I am OBSESSED by macarons! Obviously they are an absolute joy to eat, crisp outer shells, slight chewiness and luscious cream centres, but they are so much more to me, the cute chubbiness of their shape and the myriad of pastel colours. Pantone have predicted pastels colours again for fashion this year ( more of that next week) so let’s embrace the pale hued wonders that are macarons!
My obsession started with my kitchen, and in particular these worktop protectors.
This lead to my entire kitchen taking on a full on patisserie theme, here is the top cupboards, the base ones are violet.
So that led to a whole bunch of macaron craftiness, these little macarons are a free pattern from http://www.craft-seller.com
These feltie ones are from Mollie Makes
This little keyring I made myself, inspired by the gorgeous ones that they sell at Laduree, the best macaron shop in my humble opinion! I might do a tutorial for this, if you want!
Finally, and before we suffer a sugar overdose, here is Nina Ricci’s perfume La Tentation de Nina which smells of …..a macaron shop! Laduree again to be precise.
So there we are my sweeties, now tell me what consumes you, what your passion is.
