How much notice do I need to give you for an order?

We like to have a week's notice for all orders, and more time for those orders around a holiday time. Our best suggestion is to contact us as soon as you know your event's date. 

Do Bonne Vie Macarons' desserts contain nuts and dairy?

All of Bonne Vie Macarons' desserts are made with almond flour and some of our macarons and fillings contain nuts. Nuts are not part of every recipe but trace amounts of nuts or nut oils can be in any of our products. Also, most of the fillings found in our original macaron flavors contain cream or butter. We recommend those with nut allergies refrain from eating our products.
