pour it on the choux, sprinkle with almonds and voilà! a delicious (almost) homemade dessert! ($4 tax included)
For limited edition macarons and Yspahan, it is recommended to pre-order.
