BLACK STALLION – THE BLACK MACARON

THE INTRODUCTION

Black Stallion Macaron 3

This is my latest bakes, a bunch of oriental flavoured macarons and I called them, The Black Stallion. They looked so pretty awesome purely black and glossy shine, yet so eye catching indeed, I just adore them.

A girlfriend of mine said, ” One look, I am totally in love with them, so man, so slick!”

For this Black Stallion macaron shell, I decided to match them with japanese black sesame cream. The flavour of the black sesame cream tasted subtle and pretty awesome with a hint of saltiness, just balance the sweetness of the macaron shell.

The whole black stallion macaron tasted ingeniously refine, crusty shell with a gummy texture and ended with a delicious pungent after taste of the black sesame.

I also took the opportunity to explore the usage of japanese white sesame cream and combine it with chocolate macaron shell, verdict: very inspring, exciting and full body flavoured.

    Wanna know how these macarons and some of Sunny,s cakes taste like?
    If I blindfold you ,put you in containner and rattle it for 24 hrs (like kipnapping in movies)and then feed you with :

    1)Black macaron…. You thought u r in Hong Kong..(the sesame taste)
    2) White choc raspberry cake….You thought u r in France(the Ritz Paris taste)
    3) Durian tarts….Thank god ! u r still in Malaysia ( the kampung taste)

    Thats how good these stuff are. Trust me, I tried them all during baking class at BBO resident yesterday.

    Now finally I see the “bamboo charcoal powder”! Btw, the macarons look soooooo shining black. I don’t think I’ll like it by the look unless I taste it otherwise :).
