a little bit of yum!

So I made french macarons yesterday - I have been practicing the art of making them for a few months now and can say that I have my system of making them 'down pat'. I make the version where the sugar is uncooked as I find the sugar syrup system is very time consuming. Here's a pic of the result - chocolate ganache in the middle of course!

  2. Hi Fiona, thanks for visiting! I did see your lovely macarons, I wish mine would 'grow' feet as big as yours - they look fantastic! I love the way you decorated them too - I have dust like that and always used it on cupcakes. I am keen to keep baking macarons and i want to try a few out this year and try to get them with vivid colours - lots of trial and error I think. I love your furniture too - especially the Christmas cabinet so chic! You've inspired me to repaint a chest of drawers that I painted years ago. Thanks for the inspiration and looking forward to more of your blog x Kate
