Thank you all for your lovely comments on my earlier post re the wedding cookies i made for my friend. All of you are always so encouraging and kind with your words. Thanks! :D Without further ado, here's the second installment of the wedding cookies..this time round in the form of macarons. Macarons are also cookies correct? Not so sure..but i think so. As my friend's wedding theme is pink, so pink and white macarons (white looking more like champagne color actually) it is.. I hunted for THE cute ribbon for the longest time and managed to find the one that i like but it's sooo expensive...what to do, i needed to have that ribbon to complete the entire look for the macaron-lollipops, so not much of a choice.
Tying the ribbons was hard work..believe me..trying to get those little dots facing the correct way was a pain..i actually took 1 hour just to bag and tie 35 of them! Thankfully only 35 of them in lollipops..the balance 100+ are just normal macarons...*phew*..
I set these up for my amateurish photoshoot..hahaha. I can't decide if i like the dark background better or the white one. So i posted both here. As you can see, my Macdonald's coke glasses are in action again. Sorry folks, i really don't have any vase or nice flower pots or proper glasses at all.. i only have these free coke glasses..and i have a LOT..yup..i spend every weekend at Macdonalds because that is my son's favorite place.
In case you all wondering, i baked the shells before i left for my hols to Japan. I must say macaron freezes very well. Thus, I just spend the whole of last night after work filling them. Otherwise, i don't think i can do all 140+ macarons in just a night...and find time to take photos.. :D
I'm pretty pleased with how my macarons turned out..so sweet and pretty in pink and white. :D The pink ones are strawberry macarons filled with strawberry jelly and buttercream. The white ones are rum and raisin macarons filled with "rum-mish" raisin jam and rum buttercream. Both flavors are the Bride's favorite! :D
Merry Christmas everyone! :D
