I love macarons. Not only do they taste great but they look so pretty, too. Being gluten-intolerant it is also a delight to be able to go into a patisserie and be able to buy something!
When it comes to making them, I get a little nervous as they can be so tricky. Having recently been given an aqua Kitchen Aid for Christmas/Birthday by my adorable parents, I really wanted to give macarons another go.
There are many great sites giving advice on how to make them so they turn out great and one of the tips that is often recommended is heating the sugar first. So, this time around I melted the sugar and used my Kitchen Aid to whisk the mix. Definitely the best so far!
