Almond & Ivy's Frequently Asked Questions

 

Are your macarons gluten-free?
Yes, the macarons are naturally gluten-free, but they are not made in a designated gluten-free kitchen.

Can I order any flavor macaron in any amount?
Yes!  Any flavors can be ordered in any amount - big or small.  Looking for a six piece box with six different flavors?  No problem!

How long do the macarons last?
Our macarons are best for up to 5 days if stored in the refrigerator.  They can also be frozen in an airtight container for up to two weeks, if needed.

How large are the macarons?
Our macarons are handmade and range from 1.75-2 inches in diameter.

Can your macarons be shipped?
We are currently only shipping during the winter holiday season.   Feel free to call or email for shipping info!

Can I customize macarons for my wedding/event?
Certainly!  We love working with clients to create the perfect dessert for their wedding/event.  From custom shell color and design to custom flavors, the options are almost endless!

How far in advance do I need to order?
If you are looking for specific macaron flavors, a notice of 3 full business days is needed.  There are times we may be able to accommodate on a shorter notice, so it never hurts to contact us and ask!

How many macarons should I order for my event?
We typically suggest 2-3 macarons per person.

Are your macarons and cookies made from scratch?
Yes!  Everything we make is from scratch.  We even go as far as to hand pick strawberries during peak season and preserve them for the strawberry macaron filling.  The only filling that isn't made by us is our Nutella macaron filling - because, well, sometimes you just can't compete with the deliciousness that is Nutella.

Do your macarons contain nuts?
Yes, all of our macarons contain almonds in the form of almond flour.  Other nuts that are also used in select flavors are pistachios, pecans, hazelnuts, and peanuts.  

Do your macarons contain dairy?
Yes, all of our macaron fillings have some sort of dairy product in them.  In the past, we have made some that were dairy free.  If this is something you are looking for, please give us a call or send us an email and we are happy to work with you!

Why are you only open three days a week?
During our summer months we are open at the shop Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, have a stand at the Farmer's Market on Wednesday, and Saturdays are reserved for the Saturday Farmer's Market, order pick-ups, and wedding/event deliveries.   We have decided to keep the shop hours (Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays) the same during the winter months.  It allows for less of a change for our customers, and it also allows us some extra time to work on some things we haven't gotten the chance to during the busy summer months.  The only employees we have are myself (Karli) and my mom, Mary.  We enjoy our small, family business and find this schedule works best for us!

Can I schedule an order pick-up on days you are closed?
Yes, definitely.  Scheduling a pick-up time on a day we are closed is as easy as giving us a call or email and letting us know what you are looking for.  Since we are such a small, boutique business, there may be days we are unable to accommodate, but will surely do our best to make a day and time work for you!  The only day we prefer not to host scheduled pick-ups are on Sundays.

Where are your macarons made?
Our macarons are made in our small shop in De Pere, WI.

Do you offer macaron making classes?
At this time, we do not offer macaron making classes.
