Love Shaped Macarons

First, it was the macaron making craze, now my macaron mania to try different shape is gaining more and more momentum. Once you master the basic of making macarons, indeed you may start to play around with different shapes, flavour & decorations.

This is my first attempt to make macarons into different shape. Instead of classic round macarons, I made them into love shaped. Few of my friends were surprised, and asked me how am I doing it (i.e do you use any love shape macarons mold or so on?). My answer to them is sorry nope, I do not even draw any love shapes on my baking paper beforehand. Sometimes, free hand piping is easier to manage. Again, practice makes perfect and I believe everyone can do it as well.

To your surprise, I did see the special round macarons mold selling in Australia here. Too bad, I did not buy any.

See one my love shaped macarons has half heart gone after a bite. Crispy outside, chewy inside and all melted into your mouth of every single bites.
