Breakfast with Tiffany

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

Filling Recipe
Vanilla buttercream
2 egg white
150g butter (soften)
80g sugar
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

Printable Recipe

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.

Cut diagonal on the remaining strips on both ends and attach the flat ends by gently putting pressure

Remove the bow from the pop stick and attach to  the tail with icing sugar.  Attach to macaron shell with  icing sugar.

With a small brush, gently brush on edible Wilton White Pearl Dust.

 Step-by-step how to make flower fondant

Use a plunger cutter. They come in 3 different sizes. Attach to macaron shell with icing sugar.

Final Result...

Perfect for Wedding, engagement, anniversaries

  2. Hi Azah,
    Thank you for stopping by. This macaron design is perfect as engagement or wedding favors! Have fun making it!

  3. What do you attach the fondant to the shell with? These macarons are beautiful

  4. Hi Lieler,

    I use icing sugar to attach the fondant. They are really strong once they dries out. And taste good too :)

  5. Hi, do you dissolve icing sugar in water and brush it on to attach? How far ahead can I make these before the event. Thanks, and these macarons are gorgeous.

    1. Hi Adeline

      The icing is already in liquid form. They come in bottles. You can freeze these for a week before the event. Just thaw it before you serve :)
