Earlier this week I received quite a pleasant surprise on my doorstep. (Well, not exactly my doorstep because it had to take a bit of a detour.. but that's a whole different story.) This surprise came in the form of a cute little box of macarons from Bellefleur by Beatrix. Bellefleur is a small home-based business co-founded by two sisters, Beatrix and Kim Atienza, sometime late last year. They specialize in creating quality home-baked treats such as French macarons, cupcakes, and more. Beatrix handles all the baking and product development, while Kim is in charge of the photography and marketing. All Bellefleur products are made from scratch, using only the finest of ingredients. What's more, all their products are preservative-free.
Truth be told, before this I wasn't really much of a macaron nut, as all the macarons I've tried before are either too sweet or too crumbly for my taste. This is the first time I've really enjoyed eating macarons, both the sweetness level and the consistency were just right. Of course, they look great in photos too, which is a big plus for me! (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)
Also, I found out through Beatrix herself that though majority of their customers purchase their goods for personal consumption or as gifts, recently their products are being used more and more as party giveaways and as part of dessert buffets. If you're hosting a party or an event and you want something sweet to serve your guests, you might want to get in touch with Bellefleur. I highly recommend getting their macarons in every flavor! Right now though, they don't offer a delivery service; all orders are picked up from their house in Greenhills. For orders and product/price inquiries, you can contact Bellefleur by sending them a PM / text / email here:
