Mactweets Challenge #9

This months Mactweets challenge was 'Sing... Sing a Song.'
PERFECT! This is a Mac Challenge for me! Anyone who knows me knows I am very into music and always have been... true, I am biased when it comes to my musical taste but the music I love... I L-O-V-E!!!
What song to choose? What artist? It's easy to narrow it down... my two truest music loves are: The Cure and Morrissey/The Smiths. My favorite songs by these artists don't have a color in the lyrics...hmmm?? I thought and thought of songs that have inspired me, touched me, changed me and there it was. My song choice for this challenge is

'This Twilight Garden' by The Cure.

"I lift my lips from kissing you
to kiss the sky
cloud soft and blue
and slow the sun melts down into
your golden words for me"
My macarons are the cloud soft and blue.

Basic shells

2 aged egg whites
1/2 Cup almond meal
1 Cup powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons + 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

Almond Cream

1 Cup whipping cream
1/4 Cup granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons almond extract
