Last year I made "Almazing" Almond Bars and this year I wanted to keep with the white dessert theme. So, I decided to make macarons. When I picked up the pieces for the center piece, I also picked up some edible glitter dust. I must say, these were pretty!
I used organic pear preserves for the filling of the glittery ones.
I also decorated some with edible markers which I ended up loving the look of. Nothing like marking the name of an event on food!
These ones had raspberry preserves in them, you know, to match the font color. :)
My guest at the diner was a really wonderful musician friend of mine who also happens to be a foodie. I had her in charge of the meal. Check out this beautiful spread!
And that was just the first course!
Here we are enjoying it and the lovely evening. Can you spot the center piece on the table?
Once again I was asked to sing for the event which I gladly did. It's always such a magical night and I'm always happy to sing in front of 4,000 beautifully dressed people.
I sang Summertime. I thought it was very fitting for a Monday evening in August. :) Here's a video if you'd like to check it out: Youtube Summertime
After singing I broke into my desserts. It was kinda like singing for supper...but I sang for sugar.
