They look pretty easy to make - don't they? It's just an iced cake with a bit of ganache poured over the top and a bunch of goodies piled onto that. Easy-peasy.
It's surprisingly tricky to get a good looking drip-effect, for one. Especially when you're doing it in 40'C heat! So mine dripped...dripped... and dropped..!
(Read about my first forays into macaron making, and the recipe I still use, here).
Despite that, it is definitely a style I'm going to attempt again. Just remind me to do it on a cool day!
See a great short video on creating a drip-effect by Renee Conner here. (Wish I'd watched that first!)
