a beautiful display of rows and rows of perfect macarons sprinkled with iridescent powder

flavors (starting from top): jasmine tea, passionfruit milk chocolate, salted caramel, and apricot pistachio...the flavors here are much more inventive than the traditional ones are Laduree

and finally...
Nutella Macarons by Christina

My homemade macarons are nothing like the exquisite light, crumbly, delicate Parisian macarons but there's something about watching the foot of the macarons rise in the oven that is just so satisfying.
