Step one ~ Push play on this video.
Wait for it. Wait for it... Now we are in business. Don't you feel like baking some French Macarons? I know, I did. And yes, we really did play the Ratatouille Soundtrack while baking this afternoon. We are nerds. But I love this song, so there's that.
We followed this recipe. Her macarons turned out lovely, so for fun we thought we'd give it a try. Syd and I both had the day off and were in the mood for some baking.
And then this is where it all went terribly wrong. I don't know what we did. After following the instructions, they still weren't cooked.
So we cooked them longer.
Then a little longer.
Half of them crumbled in the process of trying to figure out if they were, in fact, cooked.
This is what we got out of our batch.
|Six sad looking macarons|
And then this happened...
|I had to lick this out of my hand. It tasted good, but wasn't pretty.|
These others are on the verge of having breakdowns at the slightest touch. Here, have a macaron! If you try to pick it up, it will fall to pieces. Try to eat one off the plate and pass it around. Only gonna invite close friends over for that one. Epic fail! Womp womp womp.
Eh well, we had fun.
