MacAttack 13 ... a round-up of Falling for Macarons

"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. "

We fell for your macarons! Bravo you wonderful mac-passionate bakers, you breathed new meaning into the word FALL. It's been a wonderful and very creative lot of entries for the #13th MacAttack ... a challenge that proved to be lucky for all of us!

Yes, it's MacTweets Attack #13 round-up! Our call was to FALL for MACARONS, and we did it in style. It was Autumn colours, flavours and nostalgia all the way! It was lovely to FALL with YOU. We're sorry this is a day late, but we got slightly delayed as we tried to accommodate the macarons which 'fell' in late!
