Macaron Art

If anyone knows us they know that we can't just 
be normal. At With Love & Confection we always think outside the box. We love to put our own artistic twist on everything we make. I first taught myself how to make Macarons in December 2012 (before the bakery opened) for an order placed by my shop land lady, Ann Masters. After we opened and I got the hang of making the traditional round macarons I wanted to design some shaped macarons. In December 2013 I started to develop my technique of creating different shaped macarons for Christmas.

Here is my adorable snowman macaron all in vanilla! 
He was a favorite of our dear friend Francine Bryson of The American Baking Competition.

Here is my gingerbread man macaron flavored just like gingerbread cookies and filled with white chocolate buttercream. 

And my Christmas tree macarons!

When Valentine's day came around this is what happened...

Lots of hearts!

Conversation Hearts and Red Velvet Hearts!

Of course I had to make some shamrocks for St. Patrick's Day!
Filled with Bailey's Irish Cream Ganache.

When spring came, again, macaron dreams started hopping, buzzing and fluttering around inside my head...

Our Easter Macarons were featured on Studio 62 with our friend Jamarcus Gaston.

 The bumble bees seemed to be a shop favorite.
Can't decide which is my fave!
