Amelie’s, the Charlotte-based French bakery, has made a name for itself with macarons. Now they’re getting ready to do something very different with them.
Starting Monday, they’re adding Macaron Gateau: A big macaron cake. It’s actually sort of like a crispy layered pastry called a dacquoise. In this case, it’s layers of crispy macaron with filling between the layers.
The cakes will be $18.95 and serve 8 to 10 people. You can pick from 25 flavors of cake and filling and add a short message to the top. And did I mention that it’s gluten-free? That might come in handy.
They’ll have them at the NoDa, Carmel, uptown and Park Road Shopping Center locations.
