For Mademoiselle Rachel her first bite of a macaron represented a moment of luxury and as such, we strive to ensure that each of our customers experiences a taste of Paris with every bite. We're always excited to see the imaginative and fun ways our macarons are used to decorate cakes, patisserie and by talented bakers.
Tell us a little about yourself, what's your business, and when did you start?
What inspired you to start?Being able to spread some joy and help create happy memories for people during a time when they couldn’t see family and friends or have their special events inspired me to start Sweet Peaks. Plus it was also something that I could fit in around the kids and found it relaxing after a day of home schooling!
What's your speciality bake and where do you draw inspiration from?
I specialise in baking extravagant pavlova cakes for all occasions and events such as Birthdays, baby showers, engagements and small weddings. One of my most popular designs are the double digits for large milestone Birthdays but the flamingo and unicorn pavlova cakes are also a big hit.
Where are you based and how can people order from you/what area do you cover?
I work form my domestic kitchen in Kirkliston to the west of Edinburgh. I am fortunate that my location enables me to reach customers across Edinburgh City, West Lothian and Fife – I’ve even had people drive from as far as Eyemouth to collect a pavlova! People can enquire or place an order from me via both my Facebook and Instagram accounts however I do love a good old fashioned chat on the telephone.
How do you incorporate our macarons to your creations?
What’s your favourite flavour and colour of macaron?
Its very difficult to narrow down a favourite flavour and colour because I have yet to taste one I don’t like! But I really love the pinks as they make my pavlovas look so pretty and feminine. My favourite flavour is strawberry – its my favourite fruit as well.
