DIY | Laduree Macaroons

Psynopsis DIY Laduree Macaroons
Okay, this was a learning experience because a) lemon macaroons are supposed to be yellow (but what can you do when blue is the only food colour you can find, hidden in some dark corner of the kitchen cupboard?). b) One should definitely use a different nozzle – mine turned out more meringue than macaroon. c) If you want to call yourself a true confiseur you better not follow my smudgy example. BUT d) they are absolutely delicious and vanished quicker than it took making them… Though I'm quite tempted to next time just buy them.

You've been busy baking I see;-)
Did a macaroon making course recently. They are quite difficult to make. I see you've done a fine job. I adore the colours.

They're going to take over the world, a new Macaroon shop has opened in Melbourne and you have to queue to get in, it's crazy town...I would scoff these in a minute!

Oh my goodness! I was running through Covent Garden with friends a few weeks ago (trying to catch the Tube) and I saw Laduree and squealed! I had no clue there was one in London. Shall we meet there? My facebook is acting funny and I've been trying to get a hold of you but my messages keep getting an error.

these look soo yummy. i love the colors of these..
but i'm actually not a fan of macaroons- though i wish i were simply because they look so good.. could have them as a decor in my home rather than eating them.
Hope you're having a wonderful summer darling
