Macarons 2.0

I decided to sell my macarons last month, the reason being I had too many macarons in the fridge, and I personally don’t think my housemate and I could finish them. I actually tried a different recipe for macarons, it wasn’t the same as last time, it was much more complicated. I had to use 200 grams of almonds instead of the usual 100 grams. That explained why there were extra macarons in the fridge. I thought no one would be interested in macarons, and putting a ‘for sale’ shout out on FB would only attract a few people. I was WRONG. At the end of the day, I felt guilty for all those people who I rejected and decided to make them my cute not-so-little macarons.
To all my customers out there, I hope you enjoyed my humble macarons. I am not Martha Stewart, nor Bakerella, but I have tried my best to bake the yummiest macarons. My macarons were all made with love, the sweetness of caramel and lightness of full cream. I want you guys to treasure every bite of them, because making macarons 2.0 isn’t easy. Thank you again guys for your support, gheee :) 
If anyone is wondering whether I still sell my macarons or not, the answer is YES. But I would only make them on request if your order is more than $18. How many macaroons will you get with $18? I’m selling 4 for $3. So do your math people. You can still however buy them in small amounts, but only if they are available. 
I had so much positive feedback on my macaroons! :D and that makes me excited and pumped to do it again! Some people were asking me how much I made out of this “business”. First of all, I’d prefer everyone to not call it a “business”. I would sell them at least for a dollar each, before I would consider it a “business”.. and the answer to that question is.. not much, sometimes I didn't gain anything in return ><
Okay enough with my frustration. Here are a few pictures that I managed to take the other day, I hope I can inspire more people out there to start making macaroons! Till then! XO!
