Early Grey Macarons
Overall a success but I am learning that I really need a food possessor. Basic macarons, with some tea leaves in the cookie and filled with an early grey buttercream. I wanted them to be a little more purple, but I was too afraid of over whipping them to mix in more food colouring.
