Macarune - red velvet, caramel fleur de sel, hibiscus macaroons?

A chowhound sent me an email to the KQED blog about this new baker who sells custom-made macaroons, cakes, cookies and cupcakes. Anyone tried these?

The macaroon flavors I've seen mentioned in addition to those in the title: mixed sesame pomegranate, thai iced tea, rose, lavender, vanilla bean, strawberry, pistachio,coffee, coconut, hazelnut,lychee, lavender, raspberry, black sesame, green tea.

I guess this is the baker's blog with a picture of a cake and some cupcakes. I like the whimsy of the bumblebee cake.

Interesting reading the KQED blog that the baker says there are two methods for making macaroons - "... French style, meaning that the buttercream sandwiched in the middle is made by pouring sugar syrup over egg yolks and whipping it to peaks ... Italian method, which uses egg whites in place of yolks."
