Sugar high friday. That I reckon is the best way to end the work week.
With these gigantic (think the size of your palm) French inspired macarons from the cake girl aka Delectable by Su, you will definitely get a sugar rush.
These hefty babies are priced at RM10 per piece.
But judging on the quality ingredients, size and of course its cuteness personified in clear boxes wrapped with the Delectable ribbons, every sen is worth it especially if your sweet tooth craves for macarons.
My take on the three flavours:
Salted Chocolate - pretty in sweet pink with a dark chocolate ganache centre. I loved the whole combination since I'm a big chocolate fan but I honestly couldn't taste any salty bits though.
Marmalade - the marmalade filling contains fruit peel shredded to give it a slight texture contrast. However, the marmalade needs a more tangy bite to it to undercut the sweet taste of the macaron shell.
Caramel latte - the most aromatic macaron of the trio with a coffee tingling aroma. The caramel within is lovely runny texture.
I admit I was a little taken back when I saw how large these were.
But the large size works well as there's more to bite in the shell. The top part breaks into delicate shards when you gently bite into it. Hidden underneath that shell is a layer of soft ground almonds that melds with the filling, making you sigh with pleasure after each bite.
Even though it scored high with lovely texture, I felt that more tangy flavours should be offered to those who prefer less sweet options.
Nevertheless, they are still incredibly addictive and of course, simply delectable with eye candy packaging like all the goodies in the Delectable by Su's shops. One warning though. The macarons are being made in small amounts, so it is best you call ahead to check their availability or you may leave empty handed.
