'Tis the Season to be Jolly: Christmas Macs

Two new posts within 1 week? Amazing!! I almost cannot believe myself that I have the time to write another post this week. This one will be a short one but it is about mac attack and the new mac flavors Miel has for Christmas: cinnamon apple, peppermint chocolate, and strawberry'n cream. Most of you are probably more familiar with the first two flavors. Cinnamon apple and peppermint have often been correlated with Christmas, but strawberry'n cream? Isn't strawberry a summer fruit, you say? Yeap, it is. However, just look at the cake display cases in Japan and you'll find strawberry shortcakes wherever you go during Christmas. I think it's a Japanese thing, I'm not sure, but what I know is I love the combination of milky cream and tart strawberries. Since I love making anything I love to eat into the form of macs, I decided to include strawberry'n cream as one of my seasonal flavors for Christmas :D Additionally, it's been a while since I posted for Mac Attack, and coincidentally this post fits the theme for this month. I've checked out the other entries and they all looked awesome! Hopefully, you enjoy this one as well :)

Oh I almost forgot, Miel will have a new box (again) for Christmas! As always, my dad's creative mind couldn't stop working, so he designed another box for Miel. The Christmas box will contain 12 macarons and will be decorated with ribbons. Cards are available upon request. The good news is... THE PRICE IS STILL THE SAME! Such a good deal right? A lil bit marketing here, lol.. Okay, I guess I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves :)
