Macarons Workshop on 30 Nov 08

The macaron is a traditional French pastry, made of egg whites, almond powder, sugar and icing sugar. This sweet pastry is round meringue-like domes with a flat base and a cream or ganache is sandwiched between the pastry. It has become quite popular in Singapore in the recent years.

I'm not a fan of macaron but I think it's quite a good gift ideas especially for Christmas. I decided to learn how to make so i can make some for friends as gifts on Christmas. This afternoon, I attended a macaron workshop conducted by a wonderful & cheerful lady, Aunty Yochana who is very passionate in baking.

These were what I learnt this afternoon and some of the macarons that I brought home.

I enjoyed the class tremendously and also all the different types of cake made by Aunty Yochana that was served to us during the workshop. And we even get to pack home. I feel like I'm going for a high tea party instead of a workshop. Here's were some of the cakes we had:

Thank you Aunty Yochana for a wonderful afternoon and your delicious cakes!

According to Aunty Yochana, you need a lot of practices to get it perfect. I have not tried doing it at home...
