    i’d go with quality. it’s kind of useless to have a lot if they aren’t that good, people won’t want more.

    I agree with artbee. Plus, since you are already having cake and a candy buffet, two per person is more than enough!

    I don’t think I would eat 3 of them (especially if you’re having a dessert buffet and serving dinner as well)!  Go for the fresh ones.  🙂

    I would go with fresh, just because it is only 10.00 over your budget, and they would no doubt taste better. Quality is such an important factor when feeding your guests!

    Ugh now you got me wanting to go on over to Bittersweet Bakery to get some!  Anyway you can try them both before you decide?  Fresh is probably better, but I had the refrigerated boxed ones at Starbuck’s around the holdidays and YUM-O!

    For a number of reasons I am considering making this same order. I am 99 percent sure based on the prices that you’re talking about ordering from Galaxy Desserts. They are the suppliers for mail-order macarons from Williams-Sonoma. So you can test the quality by making a small order there, or by reading reviews. Macarons do freeze pretty well. Keep us posted!

    I would go for the fresh-made ones. Even though you’ll end up with fewer macarons, you’ll still have at least 1 per person (with some left over) and you’re serving other desserts too.

    If you do 3 /person you will have tons of leftovers. Absolutely do the fresh.

    Can you try out the frozen ones before you make a decision? I am leaning towards voting for the fresh ones tho.  I can you tell you, having just gone to a wedding last night, between all the food and then the cake, dessert tray, etc, I was STUFFED and def would not have eaten 3 macarons! Although they sound delish…

    I would suggest seeing if you can try the frozen ones before making a large order. I know people in the restaurant industry who just bake frozen desserts for some of their events, and no one ever knows the difference! Also, if you do end up going with the frozen option, you could cut down your order (maybe to 2 per person) to save even more money and prevent lots of leftovers.

    I go with frozen because some people may not notice the quality of them…
