I don’t actually really want to write anything else in this blog post except I MADE MACARONS! I MADE MACARONS! I MADE MACARONS! I MADE MACARONS!
And ain’t they just the most adorable things you’ve ever seen??
I mean, a talented baker I am not. I may appear to bake a lot, but really, it’s a sham. If you scratch the surface, you’ll find that my recipes are truly for the uninitiated, amateur baker. I am full of simple, fool proof recipes like errr, making ice cream in three easy steps!
What I am not is a skilled baker WHO CAN MAKE MACARONS! Until now, clearly.
I mean, how these little blobs…
… can turn into this…
… and then this!
Gawd I am fucking impressive. Hello world, I have arrived.
Or maybe I fluked it. Whatever works.
I swear I have never been so impressed with myself and it sucks so bad that Panu’s on vacation (road tripping through Colorado and Wyoming) because there’s no one to witness my absolute brilliance! To rectify this problem, I took a photo of my macs and posted it on facebook and seriously? You’d think these macs were the half naked body of some hot guy (current crush: James Franco YES PLEASE) because all day at work I’ve been behaving like a lust-lorn teenager sneaking glances at my own fricking macarons, and shutting facebook before anyone catches me.
It’s embarrassing how in love I am with my gorgeous, perfect, tiny little macarons.
And oh the feet. The Feet! I didn’t think I had a foot fetish til I met these little feet… and non macaron people will have no idea what I am talking about and now I sound like a proper dirty 31 year old woman.
Ps. James Franco in Eat Pray Love. Can’t wait!
