Les petits macarons

I have been on a macaron baking spree. My brother got married last week and I made them for the wedding. Hundreds! They were up to their traditional macaron tricks- hundreds of them didn't rise properly in the oven due to one of a thousand potential trivial changes.

 
The end result was what mattered though. The duds were still delicious to eat! I ended up making a couple hundred more than first planned because of the ones that rose poorly. 

Flavors:
Pink: Rose water butter cream
Orange: Peach blossom butter cream
Blue: Chocolate ganache rolled in coconut
Purple: Blackberry jam made by the monks at St Tikhons
Lavender: Vanilla bean butter cream rolled in lavender flowers
Green: Peppermint chocolate ganache
Yellow: Lemon curd
White: Coffee bean topping with mocha ganache filling.

Phew!
