The kitchen counters are covered with baking supplies. There are broken eggshells and empty food coloring bottles in the trash, as well as sugar scattered throughout the table and ﬂoors. Krista Colteaux is exhausted from trying what she thought would be fun, yet it has failed for the ﬁfth time. Who knew it would be so difficult to make the ever-popular confectionary, a macaron?
Colteaux loves to cook, and as of recently has been dipping her hand into the mixing bowl of baked goods—literally. Everyone likes cookies and cupcakes, so she has been baking sweet treats for birthdays, events, and just to satisfy a craving.
