I ♥ Macarons

Posted on January 20 2011

Have you ever made macarons?  I had never actually eaten a single one, but bought a macaron book a while ago intending to try them out.  Then, I think I got a bit intimidated.  I was starting to get the impression that there is some science behind making macarons and if you don't follow the directions exactly, they don't work.  And if you do follow the directions exactly they still might not work.

My mother-in-law is creating an Amy Atlas inspired dessert table for an upcoming baby shower, and we thought macarons would be perfect.  Our first batch worked!  There is a little "foot" and everything!

We used this book..

I don't feel like I've really dived into this book, so I hesitate to recommend it, but I love how its organized.  Macarons are just so pretty!  I want to make them in every color.

If you plan on trying macarons yourself visit our shop for your food coloring, flavoring and packaging needs!

    You can do it Sara! If you’ve got storms like we do this week it may be the perfect time to try some Macarons.

    Late to the party, but… I’ve been slowly collecting the materials and plan to take a shot at them soon. I’m very impressed with your results!!

    I feel the same way about this style of macaron. I have always been intimidated by them. I think it’s time to put the big girl panties on, suck it up, and make some delicious macarons.

    I also love the shout out to Amy Atlas. That woman is a goddess. I came across her website way back in the day, and I lost the website link in my “favorites”. I forgot about it until reading this post. Thank you!
