Last summer I worked as a baker/pastry chef for a local inn. I was incredibly fun – although the wedding cakes were really stressful. Particularly one bride who wanted a blueberry colored cake. Even though I literally had a bowl of blueberries beside me to match the shade, she insisted it wasn't right. Too blue. It turns out she was looking for something a bit more Blue Raspberry Slushie than something that was actually found in nature. It worked out fine in the end even if I did end up with blue hands for the rest of the weekend.
The hardest, fussiest, coolest thing we made (my son worked with me all summer) were macarons. I'm pretty sure we made them in almost every color.
Fussy, but oh so very pretty. I'll post my recipe in a few days. It's super simple if you follow my instructions (precisely).
