MAC-A-VALENTINE ... Mac Attack 4

The last challenge brought out huge creativity and fun from all of us Macpassionate bakers. It's been a wonderful beginning to 2010, and we have more and more tweeps joining our blogroll. We are just four attacks down, and have a proud 46 mac-magicians on board, and the excitement continues.

With February here, and all the love in the air, what better theme to call out for but a Valentine Special. Saving all my kisses for you...and macarons too.

Let's see the passion flow, the love being piped into our next Mac Attack...

Please have your Mac Attack Post up no later than February 10 '10.

Here are the rules of the game:
  1. Once you have posted your Mac Attack macarons on your blog, please make sure you leave a comment with a link here on this post.
  2. Please link back to this challenge on your post.
  3. Please feel free to use the Mac Tweets logo. It isn't mandatory but is a nice way to get the word out!
Round up will be on Valentine's Day, February 14, 2010.
If we have as many or more than this last challenge, we will divide the round up into groups to make sure everyone's macs are visible and you have the time to visit all of them.

And ATTENTION PLEASE!!! Do add Mactweets to your RSS feed or sign up for e-mail alerts. This way you will always be in the loop and know as soon as we add a new post, a tutorial or a round up. And, as always, spread the word! Thank you!!
