This is a big occasion for me, as it marks the first time I've been paid for something other than what I have been trained for (yes I still have cold hard cash sitting on my table, not willing to spend it yet!) I have always been more into maths and science in my studies and chosen career, so to get paid to do something creative gives me a real buzz! I'm pretty sure the recipient of these macarons is a follower of this blog, so Happy Birthday to you (you know who you are!) and I hope you enjoyed them!
I also had a little fun and made some of the Salted Caramel ones into Hello Kitty macarons after spotting them here. The ears were made by teasing out a little of the macronage with a toothpick after piping. Kitty's bow was made by "gluing" 2 heart shaped sprinkles onto the macaron with some Butter Cream. The rest of Kitty's face was drawn on with food coloring pens that Hubby hunted down for me during his lunch break.
