In honor of the Dowager Countess

Downton is back! So much to catch up on! Branson’s back! Really, just the thing for post holiday, take down the tree and candles let down, especially with no Patriot’s game because we managed a bye this week. In honor of the occasion I took my own advice and made a new batch of macarons on Sunday afternoon in honor of the Dowager Countess, Lady Violet.

In honor of her name the macarons are violet hued and I tried out my new edible fairy dust on them! Simple buttercream filling, but still satisfying!

Now I’ll have to think of what I can make in honor of Branson….
