Jungle Macarons for Mac Attack 8




It was a excelent Saturday, the weather has been so good, that we went for the first time this year with our bare feet in the water and there was pleanty of people in the beach, I think from all over belgium people were there with family and kids to enjoy the once in a bloom moon sunny weather.

We only went for a hour as Shyama has to learn has her final exams are going to start soon.
On the way back met FIL who was walking the dog, not in the beach as from March till the end of September you may not take the dogs to the beach.
Well today it is back to bad weather the whole morning it rained and rained.

Now to the Macarons, they two Ladies at Mactweets have decided they will go Wild this month, so have choosen Jungle theme etc.... so I thought I will choose green colour for grass and brown for mud, well ladies that is the only thing i could cup up with :-)

I have used the same Ottolenghi recipie which till now has never failed for me, you can find here the recipe and step by step pictures. I used chocolate gnache well I let this sauce get cool in the fridge and then it tbecame hard so i could use it.

Good Monday morning Finla. We had 94F girl, so hot and humid, we were scared to go out but we did. Went shopping, had lunch and ran home. After two days of heat, it rained last night and it felt so good. It's 83F today, lot cooler.

Good luck to S. Tushar has a exam tomorrow, then no school until end of August. I get busy cooking lunch for 3 from today!:)

Both Macs look yum. I am baking Honey bread today, teaching Trisha some baking this year.

Your macarons are beautiful. They look just like jungle grass. I'm sure that they taste great with that wonderful chocolate ganache.

Cristina - TeenieCakes said...

Your macs have perfect pieds/feet and really like the shade of green you were able to get. It was a fun challenge this month and congrats on successful macarons!

Roopa said...

I always used to think Macaroons (are they different from Macarons?) involve coconut. I guess the extra 'o' gets deleted in Macarons and makes all the difference in the ingredients :) Lovely click dear :) I was browing thru all the other Macarons and wonderstruck how cute they look :)

Deeba PAB said...

Woot Woot... you were born to make macs Finla, yes you were!! Fabulous shells and colours. Love them - ROAAAAAAAR!! Thanks for joining us at MacTweets.

Sarah, Maison Cupcake said...

Wow these look truly jungle like - I haven't done any macs for Mactweets this month but I am a fan of that Ottolenghi recipe. As you say it's pretty fool proof.

Chef Dennis said...

gorgeous macarons!! I love the idea !

Cristie said...

Your color choice and name are perfect- Jungle Macarons! They look beautiful! Finding feet has been a task for me as well.

Ciao Chow Linda said...

How beautiful are those macarons? Someday I will get the courage to try making these.

Soma said...

Syll said...

Finla, your blog is really a feast for the eyes (gorgeous pictures!) and from yesterday I already know your baking is incredibly delightful to eat too! ;-)
