Deliciously starting the week with a difficult task, I was adamant to at least have one batch of the Macarons right, out of the three that I baked. With lot of motivation from my Facebook friends and Polly, I did succeed considering this was my first ever attempt!
What I learnt from my experience with Macarons that no one will tell you:
Don’t ever grind the almond flour too much, it will turn into a paste.
Folding the batter just right is the most important.
Rest the beauties for at least 20 minutes before baking them.
Always use the top flame if you have a gas oven and keep checking every 3 minutes or this is what you will get!
As promised earlier this week about an Interview with the lovely Rou’a Wehbi from Rou’s Sweet Corner, I was very excited to know more about the person behind the baking of all those goodies I received last month (check out the review here).
Warning: You are now going to read a conversation that is highly sweetening, please make sure you have eaten something ( I am just kidding, go ahead, read it and over to Rou’a now).
I am frequently asked if I ever eat at home or do I even cook on a daily basis. As much as I love to visit restaurants and eat out, it is not always possible to be out there and YES! I do cook and eat at home. Eating at home also includes the home delivery from various amazing outlets in my area. On other occasions, I am spoilt by wonderful people like Rou’a from Rou’s Sweet Corner.
Rou’a is a home baker and has a variety from cupcakes to cookies, cake rolls to cheesecake jars and truffles. What started as a passion is now evolved to a business where she spreads the goodness of her love for baking to various homes. It is the personalized touch that she has given to each of the products on offer. Receiving an invite to sample the new products and provide an honest feedback was quite an honour and I couldn’t resist when I heard Carrot Cupcakes and Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies!
