There are talented people who are very creative like the one who did these macaons:
(these beautiful macarons pictures are taken from: http://www.crumbsmacaron.com/gallery.php)
But I have no time or talented hands to decorate macarons like these, furthermore, I feel bad to eat such an art creation like these macarons above, so I decorate macarons with simple decorations.
The colored candies / decorations should be added to the macarons before they get dry, so the decorations can stick to the macarons. Beware that your hands are clean and dry before you decorate, because any drop of water or dirt can ruin the macarons 🙁 .
In the following pictures you can see some cute and simple decorations:
pearls, white colored candies, heart shaped colored candies
silver colored candies, silver pearls for baking (these ones I found only in a pastry shops), coconut chips, cocoa powder
combination of colored candies
Yes! You can eat this smiley macaron. This one was made with an edible marker, I bought it in a pastry shop, I know to paint only smilies, hearts and flowers..
Dried vanilla grains
You can blend more than one colored batter for one macaron..
This is the perfect decorations for kids.. classic colored candies. This dessert is great for party with kids who have lactose or gluten intolerence.
Did I mention that yellow and blue are my favorite colour combination?
golden food coloring…
There are much more decorations which I haven't taken a pic… You can use your imagination for each decoration you'd like, if it's your first experiment with a certain decoration, check it over 2 macarons only, because not all the little candies or decorations are baked well, so it'll be too bad to ruin the macarons just because of the new decorative idea..
And again, decorate only with clean and DRY hands…. 🙂
