Ice Cream Decorated French Macarons

Had to share these photos I took when I delivered these custom decorated ice cream cone french macarons for Jenesis’ 1st birthday party!  What an adorable setup they had going on in there!  Unfortunately, I only took photos of the dessert table, but you can already tell that the rest of the venue was adorably decorated!

The pink macarons were filled with fresh raspberry buttercream, the blue ones with salted caramel buttercream, and the purple non-decorated ones were my ever-popular ube (purple yam) french macarons!  I was asked by my client to decorated some of the macarons like ice cream cones to match their party theme.  The inspiration photo I had only used colored food markers to decorate, however, I wanted to make them look a little more realistic. The “cone” part of the macarons is made of chocolate-flavored fondant that I embossed the texture with a straight edge. The contrasting drizzle is royal icing topped with real sprinkles.  I don’t work with royal icing very often, so props out to all the sugar cookie decorators out there!  Royal icing is not very easy to work with and takes a lot of practice!  Until my next set of these cuties!

Special thanks for Jerel & Jem for hiring me to create these adorable macarons for your daughter’s special day!  A very happy 1st birthday Jenesis! #jenniturns1 #jenesismalong
