hello kitty macarons
When I saw this post on these adorable lemon-shaped macarons from 6 Bittersweets, I immediately got the idea to make Hello Kitty macarons! The idea brewed in my head for a while, until I finally had a chance to test the idea out on a couple of macaron shells while making my strawberry-lemonade macarons.
I thought about using cocoa powder to create Hello Kitty's face, but in the end I drew on the eyes, nose, and whiskers with edible "Foodwriter" pens. And for the bow, I attached heart-shaped sprinkles (glued on with a dab of the filling), just like the bow on my Hello Kitty cake pops.
I loved the end result. I only wished that I had made more! Next time, I will make an entire batch of these!
You can now find my recipe for Hello Kitty Macarons in my new book, "The Hello Kitty Baking Book"! Enjoy!
