Local Bakery Gives Away Gourmet Macarons on March 20, 2021
In a tradition of French patisseries and celebrating the onset of Spring, So Sweet Pastries is celebrating Worldwide Macaron Day with free macarons while supporting a great cause, No Women Left Behind Scholarship, initiatives fund under Women of Toledo on March 20, 2021 starting at 10am while supplies last.
Customers are encouraged to come and sample these delicious macarons, a delicate French sandwich cookie made from almond flour and joined together with a ganache, buttercream, or jam frosting filling. Following in the footsteps of Paris, New York, Chicago – and our fourth year in Toledo history – Toledo and Ohio will celebrate the macaron! So Sweet Pastries is located at 4038 Talmadge Rd, Toledo, OH 43623
Macaron Day began in Paris at the premiere pastry shop of Pierre Herme (la maison Pierre Herme Paris) in 2005 and several years later found a calling at Francois Payard’s shops in New York. A tradition of gourmet pastries merged with community giving. Participants traditionally sampled macarons for free and then left a donation for a community organization.
Macarons will be given for free this year – with donations requested to support ‘No Women Left Behind’ (NWLB) Fund of Women of Toledo. This initiative fund offers any women, young women & Disconnected Youth with financial hardship to receive direct aid, or attend any Professional Educational Development series, Mentoring and Coaching services for free within the organization.
With 300 macarons ready and waiting – Macaron Day begins at 10:00 a.m.! We welcome all to join us while quantities last! Highlighting “One Macaron=One Donation” – each patron will receive a free macaron with donations being accepted to support Women of Toledo.
