Violet Valentines

We had a little tea party for Valentines.  I made up some chocolate macarons with purple buttercream frosting for the occasion.  The buttercream frosting was delicious, but sadly the macarons weren't.  They came out hard and flat and were a challenge for Pookie (who is missing two front teeth) to eat.  I think the lack of clear instructions concerning the egg whites might have been part of the problem.  Another time perhaps...
And really, the food wasn't all that important--the kids and I just wanted an excuse to use our new (to us) tidbit tray.  Little hand-painted purple violets--we're all head over heels in love with them!
