But yesterday I stumbled upon a recipe that had lots of reviews saying how easy they were to make. So I went for it. I even coloured them (that seems to be the 'in' thing to do).
The result - they don't look as perfect & smooth as they do on the recipe's photo, but they taste gooooood and went down very well at work. I'm not a huge fan of the multi-colouredness either, plus I didn't choose the nicest of colour combinations - purple & orange (complimentary on paper but not in food).
Always fun to experiment though.
I got the recipe from here http://www.deliciousmagazine.co.uk/recipes/multicoloured-macaroons
