One of my other interest other than baking in definitely fashion. Tiffany has been one of my all time favorite. The blue box with white bow is my inspiration for today's project. I decided to make some Tiffany Macarons! Here I'm using Teal color from Americolor. You can also find this in Wal-mart or Meijers. The recipe for the shell can be found at Macaron Back to Basics.
2 egg white
150g butter (soften)
1/4 tsp of vanilla essence
2 tsp of cream cheese
1) Beat the egg white and sugar until stiff peak. (consistency similar to meringue)
2) Add in the butter and continue to beat at low speed for 2 to 3 seconds. At this point you just want to mix them, and not to make it fluffier.
3) Add in cream cheese
4) Add in the vanilla essence and mix.5) Pipe the buttercream on the macaron shell
For the flowers and bows, I use ready made fondant.
Step-by-step how to make a Bow Fondant
Just take a small amount of fondant (size of a golf ball) and roll it out on parchment paper.
Use a fondant roller to get the best result. Remove the rubbers from the fondant roller to achieve thinner texture. Make it as thin as a paper. Use a sharp knife and make 5 strips ( about 5mm wide each). A blunt knife will make the edges look rough.
Fold one strip at both ends, use 2 pop sticks for support.
Lay a separate strip over the center of the two loops
Lift the sticks so that the strip hangs and remove the access.
Remove the bow from the pop stick and attach to the tail with icing sugar. Attach to macaron shell with icing sugar.
