Don’t we all love getting gifts? Hell yes! Especially when they are edible, and incredible!. While visiting Vegas, I got a nice surprise when I was given a box of macarons by LT, the creator of So Sweet Bites Custom Desserts (http://www.soathome.blogspot.com/). LT is one hot little Suzie Homemaker and makes the most detailed and delicious dessert masterpieces. I was given heart-shaped toffee and mini hazelnut flavored macarons. I always thought the things she made were way to pretty to eat, but that thought went out the window after trying by first bite. The most amazing cakes and treats that are stimulating to taste and look at, I could now say, I would not feel bad eating. I always salivate when viewing her Instagram and blog posts, and was stoked when I was able to enjoy the macarons that she so thoughtfully made for me. LT is as sweet as her desserts. I felt a little pang of sadness when I ate my last bite, but I could not help and thoroughly enjoyed getting my Mac on.

I discovered that there is a location in Pasadena. The Box reads: “Lette macarons are freshly made by hand in our Beverly Hills bakery. Their vivid colors represent the natural essences that infuse the ganache filling of these festive almond cookies. Each of our macarons has its own personality – and all of them made to savour for their delicacy and unique character. Enjoy!” And enjoy I did! My favorites were the butterscotch macarons (but since I didn’t purchase them, I’m only guessing they were butterscotch because that’s what they tasted like); however, I can’t say I did’t enjoy any flavor I had. While eating these Lette macarons, I figured out exactly what all the hype was about…
