They look amazing, the 'feet' are exactly right. Well done:D. I make them a lot so know how hard they can be to get right.

They look great.

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something

I make them professionally too, the feet look great but they are not quite domed enough on top.  That means that you have mixed them a tiny bit too much and the mixture has softened too much and dropped. When you pipe your Ganache use a plain round tip. Pipe it into the centre of the shell, put the top shell on, push down gently until the Ganache just reaches the edge. They look great.

Also they look a bit brown around the edges.  Try cooking them a bit less as they are not supposed to brown at all.

They look great!  Yes, maybe turn your heat down a bit so your bottoms aren't beginning to brown.  And 810 is right - there is a very fine line at the "lava" stage of mixing - not enough and you will have to pat down the peaks as you pipe, too much and they spread a bit.  But you did a fabulous job!

 

I just saw a new macaron flavor on Pinterest I am going to try next week - Baklava, filled with walnut and honey buttercream - doesn't that sound good?
