I know I named this post “BBQ Macarons”, and you were probably expecting macarons in the shape of a bbq, or hamburger or something else cool like that. I’m sorry to disappoint! These were just some nice, colorful macarons made for a family bbq last weekend. Well, half of them were for the bbq, the other half went to my sister who just moved in a new super cute apartment!
Now onto the details about these macarons not shaped like hamburgers… The top coral colored ones are cinnamon flavored with plain buttercream filling, and the bottom teal ones are plain almond with coconut buttercream filling. Most people seemed to like the cinnamon ones more, but the kids loved the bright teal and purple ones! Oh, and added bonus, I put too much coloring in them and they ended up staining everyone’s mouths!!! So I was totally able to see who ate what.
I had actually made a third batch too, which was maple with maple and cinnamon buttercream filling, but they didn’t come out that great in a few ways. First they were ugly and not very puffy. Then the morning of the bbq I accidentally squished them all right before I took photos!!!
I’m happy I was asked to make these, it helped boost my confidence a bit, which I greatly needed right now. I don’t really have any huge get togethers coming up soon, but maybe I should just make some more just for fun? They are gluten free, and I hardly ever get to eat sweets…Pin It
