Macaron Bee Macarons

I've been to Georgetown countless times, but I had never ventured over to Macaron Bee until within this past year - what a cute little shop! It's tiny but packs tons of pretty little macarons to choose from.  
From left to right, we have Vanilla Bean, Matcha, and Fleur del sel Caramel - yum! I love green tea sweets though, so the Matcha was a close winner in my book - I especially loved the little sprinkle of matcha powder on top, so pretty.  I hope to go back in the fall/winter and see what their seasonal flavors are during that time of the year :o)

Georgetown Cupcake - Chocolate - Dipped Cookies & Creme Cupcake

Anything "cookies and creme" is already a winner in my book, so I knew that this free secret Chocolate-dipped Cookies & Creme Georgetown Cupcake cupcake would be delicious!  The fantastic cookies and creme cake is coated with a glossy chocolate ganache.  This was perfect with a glass of milk, and I know that anyone that likes Oreos would love this cupcake flavor.  I hope it makes an appearance again soon!
