Butterfly macarons attempt #1

butterfly macarons attempt 1

Two weeks ago in middle of moving boxes and only few hours before we started packing the kitchen, I decided to do one last batch of macarons, in that kitchen.

For the last 18 months that kitchen was the heart of our home, I spent there most of the time I’d be at home and naturally left it to be packed last.

Earlier that day I was removing a giant butterfly puzzle from one of the walls and got the idea to do butterfly shaped macarons.

This was a quick attempt on something I will work on more before a full post so this time I am just going to share some pictures and share the recipe for cardamom cream cheese frosting, that I used as filling in these macarons.

Recipe Notes

I made this for filling macarons, but it would be just as perfect for cupcakes or on a coffeecake.
