Show of hands, who here thinks baking #macarons is NOT fun? Me neither! (and also taking their pictures!) No matter how macarons recipe is ridiculously easy, it's a trap! You have million factors that can easily screw your macarons up starting from your oven, humidity, over or under beating the batter, drying your macarons, tapping them like your life depended on it, and ending with the quality of your #almonds and powdered sugar! I I tried making some #oreomacarons and they all cracked. I blame my oven and being impatient but it's my first time so I'll cut myself some slack. So what to do, what to do? Treat them as meringues, add some ganache, #chantillycream , dried #cranberries , put them in tumblers and they are good to go! I hate waste as you know so I had to figure something out. Taking the pic wasn't a picnic either, I mean getting the right aperture with the right manual focus in bad lighting and no good backdrop is tricky! It also takes about two hours but I ain't giving up! Not in this life time . It's snowing again in #london so I hope you folks are tucked in with some hot soup. What a Sunday it is, no?
