Ladybird Macarons

I had a request for ladybird macarons. These were really fun to make, mainly because I loved the post baking decorating.

I would say the hardest part would be getting the shells uniform enough to pair up so that they didn’t look wonky.

My girls absolutely loved them! I did a dark chocolate ganache, red velvet with cream cheese frosting and white chocolate ganache.

      Hello Lea

      I always use powder colours when making macarons because I’ve found that the gel or liquid colours change the consistency so Ive ended up with a few flopped batches.

      I used a few containers of powder to get them black because one definitely won’t do the trick. For these ladybirds I used Barco powder colours. If I remember correctly it was around 3 containers of 5g each. I basically kept adding until it was black.
