Macaroons

Is it just me or is the world going macaroon crazy? Cupcakes are no longer the cake du jour, these delicate little sweets are quickly taking over the foodie world. Things stepped up a notch after Delicious featured them in the March issue and it seemed everyone in my office would bring in a batch on a Monday. (Not that I’m complaining…)

This weekend was my turn. I must admit, tales of macaroons sticking and generally not working had me a little scared. Happily, the Delicious magazine recipe worked well, seeing the adorable little things is enough to make you fell super accomplished in the kitchen.

Admittedly, there a few tweaks to make, mine didn’t look quite as smooth as those in the recipe, so I’ve done a little research and found some¬†seriously¬†beautiful recipes to try next (I’ll keep you posted). ¬†Either way, give the recipe a go and feel like a domestic goddess…

(Ps. you’ll need a 1cm plain piping nozzle to make these, I got mine here.)
