Yay, Blue.  You've convinced me to give macarons a try.

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

i'm pleased to read that.

Not sure what recipe/recipe book you will use - but i can recommend a great little book called 

 

macarons - by Hisako Ogita.

 

You can find it on Amazon here - http://www.amazon.com/I-Love-Macarons-Hisako-Ogita/dp/0811868710

 

It has very detailed step by step stages and photos showing every stage all through the book - plus a great range of flavours and colours to use.

 

Of all the books i have about macarons - this is the one book i keep going back to.

And it doesnt cost the earth - its cheap as chips actually thumbs_up.gif

 

Enjoy jumping on board the macaron train icon_smile.gif

WHAT???

I have no idea where you live - but i am having trouble following what you are on about.

There must be some rather shabby macs sold wherever it is that you live

 

Ever notice most people post pictures of intact macs? How many actually take a pic of the insides?

Bluehue throws her hand up admitting to this.

It would be like me posting a picture of a half ganached cake - who wants to see that - people want to see the end product.....

The see my creations in the raw so to speak when they come for a cake tasting.....

In her defense, there are some pretty ugly macarons out there. A local bakery sells these macarons that are completely hollow and you can see that when they post pictures to their Facebook. Not saying your macs aren't good Bluehue! But there are some macarons even in well known shops that are deceiving and shatter into a million pieces when you try to bite into it.

Yes, and i often wonder if half the population has no idea as to what a proper macaron should look like and taste like.  But then the same could be said for any food items. Half the population doesn't care what they get for their money - as long as they can shove something in their fat hungry mouth.  And as long as that half of the population continue to waste their money...shoddy bakeries will continue to sell shoddy macarons....and cakes ...and cupcakes...and fruit pies

My whole point was, it doesnt have to be Rocket Science  when it comes to learning how to produce a good macaron..... yes, i do understand the science behind baking..... i just dont get all caught up with the Rocket side of it....

 

But point taken ibeeflower.thumbs_up.gif
