Thought this rather apt for some to keep..  Bluehue   .
  But then on the other hand - what if you had a modern Bride who wanted Fondant? Would you turn that order away? Or if you had an order for a certain design - with a huge fondant bow....would you use it then? Just food for thought.....   I think the phrase *if your good at what you do - you dont have to offer it* is a long stretch. There are many famous cakers who offer both Buttercream and fondant.   Perhaps after you have tasted every Fondant there is to offer - you...
When you remove baking tray from the oven - place it on a cooling rack. The air will circulate and cool yor macarons down.
