Baby Shower Macs
For the latest mactweets mac challenge I wanted to make a macaron croquembouche, however I struggled with these macs, since it had been so long since I had made any, half of them bled together (piped too much batter) and by the time i got it together some of them started to wrinkle...they were also not the color I'd hoped so I ended up putting them on a pretty cake plate.

I also had trouble with my ganache, I tried using valrohna chocolate for the first time and it did some weird thing where all the oil separated out from the chocolate, so this is just regular semi sweet chocolate chips...but they tasted just like they should, so perhaps I'll save the croquembouche for another day. Actually I ended up making one out of mini pies for a different celebration instead.
