Hi fellow followers , am showing you some of my favorite designs on how you can use macaroons on cakes ,these are some of my favorites ,i am a great fan of macaroons it took me a few days to get them perfect !!!! and make shapes like hearts ,flower like shapes ,and dust them with icing suagar and variety of prints ,sprinkles .And the same with the fillings there are so many to choose from ,my favorite macaroons our coconut and pineapple macaroons they are so yummy !!!Here is a great reicepe i was given and have never looked back i use this one every time.
75g ground almonds
115g icing sugar
2 large eggs whites
50g caster sugar
half a tsp vanilla extract
place the ground almonds and icing sugar process for 10 -15 seconds
sift mixture into bowl .
Place the egg whites in a large bowl and whisk until holding soft peaks ,gradually whisk until holding soft peaks .Gradually whisk in the caster sugar to make a firm ,glossy meringue,whisk in the vanilla extract.
Using a spatula fold the almond mixture into the meringue one third at a time ,when all the dry ingredients are throughly incorporated ,continue to cut and fold the mixture until it forms a shiny batter with a thick ,ribbon-like consistency.
Pour the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a plain nozzle ,pipe 32small rounds onto the prepared baking sheets .tap the baking sheets firmly onto a work surface to remove air bubbles .leave at room temperature for 30min so when you touch the macaroon there is nothing sticking to your finger the macaroon should have a shiny film on top.Preheat the oven 160/325f/gas mark 3
Bake in the preheated oven 10-15mins,cool for 10mins then carefully peel the macaroons of the baking paper ,then leave to cool completely.Enjoy!!
