Did you catch the recent episode of Cupcake Champions that featured The Sweet Lobby? A former Cupcake Wars champion, the owner decided to combine her signature macaron with a gourmet cupcake. This is a bold move since one of the judges is Florian Bellanger, owner of MadMac Macarons in New York.
This risky move paid off as Florian said she did a good job on the macaron and both he and Candace Nelson enjoyed the cupcake too.
The Sweet Lobby had decided to capitalize on this new creation by selling the MacTop in their Washington, D.C. store and will soon be offering it for online purchase (July). The MacTop will be available in many flavors, including: The Madagascar, Red Velvet, Lemon, Green Tea, Chocolate Raspberry, Chocolate Coconut, Strawberry Rose, and Vanilla Milk Chocolate. I have mine on order already and can't wait to give it a try.
What do you think of this combo?
