Nerdie Foodie: Nerdy Macarons

Hello Foodies! Happy Good Friday to you all! In case you missed the Easter post, have no fear, the link to that post is here! Now if you know me, I love macarons and I love making macarons. Macarons are a great medium to be creative! Let’s see what you can create with a simply macaron batter dyed in different colours! Let’s go!

There are a few different methods to making macarons including baking times, oven temperatures, Italian meringue method, French meringue method, Swiss meringue method, rotate the pan during baking time, do not rotate pan during baking time, etc. But if you already have a tried and true method to making these finicky yet delicious desserts, go ahead and stick with that. If this is your first attempt at making these, don’t fret! Most of these videos have a full step-by-step tutorial from beginning to end. It does take a couple few…dozen…tries before you find a method that works for you and your oven. Most of all, have fun and get creative! There are endless flavour combinations and nerdy imagination!

Honey & Butter

Pawel and Leanne are the owners of Honey & Butter (Website & Instagram). Their character macarons are Out. Of. This. World. I’m totally serious. I have never been to Costa Mesa in California before and it never was on my bucket list of places to travel to. Now I have a reason to go visit Costa Mesa and a reason why Costa Mesa is on my travelling bucket list is because of these limited daily-themed macarons (once they are sold out, they are sold out for the day) on top of their regular macs. So if you’re ever in the area and you’re craving a character macaron (everything from Toy Story to tsum tsums to Pusheen in an ice cream cone), check this place out (they will be opening their very first store front very soon)! Leanne’s creative and artistic skills are both something that I aspire to attain one day when I too can become the master of the mac.

Stay nerdalicious!
