Free Easter egg macaron template, recipe and tutorial for mess-free speckled looking macarons.
I think most of you have been seeing a lot of Easter related baked goods recently like colourful cakes topped with pastel coloured Easter eggs, chick cupcakes and my recent favorite - a cake shaped like a rabbit bottom. So funny!
Well, here's my little contribution to the world of Easter baked goodies this year. I know many of you have already tried or thought about making speckled Easter eggs. How do you do it? Here's a technique that I use. I posted a short video on my Instagram page and there were quite a few readers who commented that the technique they had previously used was really messy. Oh my!
Below is a short video tutorial showing you how I add speckles to my Easter Egg Macarons. It's a relatively clean method since I even had my camera lens up close and my equipment was still safe :). And if you need a template for the Easter egg and other Easter themed macaron templates, just scroll down to the bottom to find the free template for download.
Hope you enjoy it!
