Oh French Macrons...You are absolutely my favorite thing. But living in a small county outside of Manhattan, it's a lil hard to get them every day unless I take a train or spend $10 or more just to get over the George Washington Bridge. There is one mini bakery in Nyack, NY where the brave chef makes these delicate things every weekend. However, because I think he is the only one, it is nearly impossible to get one unless you are on line bright and early at 8am sharp on a Saturday. Well, um that it just not going to work for me, so now what to do?
I've decided that my first bakery marvel I'm going to try to make this new promising year is French Macarons. There is always a picture here or a picture there showcasing the beautiful colors they can come in or another brave soul who has attempted to make these lil cuties. I hope to be the next one.
Me circa August 2011 w/ my favorite Lime flavored macaron
I'm searching the internet for the perfect recipe and I have such high hopes for this project. I will also take a peek at what Martha Stewart has to bring to the table on this subject. Yes, I'm going to call learning how to make macarons a project because I've heard it is not definitely not easy. I'm hoping my new Kitchen Aid stand mixer will be able to help me out here as well. I will even take a peek at what Martha Stewart has to bring to the table on this subject. =)
Floating Bear Cupcakes I made for my Craig's Luau Family Party in 2012
I've always been the cupcake girl, making cupcakes for a friend's party here & there or small get together. I made those lil bears cupcakes up there and it was so much fun, but I want to branch out from my comfort zone. I want to give my friends & family options to choose. I conquered making peppermint meringues last month and now I want to push that envelope further.
Has anyone dared to try to make French Macarons??
If you have, do you have any tips for new beginner?
I'd love to hear!
