  1. Cupcake... definitely a cupcake.

  2. If the macarons are from Pierre Herme, then they get my vote!

  3. Cupcake! I've never fully understood the whole macaron craze (and yes I've had ones from Laduree, Pierre Herme, Fauchon, etc..).

  4. Macaron. I can get cupcakes any time. Better yet, macaron followed by a cupcake! LOL.

  5. This is a tough one. Normally I would go for macarons, hands down. But macarons don't have buttercream frosting...ummmm...buttercream...

    BTW, have you tried the Picard cupcakes? Dry, but palatable.

    Cupcakes every day, macarons (especially Laduree?) for a treat.

    I guess that's what you call having your cake and eating it..... (sorry)

  7. macarons over cupcakes, which I've never understood-too fussy, too messy, too too.

  8. Cupcakes, for sure! Macarons are likely to fade away one day, like most other fads...

  9. Macaron if it's the Ispahan from Ladurée... Cupcakes if they're violet flavoured!

  10. I think this perfectly exemplifies my debate between NY & Paris.

    I love Paris. Obviously. But for all the exquisite choux-filled, raspberry and pistachio flavored Religieuse cakes, there are no quarter-pound, cornflake-marshmallow-chocolate-chip cookies.

    For all the perfectly folded and formed buttery croissants, there are no stick-to-your-gut (and butt) blackout cake doughnuts.

    And for every dainty rose infused macaron, I miss a big, sloppy cream-filled devil’s food cupcake.

    I guess the beautiful thing is, there is no wrong answer. It's all delicious, n'est ce pas??

  11. I'm definitely a cupcake girl, but I wouldn't necessarily turn down a macaron if offered. ;-)

  12. Macaron! Pistachio, lemon, heck, I even love the vanilla macarons. Although I wouldn't turn down a big, sloppy cream-filled devil’s food cupcake.
