How to Make Bunny Macarons
- Make your macaron batter. You don’t need any food coloring added to the macaron batter if you’re making a white colored bunny.
- To pipe your bunny macarons, begin by piping a small circle ~ 1″ in diameter.
- Pipe one ear off to the side of the circle on the top. You’ll want to drag the macaron batter upward, and then let the batter drip back on to itself to create one ear. Repeat on the other ear.
- Use a toothpick to guide both of the ears of the bunny into a point.
- Pipe all of your bunny macarons in the same way.
- Remove the air bubbles from the macarons by banging the bottom of the baking pan.
- Let the macarons dry for 30 minutes.
- Bake your bunny macarons for the exact same time it says in the recipe you’re using, and let them cool. Fill your macarons.
- Add eyes and eyelashes with an edible marker. Draw 2 wavy lines to create the eyes, then add small lines outwards to create the eye lashes.
- Add 2 “U” shaped lines to create the mouth.
- Add 2 whiskers on each side of the bunny face.
- Use pink powdered food coloring and a little almond extract together to make a paint. Paint the pink color on the inside of the ears of the bunny, and a triangle or round nose using a food safe paint brush.
- Let dry for 20 minutes.
- Store your bunny macarons in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
