An afternoon macaron lesson

Today my dear former coworker Sonya of Frost Cake Co. was kind enough to come over and teach me the art of macaron-making. I can’t say I’ll be able to reproduce today’s efforts (for one thing, I don’t have enough Silpats or baking trays) but it was fun to get the experience and now I have a starting point to play around on my own.

Ready to go in the oven:

Thanks, Sonya!
