Happy New Year! Here’s a little magical project for start of 2018, adorable unicorn macarons!
They are cute, they are sweet and they are full of magic! “Call it magic, call it true I call it magic when I’m with you..” I literally listed to Magic, by Coldplay on repeat while painting these sleepy and smiley unicorn faces. Magic or a great mood lifter at least 😉
As for the flavour, lavender is strong and the flavour can be overwhelming so use it sparingly and rather start with a tiny drop adding causiously after tasting the mixture. I used a drop of oil in the shells too letting the hint of smell be the indicator but in the buttercream I tasted the mixture after each additional drop to avoid getting a soapy flavour. Pairing with vanilla the flavour works beautifully but as there are differences in brands I strongly suggest adding lavender in tiny drops tasting in between the additions.
