I have been on a macaron baking spree. My brother got married last week and I made them for the wedding. Hundreds! They were up to their traditional macaron tricks- hundreds of them didn’t rise properly in the oven due to one of a thousand potential trivial changes.
The end result was what mattered though. The duds were still delicious to eat! I ended up making a couple hundred more than first planned because of the ones that rose poorly.
