I feel like I say this every week, but I’m amazed how quickly this year is flying by. Since it’s already March (HOW?!) I thought I should sneak in at least one St. Patrick’s Day related project for you all! These simple painted rainbow macarons are the perfect way to add a rainbow to a treats table, and obviously, you can enjoy them any time of the year. Food markers are such a gift to people like me who can’t actually make macarons…at least I can decorate them! Rainbow macarons are pretty, tasty and easy enough to make that anyone can since I used store-bought macarons. If you can make your own, power to you! I’m still a work in progress, ha!
There’s a French bakery near my house that sells a huge variety of macarons, so I feel like a kid in a candy store when I walk in. Grab your favorites and decorate them with this quick rainbow pattern!
- White/light colored macarons
- Food safe markers, rainbow of colors
- White royal icing
- Pastry bag
- Small round piping tip
Step 1: Draw a pink/red line along the edge of the macaron (careful, they’re fragile) so that it reaches about halfway around the circle.
Step 2: Then add the orange, yellow, green, blue and purple lines.
Step 3: Whip up a batch of royal icing (I like this recipe from Wilton) or use a store-bought version and move to a pastry bag fitted with a small round piping tip.
