Ingredients

Ingredients for Soft Pink Macaron Shells

  • 65 grams almond flour
  • 65 grams icing sugar
  • 50 grams egg whites (aged for min. of 24 hours)
  • 45 grams castor/granulated sugar
  • 1/8 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 drop pink gel color (I used Deep Pink by Americolor)

Supplies for Painting Roses

  • Few drops of "Light" Pink Gel Colour (I used Deep Pink by Americolor)
  • Few drops of "Dark" Pink Gel Color (I used Mauve by Americolor)
  • Few drops of Red Gel Color (I used Super Red by Americolor)
  • Few drops of Green Gel Color (I used Leaf Green by Americolor)
  • Fine tip brush

Instructions

  1. Follow my Best Macaron Recipe on how to make the light pink shells.

  2. Fill, assemble and chill the macarons before decorating.

  3. Put a drop of each gel color on a clean plate. Use a little at a time since it will dry up.

  4. Dip a fine paint brush into the light pink colour. Paint a few random strokes in a circular pattern leaving some white space in between strokes. This will form the rose "bud" foundation.

  5. Repeat previous step with the medium pink color while adding a few more strokes to the outer edge of the bud to create the "petals".

  6. Repeat previous step with the red color.

  7. Paint on the leaves and stem with the green gel colour.


  8. Place macarons back into the refrigerator and let dry for 24 hours before adding gold foil and packaging.

  9. Add gold foil. Tweezers or wooden chopsticks work really well for transferring gold fold. 

  10. Don't forget to watch the video at the bottom of this post to see the video tutorial I made as well.
