DIY Conversation Heart Macarons (and video tutorial!)

Well, my friends, today is a big day. Not just because gigantic DIY conversation hearts are now a thing, but also because I’m officially a YouTuber. Would’ve never seen that day coming three years ago, but alas, I’m now among the masses. Funny thing is I now have a new appreciation for the 12 year old superstar YouTubers that can actually work those video settings like a pro. I, on the other hand, had to watch a video on how to edit all of the random video codes so take it easy on me since I’m a beginner.

Now back to cookies! Since conversation hearts are kind of like the candy corn of Valentine’s Day (a staple that’s pretty to look at, but not so popular to eat), I decided to revolutionize them for the masses with giant, cookie versions. I mean, can that even go wrong?! It also helps that our studio is above a bakery that’s willing to make giant heart macarons for you on the fly (thanks Tout Suite!). You can click through to see the full tutorial AND video for these guys, right here…

To mix the edible gold “paint” to write the messages with, you’ll pour two teaspoons of lemon extract in a small bowl then add a dash of edible gold dust, and stir. Keep stirring until the dust has completely dissolved into the extract, then paint a test word on a food safe plate to see if it’s the right consistency.

If you feel it’s too runny, add a bit more dust to thicken it up, or vice versa if it’s too thin.

Next, paint your sayings onto each macaron just like you would paint letters on anything else. It’s easiest to make quick thin strokes for each letter, if possible.

To make the lips, I just quickly brushed on the paint in the shape of lips off to the side of some of the cookies. The trick is to not make them look too perfect, but instead leave heavy brushstrokes to appear like real lip lines.
