Behold the pistachio macarons I just made!
They're filled with pistachio buttercream and they're délicieux. Please note you can click for a nauseatingly large version of the picture. Many more to follow if I find the time. :)
Today's the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and if pistachio macarons seem insufficiently related to her crowning as Queen Mother in heaven, I've got a better Catholic dessert for you-- this one from the feast of a week ago. Good Thunder made an Assumption Cake. See, she's being borne up on the clouds of heaven. :)
