To celebrate today’s International Best Friend Day again, I will show you how to make these super adorable friendship macarons!
These are a bit more difficult, than my friendship charm tutorial from Thursday..
Also, I am using a mold I’ve made myself. If you don’t have molds, you can either cut the forms out with cookie cutters or do it by hand. If you’re new to making macarons, here’s a tutorial for mini ones, but it’s basically the same thing.
Other than that, you will need:
- cookie cutters or an exacto knife
- glaze (optional)
So let’s staaaart :
My molds, and the clay ! I am mixing the cream for inside first, and use translucent and pink clay, but you can also just use pink one.
Fill the mold with another clay color of your choice.
Because I am using fimo effect, which is ridiculously soft, I let the clay sit in the mold for a bit, before I make the other macaron side.
Since I am waiting, I can prepare the other macaron, the round one.
Pop out the clay and put it to the side. Now you can make the other side.
I noticed that the edges weren’t defined enough, so I textured it a bit more.
Now you can roll out the clay from the start, and then cut a heart out or free hand it.
Make sure it fits!
I smoothed out the edges to make it rounder and the look creamer.
Now cut out a heart in the middle, or again do it by hand !
Put the cream onto the macaron in the mold. This way you won’t squeeze the other macaron side.
Then put the other heart onto the other macaron side.
If you want you can check carefully if the to sides fit, by putting them together lightly. But this can be tricky.
I took out the macaron out of the mold.
Now repeat the steps for the round macaron!
Now you can put in the pins.
Now lets bake !
After baking, you can remove the dirt and dust. Either use nail polish remover, or scrape the dust away with a knife.
When you are happy with your results you can glaze it !
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that you had a wonderful Monday!
And maybe you can recreated this tutorial for your best friend!
