RedPawPaw | Box #1 - Review Part III

June 2014 Selection

Here I am back with some more reviews :)

I made the Adriano Zumbo macarons on Thursday, in preparation for a sewing playdate on Friday (FNwF - Friday Night with Friends)

I must say, I don't like passionfruit and didn't like it even more after making these macarons :(

The packet mix was easy enough to use - my only criticism is the print on the back of the package was very small and very fine ........... made it very difficult to read, and the almond meal was difficult to sift :(

Anyway, I made up the macarons and found the smell so overpowering that I didn't even bother mixing up the filling in between, I just put them all in the bin.

but here is a pic of them just before I put them in the oven :)

So then, I really needed something nice for my FNwF, so I used my tried and true Triple Choc Brownie recipe - this one is made from scratch, and never fails me :)

  1. Such a shame you didn't like your macarons! I haven't had the time to use it so I'm crossing my fingers I'll like it. But I guess with all the other goodies you got in your box, one unliked item is still pretty good!
