I decided to make a blue (with a little green) macaron for my base, I was planning to make white chocolate macarons but I didn't make it to the shop, so in the end I opted for bright, sunny flavours, a lemon macaron with meringue filling, a light strawberry whipped cream buttercream and a cherry on top.
I knew the colour would dull slightly, so made the macaron batter a little darker than I wanted. I wish I had gone dark still, as the macarons came out a little too pale. The bottoms of my macarons also browned slightly, which was very irritating, I may double line next time.
After all cherries are in season.
