9.23 Macaron Variety Pack
For Appleton pick-up Saturday, 9/23 from 8am to 12pm. Order deadline Friday, 9/15 or until we are at capacity.
Give Mac gives back!
I am so thrilled to announce the next organization Give Mac will be donating to- The Greener Pasture!
The Greener Pasture is "a small farm sanctuary located in Tigerton, WI, working endlessly to provide joyful and peaceful lives for the small number of animals in our care. We provide food, shelter, and quality care for everyone who lives here with us, without expecting anything in return. It is our hope that when people get to meet our animals, each with their own personalities and stories, they will make more compassionate choices in their lives.
We cannot save all of the animals, but if the world were a more gentle place for animals to live, they wouldn't need saving. At The Greener Pasture we are choosing Peace. We cannot save all of the animals, but if the world were a more gentle place for animals to live, they wouldn't need saving. At The Greener Pasture we are choosing Peace."
Ten percent of all sales from 5.1.23 through 12.31.23 will be donated to their beautiful cause. Please visit their website and see all the amazing animals in their care.

I am honored to share the next organization Give Mac will be donating to- St. John's Ministries!

As a runner myself, this one is personal. I'm so thrilled to work with them and so energized to bake my heart out for you.
What a wild 6 months! From halting macarons, to baking cakes and cupcakes, to breakfast biscuits, to cake toppers, and finally back to macarons. I'm so grateful for all your orders and all the love with this round of giving back.
We raised $688 for We All Rise: African American Resource Center! $688! And to top it all off we were able to celebrate with them at their Juneteenth event. It was so special and so much fun!
I'm hoping to announce our next organization in the coming weeks so stay tuned and keep those orders coming. Yay!
Yay! As many of you know, I took a break from selling macarons to work on a more reliable recipe with "the best" egg white replacement, potato protein. Turns out it wasn't all that great. So I went back to my old recipe using aquafaba, worked on a few tricks and techniques, and here we are!
Ordering is LIVE, but it's going to look a little different for the time being so please check out our macaron page for more details. First day of macaron pick-ups (in Appleton) will begin this Sunday, June 12.
(I am a one woman show so hopefully everything is set up correctly for placing orders. You are not charged at the time of your order and I will reach out to via email within 24 hours to confirm. The time of your order will hold your place in line. If you have any difficulties you can always just email me.)
Memorial Day weekend cupcake pre-order! This is a great opportunity to try multiple flavors. Each box contains one dozen cupcakes ($36). Contains gluten. No substitutions.
Order deadline is Thursday, May 26th at 10am or until sold out. You can order through our website or send us an email at email@example.com Pick-up is in Appleton on Friday 5/27 from Noon to 7pm. Yum!
Rainbow sprinkled vanilla cake and perfectly crunchy cake crumbs in each layer of our tangy cream cheese frosting.
Order this cake as pictured, add a simple cake topper, or we can cover it with more cream cheese frosting and decorate it to your match your theme. It is perfection.
You can still find Funfetti on the menu if you prefer the classic version. It is ridiculously delicious too.
Wow! Two months of selling cakes and cupcakes and you all have kept me busy. I am so incredibly grateful!
Let's start with the fun news first! We have added two new items to the menu. Our 24Carrot Magic cake is so special- roasted carrots, cinnamon, cardamom, toasted walnuts, and a hint of lemon. Covered in our sweet and tangy cream cheese frosting. AND we have our Big Fancy Brunch Biscuit (found in the specialty cakes section). It is a JUMBO buttermilk biscuit that is deliciously buttery and sweet. Fill with your choice of a lemon curd, seedless raspberry jam, or a sweet cherry filling. Serves 10-12!
And the boring news...working full time at my "real job" and giving 120% of my love into Give Mac has shown me my limits. I will be taking a maximum of two orders per week. No booking is too far out and no booking is too near, but when I'm booked-I'm booked.
I am so excited to continue to bake for you. So excited.
It's official- cakes, cupcakes and smash balls are here! Even though macarons are still on hold we've managed to make lemonade out of lemons. Well, cakes out of macarons.
See the new tab for the new menu and "in progress" cake/cupcake flavor list.
Orders will be very limited so please book early. Appleton pick up is preferred and I will be working on delivery fees. If you have questions just reach out. I'd love to work something out.
Yum and fun and some oooooooh la la!

"I have not failed. I just found 10,000 ways that won't work." Nikola Tesla
Hey, it's me. Although you don't really know me yet. My name is Cassandra and I'm the owner of Give Mac and the only person behind the scenes of all those cute little French desserts (besides my husband who has been a trooper with taste testing countless amounts of fillings).
Macarons are hard. Vegan macarons are straight up rude. “Fake it till you make it” was working, but behind those scenes...I'm tired. And sick of wasting products hoping it's going to be a "good batch day.” Something needs to change if I’m going to grow and continue this dream.
The change? I'm currently waiting on a new protein to replace my aquafaba and it should be more reliable. Unfortunately, it won't be delivered in time for me to practice and confidently promise you all perfect Valentine's Day macarons.
So, here is the good news...I love to bake. Making a cherry pie over Christmas for family and baking birthday cakes for a couple of friends helped remind me why I started this whole journey. I know my flavors are amazing. I know you can confidently share my desserts with friends and family who aren't vegan and they'll love them just the same. I know I want to continue to "give back."
Please stay tuned for a different type of Valentine's Day baking from yours truly, Cassandra (aka Give Mac).
When referring to Give Mac I often say "we" and "us." Now, this is a one woman show...but, it is also most certainly NOT a one woman show.
I can't thank YOU all enough for your purchases, your feedback, your support, and I am so so so grateful for your extra donations. WE did this. $565 was donated to HarborHouse. Incredible. Thank you.
Harbor House's mission is "to empower communities to be free from domestic abuse through safety, knowledge, and engagement." Click here for more information.

Oh Em Gee. I'm so excited to announce a collaboration with the seriously fantastic, Lissie's Dulce Desserts. Order a treat box from her website. The boxes include her pie bars, doughnuts, cupcakes, and FOUR of my macarons. The most delicious of delicious combinations! You won't be disappointed. You can pick up in either Milwaukee OR Appleton on November 24th. PERFECT timing to impress your Thanksgiving family. Send me a message if you have any questions.
Choose your theme: TRICK (It, the horror movie) or TREAT (more kid friendly). Order deadline is October 24th. Connect through Instagram or email firstname.lastname@example.org to place an order. Let me know which theme you'd like and how many boxes.
Finally in my updated kitchen and I'm SO ready to bake for you. Now accepting custom orders!
The good news is we moved into our new home! Bad news is our kitchen needs to be updated. I'll be taking an unexpected pause for the next couple of months, but I hope to be back Fall of 2021. In the meantime I'll be perfecting the fillings and testing out some new ideas. Stay tuned!
Thank you for all of your custom orders this month! It was so much fun to bake for you and have you trust me with your special occasions. I'm happy to share that $125 will be donated to Autumn Farm Sanctuary. They are 100% volunteer owned and operated! Visit their website to donate, volunteer, or provide some supplies from their wish list. Also, you can follow them on Instagram to see all the amazing animals they've rescued and care for.
You helped raise $127! Proceeds from this Variety Box Event were donated to Metcalfe Park Community Bridges. Their Mission: “We are building a robust and thriving Metcalfe Park neighborhood in which residents are safe, connected to each other and the community; provided access to educational, economic and civic engagement-related opportunities; and a community that celebrates the diversity and culture of the area.”
