Love Heart Feature // Ganache Macaron: Halloween & the Day of the Dead

Last week I finally treated myself to a trip to the Ganache Macaron bakery to have a look behind the scenes. I’ve been a huge fan of Ganache Macaron’s deliciously sinful creations since I was introduced to them at a Central London wedding fair, and from the moment I tasted their peanut butter and jam macaron I was hooked!

My visit to their bakery was delightful and the smell was quite simply incredible! I got the chance to see how the super talented Ganache Macaron bakers turn brightly coloured macaron mix into perfectly formed macarons using some very impressive looking kit, and I was able to watch as founding director Audrey hand decorated a huge skull macaron for their latest installation. It was such a treat!

Now, over to Ganache Macaron for more on their latest installation and their new Halloween-inspired macaron flavours…

The Ganache Macaron team have been preparing for autumn. Firstly, our second large bespoke project is now complete and on display at Wahaca in Covent Garden. Secondly, our new range of flavours for autumn has been confirmed and is available for purchase via the Ganache Macaron website.

Ganache Macaron has teamed up with Katherine Burke, a talented, young designer, to build an incredible, edible creation inspired by the Day of the Dead. Carefully constructed and covered in an array of handmade elements, including a plethora of handmade macarons, the sculpture pays tribute to the joyous and spiritual Day of the Dead celebrations.

The Day of the Dead, also known as El Día de Los Muertos, is a holiday celebrated in Mexico and parts of Central America, from the 31st of October to 2nd of November. It is a vibrant and colourful celebration involving public processions and frivolities, as well as altars that demonstrate love, remembrance and the welcoming back of souls.

For their piece, Ganache Macaron and Katherine have created their own take on one of the holiday’s delicacies, Sugar Skulls, in the form of hand decorated and personalised macarons covered in colourful skull designs.

The team has even taken on the massive feat of creating a skull shaped macaron, larger than an adult human head, along with over 300 other macarons to be part of the display. The piece also features handmade skulls including the lady of the dead herself, La Catrina, whose role in the Day of the Dead dates back to Aztec traditions. The entire piece measures 220cm tall and 130cm in width.

Along with their bespoke piece, Ganache Macaron will also be launching a new range of unique flavours for Halloween and the Day of the Dead; including their irresistible Hazelnut, Chai Tea, Caramel Popcorn, Banoffee Pie, Chocolate & Popping Candy and Chocolate & Chilli flavours.

Each recipe was created from scratch by Ganache Macaron head chefs, Audrey Cadostin and Paul Regan in their London-based bakery.  These fun flavours will be available to purchase through the Ganache Macaron website, in their classic versions as well as with Day of the Dead skull designs.
