Macarons VS Cupcakes

Cupcakes -

1, 2 & 3

Is it possible to beat a miniature cake with delicate decorations? Until recently, cupcakes enjoyed an unchallenged reign as most trendy sweet treat.
They can be individually boxed as favors that you can personalize with icing and decorations relating to your theme, or you could create a cupcake bar with multiple flavors. It would be a lot of fun to supply a variety of butter creams and have guests decorate their own dessert!
Check out the divine Cupcake Parlour of Christchurch, Tempt of Wellington and Bella cupcakes of Auckland.

Macarons are huge! Some would say they are the new cupcake. (Although I still love cupcakes best...maybe) Imagine a towering pile of pastel deliciousness on your dessert table. I love the tri- coloured favors pictured above stylishly displayed in the cellophane packaging.
J'amie Les macarons of Christchurch...yes! she's local!!...offers a few ideas on her website.
Her beautiful macarons can be custom coloured and flavored to suit your theme. Alternatively try Macherie of Auckland .

I've made my argument for both of my favorite treats. I'll let you decide for yourself which decadent delight you prefer! L xx
