Macarons in pastel shades.

To everyone who voted for the macaron design, thank you! Unfortunately my printer is out of ink (again!), so I can only show the finalised design when I manage to get it up and running.

I didn't want to leave the blog stagnant till then though, so here are some photos of the macarons, without the boxes.

Macarons in baby colours are awfully pretty, don't you think?

I imagine the flavors to be raspberry (light pink), rose (pink), vanilla (white), purple (lavender).

You know how pretty food items always turn out weird-tasting. And I used to think rose-flavored macarons would taste strange too, but after having the luxury of biting into a Pierre Hermé's rose macaron (courtesy of my good friend who brought back a box from Paris), I knew I was wrong.

Mmmmm, it was so good. That wafery crunch, and the sweet taste of floral goodness. mmmm.

Here is my favourite item to make - a bowl of melted chocolate. It's all I can do to not lick that tiny spoon.

 A fat glass jar of assorted macarons - there's green tea and chocolate in there too, can you spot them?

Each macaron is 0.4cm in diameter. :)
