First time I made macarons was with macha tea ganache covered in sprinkles. I was surprised. They were delicious.

That was all the motivation I needed to make another batch. Inspired and confident, the process was easier second time round.

The latest batch were decorated with spots of gold food colouring and filled with chocolate orange ganache.

They were left in the fridge overnight and bagged up this morning. My neighbour loved them 🙂
