Delicious macarons with swiss meringue buttercream


I got so inspired by the fabulous tutorial that Linda from Call Me Cupcake made for CakeJournal last week. Yesterday I made some delicious macarons with swiss meringue buttercream filling. Up until then I had tried two different macaron recipes and I must say that I think Linda’s is by far the best. In addition to a great recipe her step by step instructions was very easy to follow so I felt really safe, when I threw myself into the macaron making.

I still need to learn more about the coloring of the macarons though. As I was aiming for a nice spring green color (used almost a whole pot of my favourite powdered food color) but ended up with a rather pale green instead. So any good advise will be much appreciated.

Piping the macarons was one of the parts where I had forgot how tricky this acctually is. It takes a little practice piping the perfect round macaron. I did manage to get the hang of it after the first baking sheet. My second one was much better and overall I am extremely happy with my result.

Macarons with swiss meringue filling

I have filled my macarons with swiss meringue buttercreme. The feeling of biting into the crisp and chewey macaron is just devine. I would love to hear if you have tried the macarons and please share any good tips that you have.

Happy Caking!
