Try saying the title to anyone and you will probably get a puzzled look.
But when you tell that to a tired baker who is bringing out her 294th batch of freshly baked macarons and praying madly they turn out okay, it all makes sense.
I've read enough horror stories online about baking macarons - shuddering tales of shells sinking in the middle, uncooked in the middle, cracked collapsed weird lumps. (google 'macaron fail' and you'll know what I'm talking about)
So I'm sticking to baking miniature macarons. Thankfully they have always turned out picture-perfect so far, hooray!
Everytime I make miniature food, I try to make some kind of miniature packaging for it. Sometimes they are little grocery bags, sometimes burger boxes, this time though it was just a simple white box. I decided that the macarons were fanciful enough to just sit pretty in their clean boxes.
This batch of lavender and rose macarons has a diameter of about 1cm, and was sculpted in 1/4 scale and fits MSD dolls. They are already on their way to Finland, but if you would like your own, just click on the Shop link on the tabs above!
