Macaron Flower Cookies

After making the heart macarons with wings last week I got inspired to try another macaron & chocolate creation, a pink flower cookie and they turned out pretty adorable. These pretties won’t last long in room temperature, especially in the heat we have had here in Israel the last few days (Summer came early this year).  Overall not the easiest dessert to serve but so […]

Heart Macarons With Wings

Cranberry macaron hearts with cranberry white chocolate filling and golden white chocolate wings. I’ve pictured flying macaron hearts in my mind for quite a while and am so glad I finally made these cuties! I left the ground almonds with some bigger bits on purpose and did not grind the almond-powdered sugar mixture this time, which made the shells a bit more chewy and not as […]

Cookie Monster Macarons

“C is for cookie and cookie is for me” Cookie Monster. Featuring the mini chocolate chip cookies I shared yesterday, here’s my version of the blue cookie loving monster. As it’s hard to get dark hue on macaron shells I did not achieve the navy blue look but they turned pretty adorable anyway. These fellows are filled with Nutella, but any ganache will work too. Here’s a […]

Passion Fruit Emoticon Macarons

Many things can go wrong when making macarons, and even when you have proven your recipe and know the technique, something can go wrong with these pretties. And that’s what happened to me last weekend while baking these yellow fellows. I wanted to flavour the shells with passion fruit and even made two different batches using passion fruit flavouring but they did not come out right. […]

Pink Dark Chocolate & Hazelnut Macarons

October is breast cancer awareness month and taking on wear pink challenge this post is all about pink. These pink ribbon and heart macarons are made with love to express my moral support for women with breast cancer. This time the macaron shells have no added flavoring, otherwise the recipe is same as here. I was lucky to find Finnish Geisha chocolates in a local store and used […]

This is the third time I make Hello Kitty macarons, I absolutely love making them, so much fun  and they are adored by both kids and adults. The past week me and my husband have been inspired by Japanese food and Hello Kitty being a global phenomenon from Japan seemed like a perfect treat for the end of the week. 🙂

Salty Caramel Dogie Macarons

This is the second time I work with caramel, first time was two years ago when I did some charity cupcakes for an animal welfare event in Cyprus, called “Hot Dog Show”. Funny coincident is that I again decided to work around a dogie theme. The chihuahua shape that I was going for did not come out that well and my caramel sauce stayed a […]
