The fist time I tried to make macarons was about a year ago. Actually, I hate macarons as a hate marzipan because for me are the same flavour. But, truth must be said, they are so pretty, and small, and rounded… that I thought I should give them a try; even if it was just for the pleasure of photographing them.
Well, I tried and I failed. And mi competitive spirit yelled that that couldn’t be happening. So the nest 5 weeks I spent my free time baking macarons (or destroying them to be exact).
Now, a year later, I realised that the problem was my oven. We changed it a few weeks after my macaron catastrophe and I didn’t even thought about it being the main problem.
Now I know I can make them better and risk with colours and flavours. For now, I’m quite proud of my first modern and minimalist vanilla & crocanti macarons.
