Mummified Macarons

Vanilla macarons decorated with a spooky twist!



  • Preheat the oven to 150C, beat the egg whites until foamy, add the salt, cream of tartar, sugar and vanilla. Whip until stiff peaks form.

  • Sift the almond flour and icing sugar into the mixture and fold into the egg mixture. Pop the mixture into a piping bag and pipe out one inch rounds on to a baking tray lined with baking paper. Tap the pan hard 3 times to release the air bubbles then leave to sit for 20 to 30 minutes.


  • While the macarons bake for 20 minutes, whisk the softened butter until pale, add the icing sugar one spoon at a time while whisking then add the vanilla and whip until light, creamy and fluffy. Once the macarons have cooled, sandwich them together using the buttercream.

  • Now for the fun part! Using a mixture of water and icing sugar, drizzle icing lines over the macarons and add googly eyes!
