I think I have fallen in love ... again ... only this time with the eye candy colours and sweet sumptuous taste of Macaroons. They have always been available in France in most patisseries but now seem to be available here in London in some of the more expensive food shops and cafes such as The Laduree Café in Harrods. I think they may have taken over where cup cakes have left off and appear to be the new 'style food', as I am now seeing them everywhere. Unfortunately they are terribly expensive, costing anything from £2-£3 each and upwards, so I thought that today I might just have a try at making some myself.
