French Macarons

Hello friends! Hope everything is going well with you :)
The last few days I've been making French Macarons.
I ruined a few batches and finally I found a wonderful and very detailed recipe
by Stella of BraveTart. And now I'm oh so happy! La la la!!!
Thanks a lot Stella! xo
These babies are really delicious and look cute too!
I'm not really a kind of girl who bakes but I really wanted to make these, because
they look and taste great!
OK, no more of foodie talk! I'll be back with some exciting art related posts ;)


  1. Dearest sweet afi, these Macarons look sooo yummie and i just love the gorgeous colors! Have a lovely merry happy firday and a beautiful weekend! Love to you!

  2. OMG! I want one of those! They look so light , yet sweet and delicious! look at their colors! It's pure art Afi,and this post is for sure art related :D

  3. Quelle merveille! Macarons are ma favorites! Never dared to try making them though. But these look perfect, mmmmmmm!

  4. These macarons look better than those at Laduree!
    The surface looks so perfect, are the shells really soft and chewy on the inside with a thin crust on the outside?

  5. These look amazing! I would eat these in an instant! Fantastique!

  6. Thanks a lot for your comments dear friends!

    Michele: If you were here I would have given all of them to you, not just one! Hugs! xo

    Savorique: Thanks a lot! Yes, they actually have a very thin crust on the outside and are soft and chewy inside...I stacked two baking sheets and used quarry tiles in my oven since I have a very crazy oven with fluctuating temperature. Other than that I just did exactly like Stella's recipe.

  7. Loved this post! The pictures are beautiful, I love the colours :)
    My daughter has been wanting macaroons very badly, thank you for the links to Stella's recipe! <3

  8. they look absolutely delish! You've inspired me to finally try my hand at them. Doubt they will come out close to this though!

  9. they turned out so pretty.. ill have to save the recipe for the next time i attempt macarons.. the first turned out good, just not as pretty.. yet <3
