I've never tried making these and I doubt I ever will.  We were told they were on their way out of fashion now on our tour of the Adelaide Central Market during the forumfest last year.

Oh WHEW thank God, I will consider these completely off my "to attempt" list.  All that trouble to be out of fashion? No thanks!

(A part of me may hang on to a shred of macaron maker envy, I really do love eating the perfect soft ones with amazing flavours)

A good macaron is ever so tasty. We had some from Adriano Zumbo's when we were in Melbourne last year. They were truly delicious. Every other one I have eaten is inferior to these.

I hate being beaten by them Laura but after each fail I wait longer before the next try. To get the hard outside shell, then the soft crunch inside, with the perfect filling isn't easy.

More on these little buggers here.

I only did it once because smarty pants Helene told me I could never master it. ROFLMAO! finally sent the macaroon pan to someone who could actually use it!!

Total waste of time these things. I dislike almonds anyway.

Laura TO I had the same outcome as you...perfect looking with 'feet' and all, but hollow on the inside. My DD also enjoyed piping unusual shapes and they had feet too...I've told myself I'll try them again with my Kitchen Aid to see the difference and then I will give up.
