The war had a tragic end. All the macaron soldiers bled, and died.

HAHA okay, i know i’m being lame. Hahahaha. Anyway. I used the same recipe! Just that i replaced the cocoa powder with instant coffee powder which is food processed, because they are rather coarse! I brushed the insides of the shells with rum. Other that the maraschino cherry in the middle, rum and the coffee powder, everything is the same!

So far, i had all good reviews :D You guys have fun okay! I will try to keep up with my baking. Because school reopens this week :( And.. I’m falling sick, again. Ah bugger.

    I was just making a large researche on making macarons, ’cause I’m going to do my first atempt with them this weekend >.< I'm preparing myself to fail xD no, no, I'm thinking everything would be ok, hoping that my thoughts came true xD

  3. What a cute post! And a great idea for macarons too, though I’d probably blaspheme and go for a raspberry in the middle, since I’m not big on cherries :P Oh, and your cousin looks too happy for a war! :D

    • not a cherry fan either :( i only like dark cherries!
      but those cherries make them blackforest :P
