We're heading to the country to see my family today - our first little road trip in our new car! I tried baking macarons for the occasion, but I'm still not hitting the mark. I'm hoping that gifting them to Julie Baby in the Hersheys tin she requested will disguise the fact that they're a little on the rubbish side. Their colour is all wrong, they're a little overcooked, and I can't see 'feet' anywhere. I'm determined to keep trying until I make at least one good batch, but it's rather tempting to retreat back to the safety that comes with baking cupcakes.
