Anyone fancy a French Macaron?
The famous French confectionery has arrived! Smooth, domed top, ruffled circumference macarons with their mildly moist and melt in the mouth sensation can now be found on ribbon!
Macarons are to the French, what cupcakes are to us. I have been asked for macaron ribbons ever since we started attending French exhibitions. I have tried for many years to come up with a suitable design, my last attempt over a year ago looked like cow pats!! Oh they did, so I gave up.
During our time in France over the Christmas holiday I had a brain wave - Why not photograph macarons. Super. Rachie and Mollie picked the macaron colours for me, a box of ten cost Rachie €14. She almost had a heart attack that's £1 per macaron she spluttered!
I was so eager to photograph the macarons that I went into the warehouse on New Years Eve - it was freezing cold as the heating had been turned off. But boy did I have fun, after a lot of work converting files and seperating layers to produce the artwork........look what arrived this week............
........the macarons in the photo are the ones on the ribbons, how wicked is that! We have two widths 25mm and a smaller 13mm, both are grosgrain ribbon and they are EXCLUSIVE to us. You can find them here .
If you would like to be one of the first to craft with this French delicacy then leave us a comment and have some fun. We will pick several winners on Monday..........Oo la la!
