Frequently Asked Questions
Do you or will you have a store front?
At this time we do not have a brick and mortar store. The macarons are all made fresh weekly and available at your favorite coffee shop or cafe! Check out our delicious macs at your local coffee place :)
You have seen us in the past at Makers Markets, pop up shops and vendor events. We LOVE to sell and meet you at these events and when they work into our schedule, we book a spot!
As for the future of Tara's Treats, only the Lord knows. It's been His since the beginning and that will continue! We have had different visions of where the business is headed but have chosen to grow slowly at this time in our lives. Our young children are only young once.
Do you sell cake pops?
I have made them in the past and I loved it, but they're so tedious and time-consuming. I've chosen to spend my time on macarons instead.
Aren't you spelling "macaron" wrong?
Thanks for asking, nope! A macaron (mac-a-RON, "Ron like the man") is a meringue-based cookie made of almond flour, egg whites & sugar. A macaroon (mac-a-ROON) is an entirely different cookie made of shredded coconut & sweetened condensed milk, usually drizzled in dark chocolate.
Are all macarons safe for someone with ceilac disease?
Macarons are made with almond flour, so they are naturally gluten free. Almost all flavors of macarons ARE gluten free, (except cookie butter macs!) but if you have a concern, be sure to ask. My macarons are made in our PA certified kitchen and it is not exclusively used for gluten free items. However, I use special care to be sure ingredients are all kept separate. If you have an extreme health risk to wheat, you may not want to risk it.
How do I place an order? How do I pay?
CURRENT UPDATE 2/2021:
We are now only wholesale, baking for local cafes and coffee shops. Sorry, we aren't accepting any custom orders or events at this time. You can always feel free to all the shops and have them hold a dozen of your favorite macs if you're hosting a little partay! If you're on your way to pick them up, I'm sure they would be happy to fill your box ahead of time!
