Fondant Decorated Macarons






Hi Cake Sweeties

My dear friend Cici just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl last month. She is now out of confinement (Mandarin literally means “sitting out the month.” During the first 30 days, mothers are expected to remain at homes and follow a complex set of rules to care for themselves).

That also means Baby Chealsea is officially one month old today… Hip Hip Hooray

Mummy asked me if I could make her some macarons favors to express their gratitude to all their friends for their support and well wishes their friends have shown them (In Chinese culture as I previously stated when Miss E was one month old, a baby’s first month birthday calls for a celebration. Traditionally, the parents hand out red-dyed eggs or cakes, symbolising happiness and the renewal of life).

We chose three flavours with three designs decorated with fondant. Inspired by Sweet Boo from Facebook.

The first flavour is hazelnut filled with dark chocolate ganache and decorated as the little girl from Little Twin Stars. The next flavour is lemon filled with lemon curd and decorated with a green bow on top. The third flavour is vanilla tinted a bit pink food colouring, which is filled with organic strawberry jam and decorated with Baby Chelsea’s initials and hearts on the top to symbolise the headpiece she will be wearing when she grows up.

What an intense few days but the result is awesome.
