Lamb has made everything from macaroons shaped like SpongeBob SquarePants and unicorns to those that represent sunflowers and the Mario brothers.
I love a good challenge," Lamb explained.
She wasn’t always a baker but became obsessed with macarons five years ago after having one in the mall.
"I just kept trying to perfect it and didn’t give up," she stated.
