First Annual Macaron Challenge

We have some very exciting news today on Sweet Talk. Today kicks off the First Annual Macaron Challenge!

What is the Macaron Challenge?

I’m glad you asked! We recruited 13 of our favorite bloggers, and boy do we have a great mix! We have everything from a blogger who makes works of art from her recipes to a vegetarian blogger who hopes to find a way to make a completely vegetarian macaron!

How does it work?

We’ve given out a home version of our top secret macaron recipe to each of the 13 bloggers. The recipe is our very basic macaron recipe, no strawberries or fun fillings or anything like that. It is up to each blogger to put their unique spin on Sucré’s world famous macarons. They will document their progress and write an article along with their macaron entry sometime during the month of April. As each person completes their recipe we will add it to this page so that you can check out their handy work.

The Voting

You, the Sucré reader, get to choose which three blogs will be finalists by voting on your favorite macaron below. Granted, you won’t be able to taste their creations so we are asking you to judge each macaron on their creativity and presentation. At the end of April the three blogs with the most votes will be revealed to Tariq, our Executive Pastry Chef, and he will select his favorite. This blogger gets their very own Sucré Macaron Subscription so they can enjoy macarons all year long! Check this page regularly throughout the month of April for updates on the Macaron Challenge!
