If there’s such a thing as macaron enrapturement, I am in the throes of it. Since beginning this little blog, I have ogled many a macaron, from the humble and homey (such as PB & J) to the ostentatiously epicurean (fig and foie gras, anyone?), but no one makes macarons like these hand-painted confections by Lou Lou P’s Delights. The work of an edible artist extraordinaire, Lou’s creations range from refined and elegant to pop-culturally quirky to wryly and humorously macabre (an anatomically correct macaron heart, for instance, and a build-your-own skeleton with tonic water–infused macarons that glow in the dark). Feast your eyes upon these far-from-ordinary treats!

Who couldn’t love a macaron with one of Beatrix Potter’s beloved characters smack dab in the middle of it? Peter Rabbit, Jeremy Fisher, Jemima Goose, Samuel Whiskers—they’re all here! These would have been perfect for this Beatrix Potter–inspired summer wedding. They would also make a marvelous addition to any baby shower or child’s birthday party.
