I have always wanted to try macarons, but never really had a chance. Here in Nashville,TN there aren’t many places where they are readily available. Needless to say, I was super excited when I got the opportunity to try out these delicious treats from Dana’s Bakery.
Dana’s Bakery is a New York based bakery that specializes in combining the traditional French macaron with favorite American flavors. I received the variety pack which includes classic flavors and the Mac of the Month. The Mac of the Month for March is Cookies and Cream. The classic flavors are: Key Lime Pie, S’mores, Chocolate Molten, Cup of Joe, Birthday Cake, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Red Velvet, Fruity Cereal, Orange Creamsicle, Strawberry Shortcake, and Cookie Dough. Dana’s Bakery Macarons are Gluten-free and made with almond flour.
I let my daughter join in to taste test the macarons. The first thing we loved was how fresh they tasted. The macarons where firm on the outside with a crunchy outer shell but were so moist and chewy inside. We enjoyed all of the flavors. The flavors are delicate, not over-powering or artificial tasting. Each flavor is spot on and very true to taste. My favorite is the Red Velvet Macaron!
My daughter’s favorite flavor is fruity cereal. Lucky for her, Dana’s Bakery offers a fruity cereal macaron making kit. We will have to try that out.
Here is a close up of two of the macarons. The pink swirl macaron is the Birthday Cake flavor. The purple macaron is Peanut Butter and Jelly.

Dana’s Bakery not only make individual orders, but they also cater for events and celebration. My daughter’s birthday is coming up in a few months and I think these would be a great idea instead of a cake.
I really love how Dana’s Bakery has made it possible for everyone to try macarons no matter where you are in the country. That’s amazing in itself. I plan to order more really soon! Sign up for Dana’s Bakery email list to received 10% off your first order.
