Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Macarons

Harry: "Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans?" 
Ron: "They mean every flavor! There's chocolate and peppermint, and there's also spinach, liver, and tripe. George sweared he got a boogie flavored one once."

Haha. Anyone else have fond memories of Harry Potter ? No? Just me? Okay. For some reason that quote stuck, I remember being quite fascinated.. granted of course, as a children I was incredibly unadventurous concerning food, how ironic now. I stumbled upon the concept more as an attempt to conceal a mistake but nonetheless, it appeared to work out rather well. I made the macarons for my sister's birthday, knowing that she has a huge penchant for them. I've made macarons before but the appeal solely lies in the abundance of flavours and the kaleidoscope of colours that it provides.. it's awfully mundane to make a batch of just one flavour and colour . I read that the Italian method was more reliable concerning multicoloured macarons .. I just didnt anticipate how finicky it was however. In the end, I decided to forgo the multitude of colours and just stick to something a lot more simpler. That is, just stick to my original plan and have a multitude of flavours from one frosting batch but keep the colour the same.
It all worked out well as now it had a more mysterious element introduced... THERES A CHANCE YOU COULD GET A BAD FLAVOUR ! .. Not haha . This time around I made sure it was .. mostly perfect haha , no unusual flavours .. or defected ones ... but definitely in the near future ;) . The flavours here were just, vanilla latte, green tea, milo , golden gaytime, nutella, vanilla, peanut butter&jelly, malted milkshake ... so... anyone dare try their luck ? Next time .. there shall be toothpaste... maybe when I have more time to experiment ... haha .

Present were also red velvet cupcakes and I must say , ladies and gentleman, please feast your eyes on this remarkable and most importantly, unedited beauty. The frosting speaks for itself doesnt it? I also made scones .. somewhat mundane after those gems huh ? Hahaha . Unfortunately, I had t leave for work soon after so I didnt get to see whether or not my sister and her friends enjoyed the desserts... one can solely hope right ?

Perhaps I should do more recipes inspired by things that I have read in my favourite books ;)
