Ok, it's a little nuts and extremely bright; I used the wrong filling and my almonds were apparently too lumpy; BUT my first ever attempt at making macarons was fun. And sickeningly sweet. And fun again. :)
If you want to make macarons you can follow a macaron recipe like this easy one here. I'm sure they will turn out more perfect and pretty than mine!
I'm off to clean up the rainbow coloured carnage in the kitchen..
