Birthday Macaron Madness!!

Yesterday was my friend's, Nadine, birthday and she lovesssssssss macarons. I love macarons too, but she is OBSESSED, yes obsessed, with them. So, unsurprisingly, she didn't want a cake for her birthday, she just wanted macarons =D I decided to bake rose lychee macarons (her favorite) for her and make macaron towers. Can't believe I'm saying this, but after baking all those macs, I think I won't be smelling rose water or eating macs for a looong time. I was thinking of making some bigger macarons and place them at the bottom of the tower, but it didn't work because the weight of the tower was just too heavy that the bigger macarons broke. In the end, I just gave her 2 different "cakes", one mac tower and one of my own version of Pierre Herme's big Ispahan.

I have been wanting to post something for the Mac Attack and now I finally got the chance because my creation this time kind of inspired by this month's Mac Attack. Yeay to my first entry :) I'm not sure whether they will show my post or not on March 1st but I'm just happy to participate. Anw, enjoy the pics below, til later ^^
