M is for...

Monumental failure. I should done more research on what I was getting myself into. Or rather, what the Lovely Lady Baker was getting me into! Yeah, epic fail, for sure.

I did do a tiny bit of research after the fact. I do believe that I:

1. didn't beat my egg whites long enough,
2. didn't bake the shells long enough, and
3. have an oven that heats unevenly.

Needless to say, because the shells didn't work out, I didn't bother making the cheese cream buttercream filling. So we've been eating a lot of bagels lately...

Anyway, here's photographic evidence of my sad attempt at making macarons. Warning: it isn't pretty.

I might just stick to buying them...
