The aliens, Ted!

UFO sightings chez Kuka?

Well, almost! MY creative space this week (as so often it is) was the kitchen, which was the scene of a little macaron party!

I made a couple of batches to take to a dinner which ended up being cancelled.

But... there were no complaints from my colleagues when I took a boxful into work during the week =)

These little guys, from top to bottom in the picture down there, are:
- chocolate with orange cardamom buttercream
- plain with chocolate buttercream
- plain with orange cardamom buttercream
- mint with chocmint buttercream

I've had the same chocolate recipe work beautifully before, but these ones didn't quite work out right - no feet and cracked on the top. But, geez, they are so chocolately and TASTY!

For the others I used the 'simple' recipe from Syrup and Tang.
The recipe is given more as a formula, which I really like - not just on account of the science-nerdiness - you weigh the eggwhites and adjust the other ingredients accordingly.

And they worked out pretty nicely, I think ;o)
