Mike from Semi Sweet Designs shows you how to transform ordinary macarons into an edible delight for any Star Wars fan. A self-professed geek and cookie blogger since 2011, Mike provides tips and recipes for his original cookie designs some even inspired by his love of TV, sci-fi movies and pop culture like these amazing Star Wars macarons.
To celebrate May the 4th, Mike baked up some Chewbacca macarons made with chocolate macaron shells with a chocolate ganache filling, R2-D2 macarons made of white, almond-flavored macaron shells with a vanilla buttercream center tinted blue and Death Star macarons which are lemon-flavored macaron shells with a vanilla buttercream filling.
“For the Star Wars macarons, I decided to do three different designs fans of the series will hopefully recognize. After the macaron shells were baked, I decorated the tops with royal icing. The picture below shows the steps to create a simplified representation of Chewbacca and his iconic metal sash.”
Learn how to make all 3 flavors on Semi Sweet Designs, and good luck, as Mike says “macarons [have] a reputation of being challenging because their baking process can be very temperamental.” Thankfully, Mike has provided links and videos to help get you (and me) started.
