My Creative space - Macarons



I have packed up my sewing desk in the studio which housed all my hair accessory gear... so baking was the creativity of this week! I finally made Macarons! Not to be confused with Macaroons.



I was a little light handed on the colouring - they could have been pinker! Filled with white chocolate ganache - mmmm. I'm no Tartelette but man they were good and not bad for a first attempt I think! From this book. Oh and I piped them with a zip lock bag - snip the corner off and away you go!


More creative spaces over at Kirsty's.

Jennie said...

These look lovely! I haven't attempted them yet - were they easy to do??

Penny (Pocket Carnival) said...

Yum! You're making me jealous!

Rosalind said...

Did I mention they were DELICIOUS!! :-) Other recipes I have read say to rest them for one hour instead of the Womens weekly recipe which says 20 mins! A masterchef recipe I read also said to sift the almond meal 3 times which I didn't do hence the rough texture. Not too hard ladies - do it!
