Re:Chocolate and Peppermint Macarons

Fabulous recipe - my first time making macarons and they were a success! I did have a lot of ganache filling left over but other than that all went well. I'd recommend watching a few videos on making macarons before attempting, though, as the extra knowledge is helpful when tacking this tricky cookie. Bonne chance!

Re:Hot Chocolate Layer Cake with Homemade Marshmallows

I liked the ganache frosting very much. It was easy to make and to work with. I didn't even follow the recipe, just threw everything except the cocoa into the pot, cooked to melt the butter and the chocolate, then added the cocoa and refrigerated overnight. Whipped like a dream, had great texture in the fridge and held up at room temp. The flavor was ok, but I used Hershey's cocoa. I will try another brand next time to see if there is an improvement. With flavor tweaking this will become my go-to chocolate frosting.The cake was easy to make, but I felt that it was somewhat dry. It had good flavor but I did not like the crumb. Those marshmallows, though - they were fabulous! Definitely my favorite part of the recipe. This was my first time making marshmallows and they came out perfectly. Yes, homemade are much better than store-bought! One thing that I would have appreciated in the directions was a description of what the marshmallow should have looked like after beating but before setting - the description "like pourable marshmallow fluff" might have been helpful.I won't make this cake again but I will be re-making the frosting and the marshmallows.
