Are we talking about the coconut and chocolate cake?


Not really. Doesn't matter anyway, it's dead, dead, dead.

Why are they referred to as Macaroons? I've always been afraid to ask.

George Roon (1684-1743) invented a cake that he sold from his bakery for years before it gained popularity outside his local village. He was known as Mac to the community, so the name stuck and passed into common usage.

He was known as Mac because the village grew in size to be a town as the bakery expanded and due to his Rotary Club patronage he became a town official, which of course made him a burgher.

Yes, odd that one small, remote fishing village should give rise to two words which have attained global significance.
