People who know me, know that I do not only crochet, but also bake pastry. I am in training to become a pastry chef (Hotelschool Spermalie, Brugge). I just love to bake!
Yesterday we made Macarons de Paris. Baking macarons is quite difficult and a delicate job. It can go wrong on many levels. Almost everything has to be done by hand. A good macaron can easily cost € 1,25 per piece.
I am very proud to show you the macarons I made in class yesterday and which, according to my chef, could be sold at € 1,25.
These pink macarons are filled with lemon cream. You can fill them with anything you like, and of course, you can make them in any colour.
