Macaron mania is sweeping the nation! The New York Times has declared the macaron "a threat to dethrone the cupcake." Unlike the gooey coconut macaroon, French macarons are delicate, button-size, melt-in-your mouth cookies made in a variety of decadent flavors and a rainbow of colors. Its American counterpart, the Whoopie Pie, was chosen as one of the Top 10 Food Trends for 2010 by Epicurious. Although less refined, these popular sweet treats are selling out daily at high-end gourmet stores around the world. If you're dying to know what everyone is oohing and ahhing about, find out first-hand in this new cutting-edge class. Students leave with a lovely box of macarons and some wicked whoopie pies.
