I’m no Picasso or anything, but I’ve been dreaming up these DIY abstract art macarons for a while (ever since making this cake), and I’m just now getting around to it. Funny enough, we actually ordered a canvas giant print of that watercolor cake because I loved it so much and cake doesn’t last forever (which is a tragedy). I also have one more litttttle edible art project coming up for you too, what can I say? I’m on a watercolor kick!

Plus, how can you not love an edible craft project that you can’t mess up AND you get to eat afterwards? It’s perfect for the kids too, or you can even use them as a homemade Valentine that’s a step up from the yarn card for the fridge.  Add a painter’s palette for the full styling effect, and the next thing you know, you’ll be selling street art cookies in New York!…

There’s no real strategy to this DIY which means there’s really no going wrong! To mix “paint” colors with the gel food coloring, simply add a dash of almond extract to a bowl with a drop of gel coloring and mix with the brush, then paint on.

The food pens are great for the stronger, more vibrant colors, and the gold paint brings it all together with my token gold element. I mean, what doesn’t look better with a stroke of gold though?

Talk about almost too cute to eat! If it wasn’t a macaron, I maybe couldn’t even bring myself to do it, but who are we kidding? I love macarons.

What clever occasion would you use these little guys for?

    Wow, so stunning! I’d almost feel a little sad eating these gorgeous macs … almost.
