I remember making my first batch of macarons six years ago as a welcome home surprise / birthday cake replacement for my older sister. I knew she would find the cute, round, colorful bite size cookies adorable. After days of research, painstaking work and grueling sweat, I attempted making 6 different colours and flavours. Needless to say, I failed. . . and ended up having to make that birthday cake.
Being a person who loves to take on a challenge, my failed attempt made me want to strive to perfect this classic French dessert.
Over the years, I’ve continued to experiment and develop my macaron making skills, working with different flavour combinations and colours at every possible occasion (pumpkin spice macarons at Halloween, peppermint chocolate at Christmas, matcha green tea for weekend… you get the idea…). Thankfully my friends and family enjoy eating them as much as I love making them. We thought it was time to share the love.
