The new year is full of hope and promise. It gives us an extra push when it comes to exploring and learning new things. My 2016 goal list includes travel and becoming a better cook. So I thought Michelle's Macarons simple guide to a complicated dessert would be a great course to share with you today. 

Through Michelle's trial and error of making macarons over 100 times, she's perfected a technique for these delicate sweets to come out perfectly every time. French baking can be daunting but Michelle simplifies the approach (through her online video course that you do at home).

Michelle is giving Twink + Sis readers 20% off her premium course with the discount code TWINKANDSIS. You can sign up to learn this beautiful art on her website.

Happy baking!
