I have always been a fan of Donna Hay's cookbooks - the recipes I have tried are uncomplicated, don't use too many ingredients, and turn out as they should. It helps that they are beautifully styled too! So when I saw that my local grocery store had a few new packet mixes by Donna Hay, I popped one in my trolley to try. This morning, with the help of my two youngest (will I ever cook alone again?!), we made these almond macarons with chocolate filling, and they were delicious. I loved the way there was a little recipe card tucked in the box with photos of every step, although I still managed to fail the 'dropping and turning' stage - my macarons were not the perfect smooth rounds that they should be. Any tips for next time?
Joy tried one of the other mixes, the chocolate cupcakes, and they got rave reviews from her guests. Yum!
