Macaron Box with Macarons, watercolor, 9" x 11 1/2"
There are still plenty of macarons all over Paris. In fact EVERYWHERE I went I found macarons in all shapes and sizes.
Directly across from my hotel on 79, rue de Seine was a Champion Supermarche and they have damn good macarons - a 12-pack costs 6.50 Euros.I bought them as still life models but they served double duty - and very tasty they were.
These bright jazzy babes are from patisserie Gerard Mulot. I bought them to paint. When the vendeuse asked, did I want them in a boite/box or for right now?' in French, I just mumbled, oui, oui'. They ended up in a sac /bag. Later on they were cracked and a mess, so I tossed them. Lecon learned - never buy macarons for emporte /take-away again.
When Corey heard I'd thrown out the macs, she begged me PLEASE rescue them from the trash but I forgot. I made it up by getting her two Pierre Herme macarons - a rose and a caramel.
