Tsum Tsums + Macarons = The Perfect Combination
When you’re an editor at Disney Style, you spend a lot of time on the Internet looking for things that are both stylish and whimsical. So, you can imagine our joy one day when we came across Honey & Butter Macarons on our Instagram. Adorable macarons made by an adorable Tsum Tsum super fan who sells these treats in an adorable Airstream? It seemed almost too good to be true, but when we went to visit Leanne and her husband, Pawel, at Honey & Butter Macarons, we discovered that the cuteness was very real.
Leanne and her business are like our dream Disney Instagram account in real life. From her light purple hair, to the overflowing collection of Tsum Tsums in her store, every inch of the Airstream is a photo waiting to be taken. And with fans lining up every day to get macarons, she and her husband have officially turned their baking dream into a charming reality.
We sat down with Leanne to find out just goes into making this delightful business a success.
How did Honey & Butter Macarons get started?
Back in 2014, I needed a change of career, a way for me to channel my love for French macaron and all things cute. The idea for a small boutique specializing in just these treats bloomed.

How did your find your location and go about decoration the airstream?
It was serendipity that we ended up inside the current Airstream. Location hunting was a frustrating process for us. Since we are a start up with no history, the hip and happening places didn’t have much faith in us. It was the previous lease manager of The LAB that offered us the Airstream. At the beginning, I had to look up what an “Airstream” is! However, we made it work. The decorations are constantly evolving as we find cute and interesting things along the way. You should have seen the inside at the beginning. It was stark!
Do you have a favorite macaron flavor or is it impossible to choose?
I love them all! We worked hard to constantly improve each of them. My absolute favorite though is milk & honey. It’s a flavor that I’ve been developing since the beginning and has been improved on by my husband. It contains a secret ingredient that I’m obsessed about.
How did you get introduced to Tsum Tsums?
A customer asked us to customize some macarons for her birthday and showed us what Tsums Tsums are. It was love at first sight!

What’s your favorite thing about Tsum Tsums?
My favorite thing about Tsum Tsums is while they are simplified, they still retain very recognizable details. And those little hands and legs… oh goodness, I’m completely smitten with that detail. Also, they fit perfectly as a macaron.
Who is your favorite Disney character and why?
My favorite character is Mulan. I’ve always liked her character even before the animated film came out. She’s an awesome lead with a good head and strong heart. I’m still waiting for Mulan Tsum Tsums! My husband, Pawel’s favorite is the Cheshire Cat because, he’s full of magic.
