Recently the Free People store in White Provisions held an event at which they served XK Macarons. Though I could not attend the event, I gushed over all of their pictures on Instagram and quickly started following XK Macaron's own profile. I became mesmerized by the pastel treats and other goods sold at Mae's Bakery (who I found through XK's Instagram). Mae's just recently started carrying XK Macarons, a company started by Xana Kidd earlier this year.
The macarons have a rapidly growing following in the Atlanta area, and for good reason. Last Saturday, we stopped into Mae's Bakery to sample some of their offerings and they were delicious. I had the Earl Grey Lavender macaron and chocolate cupcake with buttercream icing. Another of my favorites was the Almond Joy cupcake which has an almond crust at the bottom of the cake. Located just down the street from Lenox Mall, Mae's Bakery is in a wonderful location. I know if I lived in the area I would stop in often to enjoy some of their beautiful sweets and a cup of tea.
