Snickers Macaron Closeup

Story and recipe on my blog.

    Xialou, actually I love this one also :), but the bottles and those sticks are distracting the beauty of macarons and cake stand itself. I would like to make it more simple with putting only the POI :). Anyway you did a great job for your macarons!

    Thanks Hannah & Asri! Asri, I totally get your point and thanks for your feedback. I guess I thought it would've been too dark and plain to remove all else. I wanted this one to feel more casual/natural.

    Is this first time with macaroons? I don't remember seeing a macaroon pic in your album before. I find the sticks distracting otherwise I like the lighting, the oozing filling and the whole atmosphere.

    Thanks everyone! Harini, yes these are my 1st macarons! Took 5 tries to get them right but they're so tasty =). I see your point about the sticks. I was just trying to stay consistent with the set-up I already had up with the sticks holding up the banner.

    Love the lighting and the cake stand - I'm stealing it. I would agree with Harini that the sticks are distracting.

    Thanks, you all!

    Martina it's actually the pot that some fancy yogurt was sold in from a bakery in China when I was visiting my family. I washed it out and dragged it back to the US haha.
