So it's my wife's birthday today. I already woke up early and baked her fresh scones for breakfast and am doing a nice dinner tonight, but I didn't get a "gift" gift. See, since our wedding, she's been saying how she wants to learn how to do macarons. So I figured that as a fun birthday gift, we could learn how to do them together this weekend. I've already got all the stuff we'll likely need, but after reading countless blog posts about it, I'm thinking this may not be as fun a day as I am imagining, and might simply be frustrating as hell!
For those that have some experience, how finicky are these guys to make? I mean really. Are they so difficult that this would be just a horrible idea?
