I have never had macarons before and I have always seen tons of pictures off of other foodies blogs that I had to make it a mission to find some. I happened to find some at Cake City which was right across from my work so I hopped on by to grab some. I ended up taking home about a dozen which I never finished and it ended up being spoiled in the car.. I haven't had any cake from Cake City but the macarons were pretty good. Coffee (brown), Raspberry (hot pink), Cosmopolitan Cocktail (light pink), Margarita (bright green), "something" Cream (offwhite) [i don't remember the name but it has a vanilla yet nutty taste to it]. My favorite would have to be the cream one, the fruity flavors weren't fooling me and so I had to pass on those. These macarons were way way too sweet for me. If they were toned down I would buy more but I think I had enough of these.
They were just the way I would imagine them to taste and feel. Crisp and crunchy on the outside, soft and moist in the inside and a sweet cream that kept the two pieces together.
