Friday Fave - Jonathan Caleb Macarons
People, if you have a sweet tooth, and love pretty colors, and sparkles, and whimsy, I'm about to be your best friend. Seriously though, if you identify with anything in the above statement you need to check out my pal Jonathan Caleb, maker of bespoke cakes, confections, and fine sugar artistry. But most importantly, he makes killer macarons that you can find at pop-ups around Greenville.
I've had quite a lot of macarons in my time. My first taste was at Laduree in New York, with arguably the most famous macarons in the world. And I'm about to say something a little controversial, so bear with me. Honestly, I think Jonathan's macarons are better. I cannot get enough of them! I'm glad Jonathan and I have become foodie friends because I'm pretty sure he could put out a restraining order on me for how often I stalk him at his pop-ups. But his macarons are seriously addicting, and I need my fix, people!
What sets these beauties apart from other macarons I've had are all of the inventive flavors. Salted Caramel, Oreo, Snickers, Brownie Mint Chocolate, Pumpkin Spice, Key Lime, Lemon Tart, Eggnog, Chocolate Peppermint, Smores, Strawberry Shortcake, Whipped Peanut Butter, and okay, I had to stop. I drooled on my keyboard a bit thinking about them. See what I mean though!! Check out some of his stunning and delicious macarons. Oh, and the amazing cake he made for my friend's birthday (photo by Jonathan Caleb Cake).
Not only are these amazing treats, but you're not going to meet anyone more friendly or welcoming than Jonathan. It's quite obvious that he puts a lot of love into his beautiful treats.
