The Macaron Mission


Here in the suburbs of Mississauga, french macarons are pretty hard to come by. The only places I know that sell these little french delights are Whole foods that come at a price of $8 for 6 minis and from Sweets located in Heartland which sadly shut down. They definitely do not come cheap, and they're pretty tricky to make too, and I don't really have patience to make 20 batches of flopped macarons..maybe one day but not anytime soon. So it hit me, that what Mississauga lacks in the hundreds of bakeries around me are macarons. I'm on a mission to change that, I'm sick and tired of looking at macaron pictures on instagram and pinterest. Here in Streetsville theres about 10 bakeries alone, cute little pastry shops filled with everything but macarons. I've decided to make a business proposal, and that is for them to start selling macarons. I'm going to treat this like a thesis and do my research, make personal surveys and just basically get at least ONE bakery in Streetsville to make these goddamn cute french cookies!  I will post about my progress and even set up a survey..I don't know how or when this will happen but all I know is that I'm going to make this happen.

Wish me luck
