I'm always in awe of people who can bake beautiful things. I spend hours looking at baked creations and then sigh thinking to myself I can't make that! That's what's different about Xiaolu of Six Bitter Sweets.
You look at her beautiful creations, read her honest post and instructions and it will give you the confidence of making it yourself. Apart from being a fabulous baker, she is a dear friend always willing to help others by sharing her great photography skills. She has recently started offering her home made baked goods for sale for DC, Northern Virginia and Maryland Areas, so if you live anywhere near check out her menu here. I wish I lived there, I would take full advantage of having a baker friend. But for the time being she has made some fabulous macarons for Journey Kitchen and I'm sure you will love it!
