raspberri cupcakes




*squeal* I heart macarons but I super heart piggies! Love 'em!

In a nutshell, I was born in the year of the pig (chinese zodiac) and have basically been collecting piggie trinkets and such since birth, mostly gifted to me by my mom...


So stumbling across these photos via stephcookie's flickr must have been kismet. I feel this sort of special kinship with steph, even though I'm fairly certain she has no idea who I am. But how can you not feel a bond with someone who makes something you utterly adore?

What's could be more wonderful than these pictures? The recipe (and more pictures) for these darling delights is on steph's blog, raspberri cupcakes. Now, I'll be honest, I haven't even attempted normal, faceless macarons so I probably won't be trying the recipe any time soon, however, I swear that I will at some point in my life. Maybe she'll be my new best friend... though my birthday just passed. *sigh* A girl can dream right?

  3. Janie, these are amazing! I'm still working on getting the regular ones down (so many factors), so I'm with you on not trying these yet, though I love that someone has.
