Macaron by Butterfly on a Rainbow

Busy is the only reason I have as an excuse for again abandoning this blog. Last two months I had some projects as both food photographer and stylist. I'll tell you the details in the future (please keep your finger cross for that *LOL*).

I believe most of us know about this melt in the mouth confectionery from French, macaron. According to Wikipedia:

A macaron (French pronunciation: [makaˈʁɔ̃][1] is a sweet meringue-based confectionery made with egg whites, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder or ground almond, and food colouring.[2] The macaron is commonly filled with ganache, buttercream or jam filling sandwiched between two cookies. Its name is derived from the Italian word maccarone or maccherone.

Though it's from French, doesn't mean that you cannot find and buy macaron from the local store in your country, you can! Or if you love to bake, you can make your own macaron yourself. You can easily find macaron recipes by surfing the net, choose one you like then execute. Check this tutorial on making macaron written by Helen Dujardin of Tartelette.

But if you don't bake or simply don't have time and by any chance living in Jakarta, you can order macaron from Butterfly of a Rainbow (BoaR).

Macaron made by Anthie Arvianto (owner of Butterfly of a Rainbow) suits my taste bud, not too sweet but sweet enough to be considered as confectionery. The buttercream filling has 3 different flavors; lemon, strawberry and green tea; and all are just perfect. My toddler son loves it, and that's enough said.

I have eaten several macaron from cake shop around Jakarta and so far, the one from Butterfly on a Rainbow is still my favorite.

Not only for personal consume, macarons from Butterfly on a Rainbow also perfect souvenir on your special occasion such as birthday, wedding, graduation day, etc, and they will pack them in a pretty package like the one below.
