Macaron Flop!

©Kara Rosenlund
So, we all know that macarons are the new cupcake. People take them very seriously… like some sort of colourful culinary bling.
We also all know they are tricky to make and even something as slight as the humidity on any given day can deflate a batch of these pretty little things. Saying all of this I bring you Donna Hay’s Almond Macaron with Chocolate filling Packet Mix.
That’s right. My girlfriend Sally bought me this **packet mix** last week ( I know what you are thinking, but c’mon, if Donna thinks its ok, than its ok.. right?)… so I tried it out.
I think the low rate of success had more to do with me rather than Donna’s mix. Donna’s mix was brilliant, my results were poor. I don’t think we make a good team. Im going to give it another crack next week!

Eat Cake and Be Merry

Eat Cake and Be Merry… I sure will be doing that tomorrow… and you should too!
I have found lots of different shapes and sizes of baking tins for you to bake that perfect weekend cake in. I even managed to track down what I consider our ‘signature’ cake tin – the love heart… in THREE different sizes: small, large and extra large.. now that’s a lot of love in one cake!
See you tomorrow!
So excited!
