Celebrating Macaron Day at Butter Avenue in Toronto

Hi everyone!!

Welcoming everyone back to my β€œsweet” blog, I’m back now!! πŸ™‚ Sorry it’s been quite sometime now since I last updated. I will try my best to keep my blog regularly updated from now on as you all know, it’s sometimes hard to do so with busy lives balancing out work, family and etc . Recently started a new job, so I’m learning to balance my life still. But my passion as always been about food particularly sweets and will continue to show that passion through my blog.

I thought it was perfect timing to start my blog again celebrating one of my fave sweet delicate desserts, β€œMacaron Day”, which was on Friday, March 20, 2015. As well it was the first day of Spring! There were so many things to celebrate on Friday! Macaron Day is also celebrated in other International cities along with Toronto, which celebrates these delicate confections in support of a local charity called: Red Door Family Shelter. There were participating patisseries across Toronto will come together to offer complimentary macarons to customers. For participating patisseries, please check out the website: http://www.macarondayto.com for future Macaron Days.

To celebrate β€œMacaron Day”, I went to my fave macaron shop, Butter Avenue, for the 2nd time that I have celebrated Macaron Day, but this time to the Queen and Spadina location one. It was my first time going to the Queen and Spadina location. I was surprised that there was a line up to get into the shop, but it was definitely worth the wait as I didn’t wait that long anyways maybe 5 minutes. Butter Avenue had 29 flavours available dedicated for this special β€œMacaron Day” that will not be available on a regular basis. I was very interested in that so that’s why I definitely wanted to try the new flavours.

There were so many flavours to choose from, which was hard to pick as they all sound so good lol! I ended up getting these flavours: Spring My Love (Safflower Raspberry), Secret Garden (Rose Mix Berries), Berry Yogurt, Red Bean Matcha, Sea Salt Caramel, and Almond BrΓ»lΓ©e. I bought half a dozen and shared it with my sister who also loves macarons. I wish I bought more lol, but they were so delicious to enjoy. My fave I have to say was the Berry Yogurt and Spring My Love!

As well, Butter Avenue this year was donating 35% of their macaron’s sales that day to the North York General Hospital Foundation. According to their Instagram account, it was a record breaking fundraising day and I’m happy to have participated in to help them out.

For those who joined in to celebrate β€œMacaron Day”, I hope that you all have enjoyed your sweet treat β€˜cause who doesn’t appreciate a little sweetness in their tastebuds. And for those who didn’t celebrate it, it is never too late to enjoy a small yet sweet macaron anytime of the day. Those looking for the best macarons in T.O, look no further than Butter Avenue. They will not disappoint! Definitely will be coming back for more macarons next time!

For now, will be looking for my next inspiration for the next blog. Looking for my next sweet adventure….
