At the Macaron Tea Room in Broadview Heights, guests can find a rotating list of flavors such as triple berry, chai tea and strawberries and cream ($4 each), where the owner and head baker swaps out the traditional custard cream for a lighter, airier version.
“We add powdered sugar to stabilize it and then we add the fresh fruit or the flavoring,” she says. “I always pay attention to make sure there isn’t a lot of sugar in there.”
But her favorite part is decorating the 40 to 50 cloudlike confections she bakes each night with fresh berries, whipped cream and edible flowers.
“You can’t go wrong — you don’t get bored,” she says. “You always want to try something new.” 203 E. Royalton Road, Suite 114, Broadview Heights, 440-334-9119, themacarontearoom.com
