Macarons vs. Cupcakes, Redux

macarons-payard-150.jpgWho's the latest to declare the trendiness of macarons? Why it's New York pastry chef François Payard, the man responsible for organizing Macaron Day. And he talks some smack on cupcakes: "The new trend is the macaron. It's become very big. The cupcake has stayed, but it's not my favorite thing to have. I find it very sweet, but I think the cupcake is good for the kid market, while the macaron is for the everyday woman because it's small." [Village Voice]
