Lavender and Rose Macarons 2

A friend of mine happened to be having a Paris themed baby shower this week, and I thought it was a perfect opportunity to make more lavender and rose macarons for the event!

This time, I made vanilla bean macaron shells and paired them with a honey and lavender French buttercream.  They were quite unique and delicious!  When you bite into them, you smell and taste the lavender first, a hint of sweet spicy floral.  Then, the honey comes in with its sweet warmth.  The flavors mingle and trade off as you eat.

For the rose macarons, I made vanilla shells, colored light pink, and paired them with a raspberry and rose French buttercream.  The sweet floral rose went perfectly with the sweet tart raspberry.

Here's a picture of both flavors in better light, so you can see their beautiful colors.  I could not decide which flavor I liked best.
