The instance I bit into the strawberry macaron from the Cupcake Bakery, I knew it was a bad choice. The macaron's exterior shell was tough and the centre of the biscuit was as chewy as hard bubblegum. The chocolate ganache was also difficult to bite into. If this ganache was used on a cake, I doubt the dessert spoon would be able to cut through it.
The macaron was a waste of calories. Sorry. The cupcakes in the Cupcake Bakery aren't bad. It's probably best for this franchise to stick to their day job - cupcakes, not macarons.
