Beauty and the Beast

Posted by - Miss C @ Tête-à-Tête 4 Food

Macaroons look simple, the ingredient list is not long or peppered with unusual things BUT do not be fooled they are tricky things to make! However I found them really fun to create!
These are my Raspberry and White Chocolate macaroons I made for Valentines Day this year, hope you enjoy!



As a child I loved watching Disney movies and Beauty and the Beast was a favourite. From this day I still remember the rose in the jar and my panic stricken grief as the petals started to fall one by one. I thought it would be a lovely theme for my Valentine's post. What I thought of love as a child was influenced a lot by the fairytale styled Disney films and hopefully this post portrays the sweetness and innocence of love. I sometimes still believe in fairytales!

So, I have made raspberry and white chocolate macaroons finished off with roses for decorations. The rose in the glass jar is my inspiration and I was sure to feature it as part of my presentation. I hope you enjoy this post and cherish your childhood memories.

Thanks everyone!

@Lin, these are the Raspberry and White Chocolate macaroons I made for Valentines Day this year, thats why it was so fast! I tried making them all of last year and they just never worked, so it takes quite a while!

I have made macarons before and they are VERY tricky. I have researched them on google and tried to find how to make them look like the perfect ones you see in magazines. Despite all my research I haven't been able to master the macaron. Yours look amazing!

What a fun presentation! I am interested in making macaroons too. We had the most delicious macaroons at Laduree in Paris. I've wanted to bake some up since. Thanks for the inspiration!
