Weekend Indulgence: Macarons!

Video: BritishLarder via YouTube

Happy weekend! I have miserably failed at making these decadent French macarons after several trials. Sadly, they all came out flat as a pancake and resembled thin wafer like cookies, instead. Younger sis ate a few and even claimed to enjoy it (or perhaps she was just being kind haha).

I was so frustrated that it has been quite some time since my last attempt at macarons. After stumbling on this awesome tutorial on YouTube, I may just be inspired once again. Everything about this video is lovely, from the pictures to the fun music! She also has an inspirational recipe diary, The British Larder. Looks like I have a new food blog to stalk;)

Have you guys tried your hand at macarons? Any tips for this frustrated novice?


  1. These look amazing - love the colour!
