I was fortunate a couple of weeks ago to be offered a complimentary selection of Yipsy Macarons to sample which I was most pleased about by Angela Yip-founder of Yipsy Macarons.
Fuelled by her passion for baking and love for Macarons Yipsy was founded by Angela Yip who left the world of finance and set up her own business making macarons.
Macarons are light, small meringue cookies made of almond flour, egg white, and sugar in a smooth colourful shell with little ‘feet’ sandwiched by a tasty ganache, buttercream, or curd filling. They come in different flavours.
They are not to be confused with macaroons that have no filling and are made from honey and coconut.
Angela delivered the macarons to me herself and they came in a secure pack of six different flavours, presented beautifully and peeking out of the packaging very temptingly.
I wasn’t allowed to open them until Ruth came home from work, so had to put them out of temptations way until the evening. 🙂
They came in six different flavours, they were superb and so pretty and suitable for vegetarians.
Not only did they look stunning on the plate, but were perfect little morsels of sweet seduction. They just melted in the mouth, each one unique, the flavours were delicious, the strawberry and pistachio and chocolate went down well. They were chewy, creamy and crisp, very indulgent and perfectly handmade.
Yipsy Macarons are available from their website http://www.yipsymacarons.com as a atreat for yourself, a loved one, or for a party or wedding. They make a lovely gift for a food loving friend or partner. Ideal for a celebration or as a wedding centre piece.

The Macarons are wrapped with secure packaging and hand delivered in the West Midlands or within 2 days via Royal Mail for £4.00.
They can be gift wrapped for an extra £2.00.
See the website for full details of packages and offers.
For that special indulgence that is different and perfectly handmade they can’t be beat.
The best macarons we had ever tasted was the comment:)
Thanks to Angela for the sample pack of Yipsi Macarons Ruth and I loved them and look forward to re ordering soon.
The Macarons were a complimentary sample. No product review was requested. All opinions are my own and honest.
