All You Need To Know About Making Anime Character Macarons

After making Nezuko and Levi macarons, I had requests for video tutorial on how to make anime type of character macarons. Although people would like to see how to make specific characters, I am not comfortable with using trademarked characters as subjects for the tutorial so I am using a caricature of myself drawn by very talented artists Duvoir and Artysaur (from Twitch). Hubby commissioned them to draw caricatures of our whole family some time back so we have the drawings for our own use. Presenting myself as a macaron, lol! 

Cat ears are included because I love cats. 

I put up two Youtube videos for this. The first video focuses on piping the macaron batter and some tips for the dos and don'ts. The second video focuses on using edible marker and vodka wash technique to include the details. Tips such as how to "erase" edible marker marks are included. A bonus portion is also included at the end of the second video showing how I fill the macarons and how to cut it such that you get a nice cross-section for photography. 

I hope you find the tutorials helpful! 

With love,
