Real macarons are so delicate and hard to transport, plus, if you don't eat them they don't exactly stay well-preserved. It's good to have a set of fake, durable display cookies too.
I like that Easter is the one time of the year where macho dudes feel it's okay to embrace pink. Of course I wish this would happen all year round, baby steps. I'm willing to bet you could get a high pitched squee out of pretty much anyone with bunny shaped macarons though.
