Macaron 17: Macaron For The New Year

Week 17 December 28
Macaron 17. Raspberry Macaron with Champagne Mousse. A macaron fit for the new year. Like drinking chambord in champagne. I am really fascinated by the mousse. It is very very rich and has a slight alcoholic taste. Champagne is my favorite alcoholic beverage and how can you beat raspberries. The macaron color is also perfect! I love this macaron, a holiday must!

Macaron 16: Vanilla Bean and Balsamic Cream with Strawberry Balsamic Buttercream

Week 16 December 21
Macaron 16 Vanilla Bean and Balsamic Cream with strawberry balsamic buttercream. A break from all the chocolaty treats this month. I wanted to slice a strawberry and add it to the middle but I did not have any so I decided to dust them with pretty gold dust. I love sparkle and I do love macarons so why not let them be friends. These treats are tangy and sweet and all around delicious.

Macaron 15 Chocolate with Mint Macarpone

December 14 Week 15
Macaron 15 Chocolate with Mint Macarpone. If there is any time of the year that calls for an over abundant amount of chocolate, now is the time. I know last week was also chocolate, but I felt that since its the holiday and chocolate is the quintessential over indulgent treat why not over indulge. This is is like an Andes Mint. Creamy and minty and I just adore mascarpone. Quite delish and I like the colors together.
