This picture to me shows one of the most beautiful things I like to see when it comes to pastry: sameness. These are macarons waiting to be baked. It shows a practiced hand, precision, consistency and skill. As if a machine had made it, and yet it was a human hand. It's not the same as when you see desserts being popped out of a fleximold, where the silicone does the work for you, and then where is the craftsmanship when all you use is a mold? Molds are good to use, but I think restraint should be the mantra. Otherwise why bother?
See it and love it.
