bubblegum macarons

It's been a while since I've made macarons. Well, not really a while - a few weeks - but it was enough of a break to get me excited about making them again. I even got to have fun with the flavours this time around. 

I prepared them according to the French recipe and they came out beautifully. I used powdered food colouring in the shells and saved the flavour extract for the filling. Care to guess what it was?

I'll save you the suspense - it was bubble gum! Delicious, delicious bubble gum. Each bite tasted like a trip back to childhood where I would personally challenge myself to chewing as much gum in one mouthful as possible. Turns out I could chew a lot of gum.

Packaged and ready to serve!
