Macaroon fact: In 1852 a French baker baked the biggest macaroon ever. It was as big as the giant’s swimming pool in Jack and the Beanstalk stretching to the tip of the Eifel Tower. However, the baker got so into his baking, that he got trapped in between the layer of filling and the top half of the macaroon. It took handymen two days to saw through the macaroon and get the sugar high baker out.
