Scary, I see I may be the first person to take up the challenge. And challenge it is. I recently decided to combat the dull dark Dutch winter by making (attempting to make?) brightly yellow colored maracons. It's the only way I can remember what the sun looks like... a cute lemony disk of sugary goodness.

Macarons are quite a challenge to make anyway (especially for this beginner), so I decided to make the ULTIMATE challenge by putting a macaron recipe and instructions into tweetable form. Here goes nothing:

Make spaghetti; make sauce. Put sauce on spaghetti.

Here's my attempt on stuffed dates (see http://bit.ly/dVCOhU for the original):
