Overview

This recipe will instruct you how to create delicious macaroons that will begin a revolution in your kitchen.

Ingredients

- 1 corrupt monarchy

- 1 scared King who tries to flee from the revolution

- 3 estates with different rights

- 3 enraged subdivisions of the third estate who pay the only taxes in the land and it was a large amount

- 10 philosophers who's books influenced people and their mindset to think about their government

- 1 sharp guillotine to dispose of the people not supporting the French

- 1 cup of Declaration of Rights of Man, so most men may have their rights (not women)

- 2 cups of Reign of terror, to get the people of France scared and make sure they do not commit treason

- 1 small man with many followers named Napoleon Bonaparte

- 1 fresh constitution of 1795

- a handful of revolutionary wars

Process

1. Pour in all the taxes onto the third estate bowl. Let them soak up and pay the taxes even though most have no money.

2. Mix the three estates in an assembly named the Estates General.

3. Dye all citizens of France of either red, white or blue. If they are not of these colors, dispose of them.

4. Overfill the Bastille with enraged commoners and establish The Declaration of Rights of Man.

5. Mix in the laws to the mixture and execute about 15,000 people who do not obey on the guillotine.

6. Throw in various revolutionary wars with other countries.

7. Add the new Constitution of 1795 by the National convention, but then have it overflow and abuse it's power.

8. Remove the king from the batter and throw it away with the new republic.

9. Have the small man be in charge of France. Enter a 15 year period of military rule.

Final Product

France had hoped to turn into a republic and allow the people more rights, but they failed right after the revolution. Napoleon Bonaparte controlled the whole batter and baked it in to a type of empire.
