The other day (all clad in my new-but-vintage pink polka-dot skirt from the darling Ms. Ashley Ording) I met up with my lovely friend Sonja, to have a macaron-baking adventure (she hadn't ever made them, and I hadn't in nearly a year). Our original plan was to bake rose-flavoured macarons with homemade lychee-raspberry jam in the middle, but our end result turned out to be a plain shell with a mostly-raspberry (and slightly lychee flavoured) center. They were still utterly beautiful, though, and were well worth the five plus hours of baking!
Sonja, after it all. x
Me, mixing! x
A few were messed up, but most of them looked perfect. x
(And on a gorgeous little French plate). x
The most delicious organic raspberries; I was almost sad to mash them into a jelly. x
