DIY Marbled Macarons
Beautify your macarons with a simple ingredient!
To start, you can tape down a sheet of wax paper to work on or you can just use paper plates if you’re not making that many. Even better than shaving cream? Whipped cream!
Use a spatula to smear a thin layer of whipped cream or cool whip onto your plate or wax paper. This is what you’ll be dipping the macarons in!
Using toothpicks, create a design in the whipped cream.Below is a photo of what our food color patterns looked like to achieve each marbled effect. The more color, the more covered and “watercolor-ish” the macron will look.If you’re scarce with the color, it will yield a more marbled effect.
Once you have your color pattern, place the macaron on top of the whipped cream. Make sure the sides get covered by VERY gently rolling it in the cream
Lift the macaron back up and wait about 30 second to let the food color sink into the cookie.
Now dab the whipped cream excess off on un-patterned paper towels.You can gently wipe the cream off if you’d like a more brushstroke effect.
