So I made Macarons for the first time on thursday and surprisingly it came out perfect on the first try!
Made everything from scratch, even the fillings.
- Salted Caramel Macarons with Salty Caramel filling
- Matcha Green Tea Macarons with Matcha Green Tea Honey Buttercream filling
Honestly, macarons are really easy to make. A lot of the reviews online mentioned that it’s really difficult to make but I think if you whip up the egg whites well enough, the rest is a piece of cake. So if you have an electric mixer or beater then you’re set for a perfect batch! Unlike me, I actually had to whip up the egg whites and granulated sugar by hand and that took me like over an hour for each batch (sucks, I know). Other than that, it was a very simple recipe.
So simple that I decided to make another batch of the Salted Caramel Macarons today (gif of the process I went through to bake it above by me). Had to whip everything up by hand and again ;C But hey, it was worth it~
