Grab A Slice Of Paris In S.F. With This Supersized Macaroon Cake

main
There's something about the word "supersized" that makes us run for the hills — a consequence of watching those unappetizing scenes from Super Size Me, no doubt. But, we're changing our tune for The Westin St. Francis' latest creation, a serious ode to the Parisian confection. That's right — S.F. can now call itself home to one of the largest macaroon wedding cakes in the country.

Made with more than 1,000 handmade macaroons, and ranging in flavors from pistachio to rosewater to yuzu, this is the sort of spectacle that doesn't come around every day, people! Only on display through May 6, don't delay and go peep this sweet sighting before its gone.
