They might look like jewellery, but they're definitely edible. These mini chocolate bombs are packed with punchy citrus flavours, for a real taste explosion.

The mirror-glazed treats are the work of an Aberdeen café called Almondine, and they're sublime.

Aberdeen, Scotland, that is. Sorry, American cake fans. These shiny blue bonbons are filled with salted caramel, and there are mango and passionfruit ones in the background too. Delicious.

At first, the family specialised in Parisian-style macarons, but they've since expanded and now make all kinds of innovative cakes, pastries, and chocolates.

And their signature, crisp macarons make an appearance in a lot of their creations.

You get a selection of their most popular desserts: giant macarons filled with Scottish raspberries and crème pâtissière, chocolate domes, eclairs, and fancy tea.

The Williamsons were even asked to audition for the BBC's Bake Off: Crème de la Crème programme.

The buzz about the Aberdeen café reached the producers of the series, and they were asked to show off their beautiful, shiny, awesome cakes to the world.
