How Sweet It Is Cakes Puts French Twist on National Macaroon Day

According to, National Macaroon Day is observed every year on May 31. And while we love this small coconut cookie, we are equally excited about its French cousin – the macaron!

French macarons are a delightful treat offered at How Sweet It Is Cakes in Duluth’s Holiday Center. The macaron commonly consists of a ganache, buttercream or jam filling sandwiched between two cookies.

Today, Shay Mickelson took us through the process of making macarons with raspberry buttercream and lemon buttercream filling.

You can find macarons at least every two weeks at How Sweet It Is Cakes for $1.95 a piece. Happy snacking!
