Princess Crown and Shoes Raspberry and Earl Grey Macarons

I had a request for princess themed macarons. Since the stereotypical princess wears fancy shoes and tiaras, I made these macarons 😊

Looks a little like a shop selling princessy paraphernalia 🤣

I had to decide whether to go for easier time before baking or post-baking. I chose the latter to avoid using royal icing (which is added sugar) on the baked shells. So this is what the piped batter looks like...

Intricate details were done using macaron batter too

The glass slipper 

I used the Swiss meringue method for making the macaron shells and you may refer to the detailed recipe in this post.

I used edible marker to decorate the baked shells to make the features on the tiaras and shoes more well defined. I painted on some white stars to give the glass slipper a "bling bling" look by using paint made with white gel colouring dissolved in vodka.

Raspberry and earl grey flavours were requested. You may refer to this post for raspbery white chocolate ganache and this post for the Earl Grey ganache.

Did these princessy accessories charm you 😊?
