Mixed Flavour Macarons 1

French style macarons (not macaroons which are something completely different) consist of 2 extremely light almond based biscuits with a slight crust to the outer shell & a soft, just chewy center which encase a rich & luxurious ganache or buttercream.

Available in a huge array of flavours, they can be customised to suit any colour scheme, on this occasion I made a mixed batch of 7 different flavours which were:

Lemon macarons with lemon curd meringue buttercream.

Orange blossom macarons with dark chocolate ganache filling.

Vanilla bean macarons with raspberry white chocolate ganache filling.

Chocolate macarons with chocolate hazelnut buttercream filling.

Pistachio macarons with white chocolate & pistachio buttercream.

Caramel macarons with salted caramel filling.

Strawberry macarons with vanilla cheesecake filling.

More flavours to come....
