MAC ATTACK #24 - PINK OCTOBER MACARONS

IN THE PINK

We’ll drink a drink a drink
To Lily the pink the pink the pink

The savior of the human race.

She invented medicinal compound.

Most efficacious in every case.
Brobdingnagian Fairy Tales

October, as many of us are aware, is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. An international campaign is waged, raising awareness and raising funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer. And for the second year in a row, the Mactweets Team has decided to support this cause by declaring our October Mactweets Challenge Pinktober Macarons for Breast Cancer Awareness.


Think Pink! Roses and raspberries, bubblegum and cotton candy, champagne and pink grapefruit, whatever your flavor, show your flare and color your world pink! Bring out your most feminine side and help a most worthy cause by Going Pink in the kitchen. Savory or sweet, classic or kitsch, elegant or fun, just make it and bake it Pinkalicious!

In The Pink! By baking Pinktober Macs, we can do our share to raise awareness about this disease that still kills. By baking Pinktober Macs, we can do our share to raise awareness about the need to find a cure so we are all In The Pink!

Tickled Pink! So tie on your favorite pink apron and put on your pink thinking cap and come up with an extraordinary, scrumptious macaron all dressed in Pink! And if you can convince just one friend to join us for the first time and bake Pink along with us in our Mactweets Kitchen, then we’ll all be Tickled Pink!


Now, just follow the rules:

1. Once you have posted your Mac Attack macarons on your blog, make sure that you mention the Mactweets Mac Attack challenge in your post and link back to the Mactweets blog. Please make sure that your Mac Attack #24 Pinktober Macarons are inspired by the theme!
2. Please link back to this challenge on your post.


3. Feel free to promote the Mactweets blog by proudly displaying the Mactweets badge in your Mac Attack post as well as in your sidebar! It isn't mandatory but is a nice way to get the word out!
4. Have your Pinktober Macarons posted on your own blog by October 30th, 2011. And being just a little bit late never hurt anybody...
5. Once your post is up, simply leave the link to the post as a comment to this Mac Attack Challenge post!

The round up will be posted on or about November 5, 2011!

  27. Sorry for being so late. Hope I can participate. For me Pink October was all about pink, macarons, eclairs and salad.
