French macarons are arguably one of the most difficult pastries to master. For Colorado native, Deviny Herrera, that level of difficulty piqued her interest. When I decided to start Black Knife Bakery, LLC (formerly The Macaron Shoppe, LLC) I knew one thing for sure, and that was the desire to stand out, to offer a different kind of macaron. One that is delectable like a chewy cookie with an abundance of flavor; a flavor that would not need second guessing, but one where the person knows exactly what it is. After sampling macarons that either had an overly crunchy texture and a flavor comparable to powdered sugar or that were like soggy mush, I knew exactly what I did NOT want to provide to my customers. We tend to “eat with our eyes” first, so a pretty macaron was just as important as the taste & the texture. I enjoy expressing my love for the art of macarons by producing everything from vivid colors to warm neutral colors and consistently testing out new flavors to add to my menu.
