Foodspotting Friday: The Glorious Macaron

Need dessert inspiration? Feed your sweet tooth craving with macarons.

If you hadn’t noticed, macarons are the dessert du jour, and with good reason. They’re colorful, petite, French, and unlike cupcakes, classy. Yeah, I said it.

If it’s apricot and blackberry, mocha or caramel fleur de sel, the hundreds – ok, maybe even thousands – of flavors, means there’s one for everyone. So for today’s Foodspotting Friday, here’s to sweet, multicolored inspiration.
