More Macarons

Last week I was lucky to enjoy my first birthday as a wife (:P) with my lovely husband and the company of my Aunt and Uncle who traveled up from Cirencester. I am also fortunate to celebrate my birthday in the same week as my Mum so there is usually a family get together and this year was no exception with a beautiful trip to Inverness. It was also the perfect excuse for me to cook 150 macarons to accompany our plentiful cups of tea and coffee!!

I made two flavours – Orange and Lime.

Here's one I made earlier….

Mademoiselle Macaron!

Last night I had the opportunity to join 5 others and attend Mademoiselle Macaron’s first class at the Edinburgh School of Food & Wine! It was lots of fun and Rachel is a natural at teaching.

During the class we got taught how to make the following flavours:
– vanilla
– rose
– chocolate
– pistachio
– orange

I was given the task of making the orange variety and they were super tasty. I know what I will be doing this weekend…. 🙂

Another attempt at macaroons but with a new oven – not as successful as my previous batch but I will need to persevere 🙂
