My grandmother's Noritaki China Japan #5516 tea cup provides the backdrop to display this dainty pink macaron. This is the first time I have added color to the batter. The gel color was maroon. I didn't know how much to add; I should have added more to achieve the color on the bottle.
Nevertheless, the shells are pretty. The shells were transferred to the freezer and will be filled at a later date.
The batter is colored and ready to pipe
piped and drying
just out of the oven; I never tire of watching through the oven door for the feet!

At any time, I'm probably reading three books...one for fun, one about cooking, and one photography book.
