Actually I made these from leftover batter for Mickey and Minnie mouse macarons. I made some absolutely cute bumblebee macarons with some of the leftover batter alongside these Badtz Maru ones.
Please refer to the recipe from my Mickey and Minnie macarons. The only difference is in piping the shells and painting/piping on the facial features with royal icing. I used the exact colours of icing as my bumblebee macarons.
Freshly piped macaron shells.
Use a toothpick to pull the batter to make the spikes on the head. You may choose to make a mirror-imaged shell for the bottom piece but I piped ovalish shells for the bottom piece.
Freshly baked shells!
Filling the shells with cookies n cream swiss meringue buttercream
I couldn't resist taking this photo...
I had loads of fun making these ;)
