French Macarons!


Do you guys remember my Macaron Cooking Class Giveaway with Mercedes?! Well I invited two bloggers (Mandy and Savannah) over to my apartment to have a cooking class from the VERY talented Merceds. This was seriously one of the coolest things I have ever done, and I think that you all need to look into having her come over and teach you guys!

 
 
 
 
 
 These green ones were my all time favorite... &not just because they matched my nail polish ;)
 
 I learned that you are supposed to keep them refrigerated for a couple days for them to taste their best.... do you know how hard it was to resist eating them? It was SO worth it though! Perfect I tell you. Perfection. Mercedes has nailed these!

She is such a good teacher and you walk away with your own box of cookies and a mix to try it yourself at home. I think we made pretty good students, even though we talked alot, haha sorry Mercedes!

The Macarons turned out DIVINE. I didn't want to share much with Trevor... they were just SO good. I would love to do a class like this again with my sisters or something :) So fun! Check her site out for the mixes she sells, and more info on her classes Merceds White French Macarons.

  1. Those look freakin amazing.

    I've never had a macaron, so I should probably just delete my blog and call it a day.

  4. Awesome! I've been dying to try making macarons. I decided I'd wait and make them on Easter, when all of the springy, pastel colors will be really festive.
    If only I was close enough to take this class first!

  16. Those macaroons looked delicious and so pretty! I had my first taste of macaroons when I visited Europe this past November. They were addictive :). How I wish you are from around here so that I could learn from you. I recently purchase a book on how to make them. We'll see heh.

  37. Hi there! Not sure if we're supposed to comment on your blog or The Vintage Apple's for the giveaway, so I"m doing both. :)

    First, in answer to your question: I'm a huge nerd, so my idea of fun when I'm alone is reading a good book or playing The Sims 3 and my many expansion packs. Haha. When I'm with friends, I like to do something casual like grab frozen yogurt or coffee and sit on a nice patio somewhere to chat.

    Also, these macaroons look amazing. I can't believe you MADE these. So cool. And I'm very intrigued by the Sopapilla Cheesecake link-within at the bottom ... headed there now ...

    Happy Hump Day!
