101 Dalmatians Macarons - Run #25

I'm a Disney lover.

Time and time again, I've gushed about how it reminds me of my childhood and popping VHS tapes of Disney classics in my VCR.

101 Dalmatians and Cookies n Cream macarons only made sense. I crushed up some REAL Oreo cookies and added them to the meringue and reserved the cream center for the filling. Luckily for me, OREO released limited edition red-filled cookies and the red of the buttercream signifies the collars the puppies wear.

I adored these! I made them for a family party and I watched my niece sneak to the table to grab another one once she finished the one she had before. I'm glad she liked them!

U Can Has Cheeseburger - Run #24

These macarons were absolutely made on accident. I used a new recipe and I did leave the vanilla macarons in the oven a few seconds too long resulting in a now "toasted" vanilla shell. I looked for a filling that would somewhat hide the added on toastiness, and lo and behold, there was a chocolate cappuccino spread in the pantry. I also had little tubes of cookie icing on hand and viola!

Cute, yes?

Okay, I am admitting again that these were not my favorite in flavor (haha), but they are one of my favorites looks wise. I'm so shallow.

Hope you like them!

Happy New Year!

Hi everyone!

It's been about a month since I've posted on here...I'm sorry! Christmas and New Years and Keat's birthday totally kicked my boo-tay. I'm not certain if I've even fully recovered!

In the meanwhile, I have created a new Instagram and Twitter dedicated to my Mahal to the Macs posts.  I will no longer post macaron posts on my @joanneisafoodie handles.  So please feel free to follow me on these new ones!

Instagram: @mahaltothemacs

I will be completely honest with are probably going to see more action on those platforms way before I post anything on this blog.  I've really become a micro-blogger...not really into writing long-winded posts.  More impromptu, en minute...ya feel?

Salted Caramel Macs for my cousin in Texas
Thank you to everyone who have left me comments and even inquired if I took orders.  I'm limiting myself to close friends and family for now.  If you're a stranger, get to know me, follow me, let's be friends.  I'd rather serve those who I know on a personal level because they are more forgiving.  Ha!

Seriously!  I'm still too scared to serve people I don't know yet. That's one hurdle I must leap over before I start up any new endeavor that concerns the public.

I'm working on it!

Matter of a fact, I'm having my first "workshop" in a couple of weeks.  It's my first one and I'm nervous as hell.  I'm only having 3 "students"...and those "students" are my friends.  I need to practice first before asking perfect strangers to join in.

I hope everyone's 2013 is great thus far!  If you have any questions, you may email me at mahaltothemacs (at) gmail (dot) com or even better, message me on Facebook.  Until next time, take care!
