In French, it is pronounced macar-ohn but with a slight silent N. You can look it up if you want, the French do not pronounce it like "Macaroon". Macaroons are the coconut meringue cookies, not the pretty colorful almond meringue cookies.

Yes! Some of our previous flavours have been: spiced pumpkin for Halloween, gingerbread and peppermint chocolate for Christmas and strawberry for Summer. See what this season’s macaron is on the flavour page!

Aging egg whites mean separating the whites from the yolks, and storing the whites in an airtight container in the fridge for 1 to 2 days before using them to make macarons. Why do you need to age egg whites? “The reason behind it is to reduce the moisture content as much as possible while keeping the protein bonds from the egg whites the same,” says Hélène Dujardin. Macaron master Pierre Hermé also says that the aging process increases the whites’ elasticity. If you skip this step, you might end up with a runny or watery batter, which will not yield great results. So please age your egg whites, and take them out of the fridge a few hours before making macarons to bring them to room temperature before beating.
The ingredients of the shell are: almonds, icing sugar, caster sugar, egg whites and colouring. Inner filling varies from macaron to macaron, and recipes can change over time. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any specific dietary requirements. Some types of our macarons are gluten free and come in two lactose free varieties: raspberry and orange. Unfortunately the macarons contain almonds so not suitable for those with nut allergies.
Of course! You can either arrange to come to our shop on Grindlay Street for a tasting session, or order a box of 12 online and the cost of the macarons will be redeemable against your final wedding order.

We deliver to the whole of the UK. If you order a tower, or wedding favours in the box of 3 or bags of 2 and 3, the macarons will be supplied in protective trays of 35, and the display items sent flat packed. You will need to place the macarons onto the tower and into bags and boxes when they are delivered. Our top priority is that the macarons stay in excellent condition for your big day! We have one option for favours that come ready-packed. These are boxes of two, that come with bubble packaging to keep two macarons safe during transit. If you live within travelling distance of Edinburgh, you are more than welcome to collect and transport the macarons yourself. We use Royal Mail Special Delivery for wedding deliveries. Please get in touch for more details.

It can take up to four days after you ordered for your package to arrive, as Royal Mail can occasionally take up to 3 days to make their delivery, and it takes us one day to process your order. If your delivery still hasn’t arrived after 4 days, contact us and we will try and get to the bottom of what happened! Some things worth checking: Did you type your address in correctly? Did you miss the delivery?
Macarons aren’t exactly diet-friendly. After a quick research online, I’d estimate that one average 1¼-inch macarons contains about 200 calories. The powdered sugar is necessary to the macaron’s texture – and considering most macarons are assembled with buttercreams or fruit jams, it’s a treat you should indulge in with moderation, but savor with a slow appreciation of its texture and flavors. Indeed, you’ll never see Parisians scarfing down macarons! Don’t try to make macarons lighter; eat just one and enjoy it.

We only deliver within the United Kingdom. As our macarons are made with fresh ingredients, they probably wouldn’t withstand an international journey.
First Class Delivery costs £4.99 for Royal Mail 1st Class. Please get in touch if you are interested in Next Day Special Delivery.

Your order will come in a cardboard box, with eco-flo biodegradable filler. We occasionally re-use packing materials that we receive as well. Orders that fit in a large letter will be sent in a large envelope, for a lower shipping rate. Every effort has been made to keep the delicate macarons safe, starting from their plastic bubble packaging inside the gift box out to the loose fill material in the outer box. However, it is sometimes possible that a macaron may crumble a wee tiny bit on its journey to you.

Unfortunately we aren’t be able to create custom flavours as it takes a long time for our chefs to perfect each recipe. What we can do is match any colour shell with any existing flavour of filling so that you can have your favourite flavours whilst perfectly matching the colour scheme of your wedding. In addition to the colours you can see on our flavour page, we also offer a pearlescent finish, a gold finish and a silver finish.
