A range of pastel purple, pink and yellow macarons sit on a pretty white platter inside their glass case. My mouth can’t help but water as I look at them. Two dollars somehow make their way out of my wallet and I sit down with my plate and a pink macaron that I can eat in two bites. If you’re like me and you don’t want to pay way too much for too little, then try following this foolproof recipe to sugary success.

Here are some more of the blogger’s tips and favorite products to make macarons with.

1/4 cup white sugar

2 cups confectioners sugar
