So first, I wanted to share my experience with making macarons... using egg whites that have not been aged...
I nuked them for 5 seconds at a time, for 20 seconds, in the microwave to speed up the aging process. Otherwise, the whites came straight out of the fridge, newly separated from the yolks.
I can't say they're perfect, but good enough to use.
The feed spread apart SO much during cooking, but the texture of the cookie was really right on.
I sandwiched them with lemon curd, and brought them to work. They were delicious.
And I made new earrings:
Large, beautiful, sterling silver leaves :)
And another one of a kind cuff set!
AAND... brought back a beaded turtle :D
Enjoy the photos of the goodies :)
In other news, congrats to MeiBelle for winning the random mask giveaway!
