Heart Macarons

 Valentine Macarons

Saint Valentine's Day is just around the corner..
and who wouldn't love 
receiving heart shaped French macarons 
from their sweet heart?

On my to-do list:
Take a macaron class
and learn how to make
real French macarons.
Oh how fun it would be
to pipe them into heart shapes!

Well, since I can't get to Paris
or make my own yet,
I think I'll just order
heart shaped macarons
from French-born master pastry maker
Eddy Rocq
owner of Rocq Macaons 
Rocq Catering
in Southern California.
