The case of the disappearing giant macaron

By Lyrical Lemongrass

I was already in bed when Bald Eagle came home from work. As he reached over to kiss me, I could detect a faint smell of coffee on his breath. To be specific, it smelled like caramel latte. To be even more precise, it smelled like the caramel latte macaron I had just bought from Delectable by Su that evening which I hoped to savour the next day.

“Mmmm….the macaron was good,” he murmured.

“Don’t tell me you ate my macaron,” I said.

“Of course I ate it,” he said, nonchalantly.

“But it’s MY macaron,” I exclaimed.

“Yup, ” he replied.

“My macaron.”

“Uh-huh.”

An hour later, I nudged him, trying to call his bluff. ”You really ate my macaron?”

“It’s gone now.”

“You ate my macaron,” I sniffled.

“If it were your macaron, dear, you wouldn’t have displayed it in full prominence in the fridge to tempt me,” he explained, as he would to a child.

And with that, the matter was closed.

Having tasted several giant macarons from the shop prior to the case of my disappearing macaron, I can attest to the fact that Su’s macarons have a lovely texture; a crisp outer shell and a fudgy centre, with flavours that are not overly cloying. The size, easily 6-7 cm in diameter, allows for more consistency in texture. I do love the lemon raspberry macaron which provides a refreshing contrast in flavours. The salt in the salted chocolate macaron, on the other hand, is a bit undetectable – I would have liked it more had the flavour been more prominent. However, I am unable to comment on the caramel latte macaron thanks to a hungry husband, but I’m hoping he’ll read this and return the favour one day. Soon.
