FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do you offer cakes and desserts in addition to macarons?

We can offer cakes and other desserts upon client request as an extension of a macaron order. We can only advise whether we have the capacity to take the additional desserts on board following a client brief.

 

Do you have a shop?

We bake from a home kitchen registered with the City of Boroondara so we do not have a shop. We do run regular market stalls - please check out our Instagram for market stall dates and venues.

 

Can I order multiple flavours for small quantities?

Because we are a small operation, with most of our business being custom orders, we are unable to bake multiple flavours in advance.  We make everything to order, one order at a time. The minimum order amount for custom orders is 20 pieces as each recipe yields approximately 20 macarons of the one flavour/colour.

If you would like to try multiple flavours, follow us on Instagram and take note of our market stall dates where you can purchase individual/small quantities from our stall.  We usually offer up to 8 different flavours.

 

Are your macarons gluten free?

Yes, most of our flavours are gluten free unless otherwise stated.

 

Are your macarons vegan?

Our macarons are suitable for vegetarians but they are not vegan.  The structure of our macarons is formed by the use of egg whites, almond meal and sugar.  We do know of a vegan substitute called aquafaba (chickpea brine) that is known to yield quite good results.  We may offer these in the future depending on demand.

Am I able to order direct online rather than going through email?

We take a personable and collaborative approach in consulting with our clients via email, on the phone or in person so we currently do not have a system in place online for direct orders.  Our point of difference is to offer our clients a quality, custom, made to order product and for us, it's important to understand your requirements before creating each and every order.  

 

Do you do wholesale orders?

Yes, we do.  Please get in touch with us direct about your requirements.

We also offer great rates to fellow bakers who need custom coloured macarons for celebration cakes and dessert catering.

 

Why do you need notice to create your orders?

We are actually a sole trader who runs all aspects of the business ( getting supplies, baking, packing, emailing, admin) from home.  Our business is not dissimilar from a cake supplier where orders are made weeks in advance. This is to ensure adequate time is allowed to plan, prepare and create your order so that the end product is of the highest quality.

 

How much do you charge for a macaron tower?

The minimum quantity is 40 pieces if you wish to have your macarons displayed on a tower.  Prices start at $100 which includes hire of the acrylic stand with a refundable $50 bond.  It's best to get in touch with us with your budget, date required, venue location, theme and flavour preferences.

 

Do you ship your products?

Our macarons cannot be shipped as they are very fragile and need to be refrigerated at all times.
