After many many many attempts at the green tea macaroon, it has finally worked! Who knew green tea powder altered the basic recipe so much!
I came to the conclusion that green tea dissolves in the macaroon mixture, making it more liquid. The mixture appears to be correct until placed in the oven. During the baking process, the tops of the macaroons had completely slipped off causing all the macaroons to be crooked! What a disaster!
Forget being a pastry chef! I had to become a mad scientist!

This is me with my cake at the 2009 Cake Show hosted by Bonnie Gordon! This cake took me about 80 hours! I was inspired by mosaics, with creams and 24k gold accents. It reminded me of walking through the streets of Paris, and seeing all the beautiful churches and cathedrals!
