I love macaroons!

Yep, I have a sweet tooth! Well, actually, I have an "anything goes" tooth... I LOOOOVE food! I suppose it is because food has such an important place in the French culture but really I love all kind of food: sweet, salty, refined, junk, rich, light, meat, cheese, veggies and fruits,... And when I am asked what I miss the most about France what comes to mind first are the bakeries but especially all the patisseries as I just can't seem to find anything similar to it over here... Don't get me wrong! I love my sticky toffee pudding, my vanilla slice or my apple crumble but sometimes only something "delicate" will do.

Every time I go back to my home town I make a "pit stop" at a particular bakery where I can find the most amazing French Macarons (macaroons) and stunning desserts. I have photographed their window on many occasions as they always offer different choices and was just waiting for the opportunity to scrap those pics. When I first saw the Sweet Nothings collection from Kaisercraft I knew that opportunity had arrived! I love this collection!

Here are a few close-ups. I loved creating this layout for the Merly Impressions Design Team and you can find more details about the materials and how I created it here. Don't forget also that the challenge to win a £20 voucher is still running! You can find it here! I hope this inspired you!

Ooh this LO is delicious... almost as delicious as those yummy-looking macarons! :D

I love them too. When I used to take business trips to the London office I used to go through Victoria Station and the Paul's Patisserie stand there sells macarons and I could never resist buying some on the way past! :lol:

One of my favourite things about when I lived in France was getting up on a Sunday morning and going down the road to the patisserie and buying some "délices"! :D
