    I had no idea you had a youtube channel! I have subscribed and checked out several of the videos already. I LOVED “Let Them Eat Cake” when I read it several years ago (even recommended it to my mom and she loved it too) but have not had the opportunity to read books two and three. The macarons from Ma-Ka-Rohn look exquisite!
