Cake it Pretty: Pink Ribbon Macarons + some exciting news!!



Two things. First: It's October - Yes, yes, its Halloween {every blogger and crafter's dream come true}, but its also national breast cancer awareness month!

I really really wanted to plan a whole party around this theme and share it with you today! But because of the second thing {keep reading}, I have been super busy. So, will you settle for some really cute Pink October macarons?! Next year I promise a whole party dedicated to boobbies and pink. k?

Second: I have some crazy fun news. Like the kind that makes you jump up and down and pinch yourself to see if you are dreaming kind of news. Ready? Creative Juice has a BOOK DEAL!!!!!!

Yes, you read that right! You can head here and see all the details!
Ok back to the macarons. Aren't they cute?


I am just obsessed with macarons! 

If you are new to macarons: I would start here with my DIY guide to french macarons. And be sure to watch the videos - they really help. I have my own recipe - but the one in this post is a great starting point.

If you are comfortable with macarons: Try the next level - dipping them! For the dipped macarons, be sure your finished macarons have fully chilled in the fridge. Use candy melts and gently dip the macaron to cover just under 1/2 of the cookie. While still warm, shake sprinkles over top to cover. Place on wax paper in the fridge until set.

If you are really comfortable with macarons: Try the ribbon shape! Draw an outline of a ribbon and try piping this shape. Be sure not to drag the tip on the parchment paper - keep it vertical and 1/2 in above the parchment. 

And best of all? They tast AMAZING!!! If you have no idea what a macaron is - find one and EAT it. It will change your life lol!
