Macaron Challenge

A macaron challenge poses all sorts of problems. People think that macarons are hard to make. And before this challenge I would have agreed. But I have learnt the perfect method and now make these for special occasions.

Gaby of Tastes and Treats posted about Macarons. She has never tried to make them, and from the comments it seems she is not the only one. PinkPolkaDot suggested a Macaron Challenge be issued, and so, here it is. I have embedded two files into this post – Macarons step by step is a 2mb file and is a step by step instruction demystifying the making of macarons by Helen Dujardin. The second one is a MACARON TEMPLATE to help you along. Gaby has told me “the nice thing is that one does not HAVE TO eat them all in one go.. 🙂 but can freeze them without the fillings!”

Please track back to Gaby in your post, and let me know when you have tried these. As this is a BIG challenge I am going to give it two weeks as I know this is how long I will need. Closing date is the 8th of August. Closing date extended! You now have until the end of August to get this done.
