Style Bites

Macarons inspired by sister style bloggers’ favorite trends

In truth, to call We The Birds a style blog stops short. The creative duo behind the site, sisters Sarah and Natalie Knowlton, style, produce, and star in lookbooks that rival brand sites—all while running a burgeoning macaron biz. We talked to the sisters about their style in the October issue, but what about those delicious macs? Exclusively for 1530 Main, We The Birds created a trio of macarons inspired by their favorite fall trends.

LE ROUGE
Inspired by fall’s feathers and fringe
Raspberry with dark chocolate ganache adorned with a fondant feather
“Red is daring and elegant—it’s hard not to love such a powerful color. This trend speaks to our core: birds of a feather…”

EMPRESS
Inspired by the runway’s floral silk prints
Black sesame with matcha buttercream and hand-painted cherry blossoms
“Floral prints and silks bring us straight back to our time living in Southeast Asia.”

SPARKLING ICE
Inspired by the season’s futuristic silver metallics
Champagne with champagne buttercream with edible silver foil and glitter dust
“We’re loving the metallic, futuristic trend. We can’t wait to get our hands on some silver boots!”

The Details: We the Birds create custom macarons orders by request. If you can dream it, they can bake it. Get more details here.
