These are the French macarons we bought at the Honolulu Coffee Company in Waikiki. My first time to try them. Very good and very sweet. Did I mention expensive? These are cupcakes from Icing on the Cupcake here in downtown Sacramento. I got a Groupon coupon and just recently had the chance to use it. The cake part is very good and moist but the frosting was overly sweet. This is my version of the French macaron. Lots of recipes online and tutorials on Youtube. The only place that carries ground almond in my area is Sprouts in Elk Grove. I had to re-process it again to make it finer for sifting. The taste was the same as the store bought one but it appeared lumpy and coarse on the surface. I just had to practice some more.
