Cupcake Macarons



Well hello cupcake.

Hey! You're not really a cupcake.

OK I get it you're a cupcake shaped macarons dipped in chocolate decorated with pink sprinkles and topped with a delicious chocolate sixlet.*

*Sixlets are chocolate covered with a thin candy layer available from cake decorating and Hobby/craft stores, Ebay, Spotlight in Australia.


Now I see that I forgive you, but first let me take just one little bite...ummm maybe 2 or 3.

Ooops.


These pretty little cupcake shaped macaroons are made with my regular macaron recipe. Click HERE for my previous post which includes my macaron recipe.

Then I just coloured 2/3rds of it pink and piped out little cupcake case bottoms, followed up with white puffy cupcake tops. I made my cupcake tops by piping 3 quick puffs right next to each other.

If you want to be super neat you could draw little cupcake templates and pop them under the parchment paper as a guide. But that's just not how I roll. I kinda like the irregularity of the hand piped macarons.  Plus I'm super lazy :)

Yup this is how I bake my macarons for real no fancy stuff, 
just parchment/ baking paper on an Ikea Baking Tray.

Bake as usual, match up like sized macaroons, fill with ganache and chill until set.

Melt some white chocolate#, dip the tops of the cupcakes in the melted chocolate, sprinkle on some pink jimmies and top with a sixlet (or a M & M would be good as well).


#I used Wilton white chocolate melts with a little copra (paramount crystal) melted in to give a smooth finish that sets quickly and reduces the chances of the sprinkles and six let sliding off.


and apologies everyone I know I said I would share the recipe for my golden things macarons this week but something came up and I have not had time to finish the recipe for the blog. But just in case you missed the picture I will share it - oh my goodness they were super delicious.
