Cheery Bear Macarons Again!

It's them again!! I hope you are not tired of seeing these cheery bears with beer mugs. They have put a smile on many people's faces with their cuteness and whimsical characters :).

This setup is going to be on display at Kinokuniya in Takashimaya this coming Saturday, 23rd April. I will be doing a demo for piping the 3D pop-up features on the bears.

You may find the detailed recipe, piping steps and templates in my Creative Baking: Macarons book.

I decided to create a simple dollhouse concept to display these critters sitting at a table with miniature macarons. So totally cute overload :p. I baked round macarons of various sizes and stuck them together with royal icing. The brown coloured icing is coloured with cocoa powder. The brown macaron shells are also coloured with Dutch processed cocoa and filled with dark chocolate.

The table and stools are made from circles with diameters of 2cm, 3.5cm and 5.5cm.

Piping circles of different sizes

Baked shells for bear, table, stools and mini macarons. I decided not to use the tiny 1.2cm brown macarons as stool legs as they aren't necessary.

Assembled table and stools!

See the bears with some other awesome displays this Saturday, including a unicorn macaron carousel and many other cute critter macarons!

With lots of love and fun,
Phay Shing
