Cake it Pretty: VALENTINE sprinkle MACARONS



i love valentines day. i love macarons. i love sprinkles.
this idea kinda has me all over it :) 

if you have made macarons before then this tutorial is an easy way to kick them up a notch! 
never made macarons before?

  check out my BOOK and pre-order your copy!
it will teach you how to make macarons AND 
show you how to make 
over 75 FUN and FESTIVE shapes to fit any event! 


here's how you make them. 


you need: 

macarons - freshly filled
festive valentine sprinkles
wilton cookie icing or royal icing in a piping bag with a small round tip (#3-5)
toothpics


place sprinkles in a small dish (i just use a measuring 1/2 cup)
roll the edge of the macaron in the sprinkles so that all of the edges are covered


use the icing and create your desired shape
while still wet, dip into sprinkles or shake sprinkles onto the icing
use the toothpick to manuver the icing and sprinkles into a more precise shape



i created this set of heart and "love" macarons but 
it would be so cute to have "XOXO" or spell out "i love you"
have fun and be creative! 
can't you just see this for so many other occasions?
i can. and you will probably see them soon ;)
