In celebration of their 11th birthday, Amélie’s is re-releasing a special edition birthday cake flavored macaron with proceeds benefiting three non-profits.

[CHARLOTTE, N.C. | ROCK HILL, S.C. | ATLANTA, GA – September 5, 2019] – Amélie’s French Bakery & Café, a French-inspired bakery known for their pastries, savories, specialty beverages, and eclectic decor, will re-release their limited-edition birthday cake French macaron in celebration of their 11th birthday.

As part of their commitment to support the communities in which they are located, Amélie’s is donating the proceeds from the sale of the Birthday Cake macaron to three non-profits. The non-profit beneficiaries include Community Matters Cafe in Charlotte, Miracle Park Rock Hill, and Atlanta Community Food Bank

“We are grateful for the support our communities have given us, and we want to celebrate them, the best way we know how – with something sweet!” says executive chef and operations director, Mary Jayne Wilson. “We chose a fun flavor to celebrate our birthday and our amazing communities.”

These limited-edition macarons are only available from September 9 through October 13 in all six locations. The birthday cake macaron features two white cookies with sprinkles and birthday cake flavored buttercream in the center. They are gluten-free and can be pre-ordered, at least 48 hours in advance, by calling the customer’s bakery of choice. There are no maximum quantity restrictions for pre-order.

“Our entire team takes pride in giving back to organizations committed to making our community a better place to live, work, play, and learn,” shares Joannah Long, marketing manager. “Our goal is to make a bigger impact this year than we did in 2018 when we celebrated our 10th birthday raising over $25,000 which was divided among several charities.”
