A few days after the sugar attack, I've essentially regained composure and have since reflected on what a fun week it was working with confections. Note to self: better to create the sweets rather than consume them.
Turtles. Massive mounds of caramel and nuts smothered in chocolate and topped with hazelnut crunchies and cocoa nibs.
Vanilla and Fleur De Sel caramels. Every single ray of sunshine captured in little paper satchels. I'm usually not a caramel girl but these were the devil!
French macaroons (or macarons). Yes, I took the exact same photo that no less than 2,169 other people have taken of the much loved macaroon. I'm sure you'll forgive me.
Some sort of macaroon flavor combo which was rather tasty. We had so many combinations of macaroon shells and fillings/ganaches, it made my head spin. I just know they were pretty and tasty. Do you really ask for anything more?
No more sugar for me! At least that's what I say until I approach next week which will be plated desserts. Stay tuned.
