My life in Macaroons

My life in Macaroons

I love Macaroons, so much that I got loads of little macaroon merchandises for christmas!!! If you do not know what they are, Macaroon s are a french desert that are made out of almonds and are one of the hardest things to bake. However I attempted to bake them with rose-water and butter cream centre.

When making Macaroons you have to be careful not to over whisk the mixture then it will come out lumpy. with that being said you also don’t want to under whisk them. You need to get it just right. ūüĎć. As you may have figured out I like baking but, Macaroons are surely one of the best foods to bake and eat. I love them because they taste so nice and look¬†absolutely wonderful.

Here is a link to the bbc food sight, this link is a recipe on how to make macaroons

My try on caramel

On the weekend my mother and I tried to make caramel. It was an interesting experience as I may of burnt it (I did). I was longing to make it for weeks, however ¬†we didn’t have time as we were busy.caramel.jpg

Caramel is boiled sugar (I know it doesn’t sound nice but it is) you have to boil it on a high heat then when it starts to bubble move the pan in a circle. If it is a golden brown colour then you have done better than me.

I will try caramel again but for know I will try and enjoy my burnt one, but for now I will buy it in the shops. any suggestions how to make it better.
