Want perfect macarons?

Macaron Trinket Boxes

And by perfect, I mean perfectly pretty pastel ones?

Macaron Trinket Boxes

Just don’t bite because you might break a tooth.

Blue Macaron Trinket Box

That’s right. These aren’t at all edible. But they are completely adorable.

Adorable little macaron trinket boxes.

Macaron Trinket Box

For trinkets. For sweetness. For smiles.

Trinket Boxes

I’ve been trying to get my hands on some of these for a little while now. They are sold separately and come in six different colors, but they’ve been sold out on a lot of sites. So I was very excited when I came across someone who had them. It was just by chance when I saw that my friend Courtney of Pizzazzerie had posted a picture of this macaron on her instagram and where she got it from. Naturally, I stalked the seller only to find out we had actually met a few weeks before at Amy Atlas’ book signing in Atlanta. Weird. Crazy. Kinda coincidental.

Anyway, you can buy them individually from Waiting on Martha or you can also get a whole set of 12 if you’re as crazy for them as I am.

Why? Well, because with the whole set, you get the super cute store display box, too.


Macaron Trinket Boxes

But, if you want… you can just enter for a chance to win a box set from me right here. Yay!

Yep, I couldn’t resist buying one to give away, too.


Enter for a chance to win this set of 12 macaron trinket boxes.
Note: this set has duplicate greens because the rose color was sold out. But when I get my hands on two more rose macarons, the winner will get those also for a complete set.

  • Just leave a comment on the blog with your answer to the following question.
  • What’s your favorite show to watch on TV? or What new show are you looking forward to this fall?
  • Deadline to enter is Wednesday, September 12 at 7:00 pm ET. SORRY, TIME’S UP!
  • One winner will be chosen at random and announced sometime Wednesday evening.

Good luck guys!

Okay, we have a winner. And a bunch of show recommendations to check out. Here are some of my current likes that I thought I’d share, too.

Dexter, Homeland, Glee, Big Brother After Dark, Mad Men, Thirty Rock, Walking Dead, Modern Family, Californication, New Girl, Project Runway, Dancing with the Stars, What not to Wear, Top Chef, Bachelor Pad, Storage Wars, Shameless and a lot more I can’t think of right now.

Okay, ready to see who won the macaron trinket boxes? I am.

It’s April – #2508! YAY! And April, I like iCarly, too.

I absolutely love The Office. Though it hasn’t been as good as it was in seasons 2 and 3, I still love it. Dwight Schrute is the best and I am major stoked to see what shenanigans he’ll bring when The Office restarts!

I also fell in love with The Mindy Project. I have adored her since the start of her role on The Office and saw the pilot on Hulu. She is hilarious and so likeable — I’ve already seen the 1st episode 3 times! Can’t wait until the show takes off!

Omgie I NEED these!

My favorite show to watch is America’s Next Top Model. I know. But it’s the only ‘reality’ show I watch. Revenge is AMAZING too, but I can’t watch it this season cause it changed, days, boo!

First of all, these are beautiful. Secondly, I was totally thrown by the fact that they are FAKE! haha

I know..silly, right?…but I was seriously expecting these to be the real deal … and maybe that’s why I think they’re so cute..because they actually DO look yummy!

Hey Bakerella!

I know this giveaway is over, but I wanted to let you know my favorite show anyway :)

I actually JUST finished the whole series of Prison Break. (Ahh I know, I know, I’m so late!) The show came out in 2005 and was on air until 2009.

Anyway it’s a pretty good show. I was kinda sad when I watched the final episode though. It’s like finishing a really good book lol.

Cute homemade oreos btw! Love how creative you are with incorporating the holidays into your baked sweets! :)

My fave memory is baking CC cookies with my 90 yr old great grandmother! She never measured and they always came out perfectly and delicious! To this day, we cannot recreate her magically wonderful cookies. They were light as air yet had a crispy dense chocolate crunch even when mailed to me in college! I haven’t baked with her in 25 years but I can still go there in my mind in a second! Miss you and love you, Nana!

My favorite baking memory is “helping” my mom bake as a child. There was a tall red chair in my kitchen that I used to pull up by the counter and sit and watch her bake. I think the most help I provided was licking off the beaters. It didn’t matter what she made, I was always fascinated with the baking process. I think that’s why I love baking so much as an adult! I’m so glad to have those memories.

My FAVORITE BAKING MEMORY is with my grandmother making something called Potica. It is a sweetbread dough with a walnut honey filling. I remember that she could roll a small ball of dough so thin it covered the entire kitchen table and the table seated 10!!! I was always in awe of her and her baking abilities. Unfortunately, she died when I was 17 and her recipe died with her. We were so close I guess in my naivety I thought she would always be there. My family and I have tried multiple recipes never getting it as perfect as hers. I miss her still and I will be 50 next year. I wish I could tell her how much my time with her truly meant to me. Thanks for helping me re-kindle that memory. :)
