 - Mar 28, 2012
Most things French signify sophistication and decadence for many, which rings true with these macaroon pieces inspired by the delicate Parisian pastry. Though some may see the teeny treat as an odd source for inspiration, there are innumerable products available to testify against that.

Everything from apparel to jewelry, stationery and soap borrows aesthetics or scents from the dainty sweet, which proves that great things come in small packages. Notoriously finicky to bake, macaroons are probably so popular because they signify all things feminine and sweet; they're delicate and adorable, yet totally difficult to maintain -- not to mention they're delicious.

Before hitting up your local bakery, check out some of these macaroon pieces and try not to drool on your keyboard.
