Recently I have discovered that Perth is not as market dry as I once thought and on one of these discoveries I found the Clontarf Saturday Markets. Now when I think 'markets' I think of one word......'homemade'. Trinkets, toys and Riff-Raf.
I have long been put off the idea of macaroons and for major reason.
They are brightly coloured.
Yep, thats it! thats my enitre reason. To me, brightly coloured remindes me of iceing. You know that icing they put on childrens cakes and cupcakes too? I have never liked the stuff and to look at these pink and purple little treats look up at me with suck an intense rainbow effect, I never had a problem walking on past....never.....until I worked up the guts to try Alexander's Macaroons.
