I'm so inspired by all these beautiful baked goods that I see when I'm out and about or those that I see on the internet displayed on Instagram, Pinterest, etc. The whole beauty of the items are what inspire me to create them. Sometimes I'm not always up for the challenge especially if the ingredients are not already in my house or if the process takes too long. Then I remembered, you're never gonna get anywhere if you don't try something new.
Anyways, I watched numerous video tutorials on the process of making macarons and then I was able to compare them all to find a process I thought was best. To be honest, I had to watch the videos MANY times too because watching a video helps you understand the consistency of macarons during macaronage which is super vital in making successful cookies.
I used a template and placed in under my parchment paper. Google "Yumarama Macaron Template" to find the template I used.
These light blue macarons (yes, I called these ones macarons) were my second attempt to macarons and they came out BEAUTIFUL. Everything about them were pretty right in my perspective. I even used a little bit of coconut flakes to sprinkle over them prior to baking which added a nice touch. Tip: Do not overbake if you put sprinkles of anything on top of they will just burn and become discolored. I made a cream cheese filling for these because I knew it would be firm enough to last as a filling but it was a little too sweet (it is like the cream cheese topping on a red velvet cupcake).
I'll think about posting the recipe/process I use to make the macarons if people start asking me. But for now, just admire the pictures with me.
