Have you noticed that the last few tutorials I wrote on #macaronart, the characters like the pink bears and Moshi Maro were perfectly symmetrical? Therefore, you could use the same template for both the top and bottom shell. Today, we’re going to take our #macaronart up a notch and pipe these asymmetrical numbers. With these shapes, your template needs to have the usual “top-view” design plus the inverse of that to ensure they match properly when you assemble them together.
I created these numeric shaped macaron templates for you all to download and print out. Once printed, each number is approximately 2 1/2 inches tall (depending on your printer settings). It’s a sturdy size that will prevent breakage and looks great on top of a cake or other desserts. They will truly add that extra touch to a birthday cake and may even help eliminate the need for additional decorations!
Here’s a short video I made which shows how I pipe these numbers. I’m using an Atecco 805 tip.
Please enjoy these templates and if you do use them in your projects, please tag me. I’d love to share your work with other baking friends.
Until next time.
