Tiffany & Co. Inspired Macarons - Run #2

It all started with this email from my friend Lara:

It was a good two weeks after I baked macarons for the first time that I went back to the kitchen to make them again.

I knew some way some how I could improve on what we did during our maiden voyage.

So glad I did.

The inspiration came from Tiffany & Co. (I adore this company) and I got tips from Hi Cookery.

I would like to add that researching different methods on YouTube and other blogging sites is extremely helpful.  Enormous amount of information is there for you to learn.

Here's a trick for you when you are piping your buttercream: use a star decorating tip.

When you sandwich the macarons, the star tip leaves a nice swirl design on the buttercream.  I only used the star tip because I was too lazy to wash my round tip, but I'm glad I did because it adds an elegant touch.  It's the little things sometimes.
