Giveaway of French Bakery Macaron Jewellery on Mad About Macarons!

I was goofing around one day. Finding a ring with no jewel, I tried to photograph this homemade mini mac perched on top of it.  The idea was fun but using real macarons that could change colour and flavour daily was a mad, tall order, don’t you think?

Patricia Bourdel, from A French Bakery came up with the answer with her wonderful macaron jewellery.  They look so real, don’t they?

What’s more, there’s a different colour of macaron for every day of the week. Now you can ring your friends to come around for tea and macarons (sorry, can never resist a pun.)

Tea and macaron pendants are ever so minuscule and oh, so fun!  I personally adore these macaron earrings…

Put them together and you have a stunning result. There’s even more at the French Bakery for that macaron look, s’il vous plaît.

Update 20 September:

Sorry, this Giveaway is now closed.

Christmas Giveaway of Mad About Macarons!

The Christmas Giveaway is now closed.
Winners will be announced shortly by Waverley Books.

The countdown is on. As the children are opening up their surprises in the Advent Calendar’s goody bags, it’s time for us to join in the fun.  It’s time for a Christmas giveaway!

Waverley Books are offering a copy of Mad About Macarons! to FIVE lucky readers this week. And it doesn’t matter where you live. They have been kind enough to open it up as an international giveaway.

For those of you who don’t have the book, there are 38 macaron recipes plus an annex containing recipe ideas to use up your egg yolks. There is an illustrated step-by-step guide in 6 pages explaining the basic macaron recipe. The book is full of tips, well over 100 macaron photos and serving suggestions for teas, coffees and wines to complement your home-made macarons (see Table of Contents.) Why not sample A Taste of Paris?

Don’t forget that all the macaron recipes are gluten-free. For macaronivores who already have the book, why not enter a friend who would love this as a gift?

How do you enter the international giveaway of Mad About Macarons? Dead easy.

Simply follow Le Blog by adding your email in the right hand column and you’ll never miss a blog post. If you’re on Facebook, ‘Like‘ Mad About Macarons. Already signed up for both? Then use your imagination: why not let as many friends who love macarons know about the book’s giveaway and what you like about the book. I’m not yet on Twitter, but why not tweet it amongst your friends, too?

Just leave a comment below telling us what you’ve done to enter the Giveaway and Waverley Books will pick your name at random.

The Christmas Giveaway ends Sunday 18th December 2011 midnight, Paris time.

Sorry, this Giveaway is now closed. But the book still lives on 😉

Now best get ready for a party tonight with these spiced chocolate orange Cointreau macarons above, plus chocolate glacial mint. Will do a Christmas macaron special for you on Monday, once I’ve recovered from entertaining 25 12-yr-olds!
