If you're thinking of using this DIY wedding idea as a favor on your big day, it's important to distinguish between macarons and macaroons. The names may be similar - both derived from "ammaccare," which is Italian for "to crush," but there are several major differences when it comes to these delicious confections.

Specifically, a macaron refers to a meringue-based cookie made with almond flour, egg whites, and granulated and powdered sugar. The cookie is then filled with buttercream, ganache, or fruit curd. The delicate French treat has a crunchy exterior and a weightless interior. The chewiness gives macarons almost a nougat-like texture.

In contrast, "macaroon" is a generic phrase applied to a number of small, sweet desserts. The term is most often equated with the moist and dense coconut macaroon - composed of egg whites, sugar, and dried coconut. Coconut macaroons are often piped with a star-shaped tip and frequently dipped in chocolate. As it's known in France, the "congolais," or coconut macaroon, is often served during the Jewish holiday of Passover because it contains no flour.
