Good afternoon!

My name is Belinda, and I am "Lil Miss Macaron". Welcome!

I'm a stay at home mum of two gorgeous little boys and married to the most handsome supportive husband ever! All my boys are my absolute first priority. It's been partially thanks to them, really, that I get to bake.. since being home with my kids baking has been a big passion of mine. All things sweet! Which, is ironic - because my husband doesn't really enjoy sweets!! Hahaha... never mind, luckily I have lots of fabulous friends to share my baked yummy treats with... 

My obsession with macarons began thanks to Masterchef Australia. And Adriano Zumbo. How I love thee!! I set about wanting to make my own macarons - a little challenge I wanted to set myself. 

My first ever batch, were chocolate, and they were perfection! (well, IMO of course!). And I was lulled into a false sense of security. My first batch. Worked. My next 10 or more batches how ever, did not. I just couldn't quit! I had to make all sorts of alterations for my macarons... and soon enough, I'd "conquered" them. I made a few different flavours for friends, and then decided I wanted to host an Australia's Biggest Morning Tea... and it's from there, that I decided to sell them so that others could enjoy them too. 

That's me, for now...
