At last! This was my fifth batch, third successful and edible. After almost coming to blows with an oven that wouldn't get hot enough, I churned these out on Monday and assembled them last night with help from Major.
Alas, my swiss buttercream is not as smooth as I would have liked, but it's a start. These are my Champagne Cocktail Macarons - champagne shells with raspberry cream.
More tonight. Still waiting for my UPS delivery of larger sheet pans, scale and food coloring. Somehow the box ended up in Harlingen, which is hours away. Tonight! Yay!
