The Power of Packaging
I bought these cardboard boxes on my last visit to Mora, thinking they might come in useful for gift-giving. Not that I give away so many sweets, but I do like boxes!
I recently remembered them and decided a friend's celebration of her two older children's first communion was a good occasion for baking and giving cannelés and macarons.
What a difference a nice box makes! Home-baked goodies seem much more professional presented in a simple white box.
Lemon and salted caramel macarons. I also made coffee macarons but they were a failure. Argh, macarons!
I also purchased some plastic bags for smaller gifts.
(I gave one of these to my husband to take to work... and he left it on the bus. I hope whoever found the macarons ate them!)
