True for the coasts, but here in the middle they are brand spanking new!  :)   It takes awhile for trends of all kinds to take hold in the Midwest.  Our town got our first cupcake shop less than a year ago.

Macaroons are just now infiltrating Idaho. Killer bees will probably be next. icon_biggrin.gif

I love macarons (I've had the real ones from Laduree in Paris, amazing) but they're so expensive. At least $4 at Crumbs gets me more than one bite!

I'm brand new, so a trend could have hit 2 years ago and I wouldn't know it!

 

My best guess is cakes with pictures inside when you slice them. Those amaze me.

I'm going with donuts. I do believe that czar was right I was seeing macarons on Etsy years ago and I'm sick of seeing them! I already had a bride ask me about a donut wedding cake. In the american cake magazine it was saying how decadent donuts were the new trend. That pastry chefs were now entering them in contests.

I'm not saying I'm for the donuts craze I'm just saying what I'm reading and hearing.

I love doughnuts but don't want to make them.

The macaron (proper spelling) craze is about over. I actually stopped producing macarons a couple of years ago. I got so tired of people complaining about the price ( THAT much? For something THAT small?) I snapped one day after hearing that for the umpteenth time (yet they always purchased - and always came back for more - complaining about the cost all the while) and threw away all the macarons in the case and all the shells in the freezer.

I haven't made a single macaron to this day.

I'm in Richmond VA which is about 10 years behind the trends. We have a woman here who decided to bring th macaron trend to Richmond when it was actually trending in NYC and LA. So she opened a business, bought lots of publicity, and to years later is out of business because there isn't enough business to sustain that kind of thing. Seriously, macarons are dry cookies with a little icing in them. I don't like them personally and I guess when people get over the idea that "they're so cute" they realize that they don't really taste that good overall.

It's all a matter of taste.  I love macarons and avoid making them, not because they are difficult to make, but because they are difficult to resist.  Having said that it is not very often that I will splash out and spend $3 (local price) on one because they are so small and one is never enough.

got some macarons from one of the most famous chefs in the world located in the nappa area and y'know the vanilla wafer filled cookie sticks (we ate tons of them  as kids--have the cellulite to prove it)

 

they were the identical taste & texture--super sweet & kinda crunchy --so what

 

i mean i guess i just never had a good one--but i gave it a good go

 

now that godot has discontinued hers...i guess i'm permanently out of luck for sure--love love that story!

Sounds about right -  the Midwest is behind VA, which is 10 years behind the coasts!  Always last to the party!  But who would open an "all macaron" store anywhere?  They don't even do that in Paris!  Macarons aren't my absolute favorite, but mine aren't dry - they have a slight crisp to the outside, and are creamy inside after aging in the fridge.

OK, now, wafer cookies have the consistency of styrofoam to me - loved 'em as a kid, but hate the idea of eating one now. :)

I've seen lots of doughnuts too, but really, you have to have a gourmet doughnut shop in your area to pull off the doughnut tower cake trend for a wedding.  Otherwise you are going to end up with a stack of stale grocery store doughnuts, and the result isn't going to be that pretty.

 

But some good doughnuts do sound good right now. :)

In my opinion, 2014 will be the year that zorbing finally catches on in a big way.
