Honey Macarons with a dash of Sprinkles

My addiction to making Macarons is out of control.  I've morphed from wanting to always bake cupcakes to always wanting to bake Macarons and discover new flavours. I wonder if there is a baking rehabilitation centre, because I need to be admitted.

Cupcake Delights | Chocolate Cupcakes with Honey Frosting
