Bunny in Strawberry and Passionfruit Macaron Teacup

This is the third time I am conducting class for this design but because there is a change in flavour, I decided to match the design to the flavour! Presenting my bunnies in macaron teacups! 

The bunnies are sitting in strawberry swiss meringue buttercream instead of osmanthus oolong ganache. This bunny theme might come in handy if you are thinking of something to do for Easter. The macaron teacup and saucer set is passionfruit flavoured so it pairs well with strawberry. These two different tart fruits complement the sweetness of macarons very well. 

In this class, I teach the swiss meringue method, piping and decorating simple characters like the bunnies, making hemispherical macaron shells, assembling the whole structure and making the filling. 

A little tip I can share here is the teeny strawberries that the bunnies are holding or wearing. You can make them out of red heart sprinkles. You may have some of this leftover from Valentine's day so might as well transform them into tiny strawberry sprinkles! Simply add on the seeds and leaves using royal icing and voila! You have strawberries! 

Even broken sprinkles can be decorated and used! Waste not! 

I made 4 different expressions on 4 bunnies but like hubby said, trying to fit all of them in a single picture isn't as stunning so I took another one to feature another expression. 

Have a berry good week ahead! 

With love,
