It Was Wet Wet Wet.....

It's no joke when making macarons in a wet weather....I was chatting to Rima about our macarons yesterday, she also experienced the same...and coincidentally, we were using the almond flour purchased from the same bakeshop...err...oh no! Could it be the weather, or might it be the almond flour....I don't know...and as I said I was not going to fret and sweat the small stuff when making macarons...I dumped 4 out of 5 trays of macarons on Wednesday....they were for an engagement dessert bar, you see! And, I had to bake some more to make 100 macarons to be collected tonight (and I also finished all my stock of almond flour!)...but, thank god...here they are... a few of the 100+ macarons in yellow gold! Hmm...just in the nick of time, might I say...and this morning I woke up at 3 to make some orders for tomorrow, yup, they were ok! In pink and turquoise..pictures later, and as I was rushing to go to work, I dried the shells in the oven, like I told you before and they worked!
Almond Macarons with French Pastry Buttercream and fused with Lemon Curd (I made one you know...yummeh!), but the look of the macarons is not to my best satisfaction...."blame it on the rain, yeh yeh"...let's sing! Tqs Yong for this order, btw Yong is a wedding planner...
White Hyacinth at Floracafe...I tell you tt Razak really got class! I loved this from my days in UK......

So....that's it for the week, I'll reply to your comments later, and post pics of bakes and cakes I don't know when I will do, he, he...I will, I will...have a brilliant weekend...I will, the sun is playing and I have a Macaron Class on Sunday, woot!xox

Salam,
I'm Safura's sister and unlike her I don't bake a whole lot. Nonetheless I do enjoy the occasional baking. Anyhoo, I finally made my first batch of macaron last "very wet" weekend and unlike you, I don't have a huge oven to dry my trays of macaron. So what I resorted to was using a hairdryer. And what do you know? It worked perfectly. My fat lil' babies had feet!! BTW I use the Italian meringue method (I use Chuck Hughe's recipe) and IMHO it's much easier than the French method.
