I first obsessed (yes, obsessed) about macarons over a year ago when the whole macaron mania began. After plenty of trials, not one batch was successful. Nope, not one. What came out of the oven were feet-less, cracked and/or hollow shells. So you can pretty much imagine my frustration. After my nth attempt and thousands of pesos later, I swore not to make them again for a long time and settled for staring with envy to those who got them right on FoodGawker and Tastespotting. Not to mention I got tired of eating them as well.
Until a few months ago before I set up Baking Between Cities. I also saw this post of Demystifying Macarons which prompted me to perhaps, try again. And I’m glad I did because today, I can finally present to you my macarons. Finally. Although they are not all perfect because some of them did end up with cracked tops, they all had feet. So I’m quite elated!
