We Bare Bear Macaron Recipe

We Bare Bear is my current favourite cartoon that I watch, in fact, it's the only cartoon that I watch these days. My guilty pleasure is searching for episodes to watch online. They manage to lift my spirits if I'm feeling down. 

Who are the We Bare Bears? 
"Grizzly, Panda and Ice Bear are three adopted bear brothers struggling against their animal instincts to fit into the civilized, modern human world. The brothers stack atop one another when they leave their cave and explore the hipster environment of the San Francisco Bay Area."

My favourite is Ice Bear, because he really reminds me of my hubby. They are both men of few words, they LOVE the cold and hate the heat, and both so cuddly πŸ˜‚I often tell him that he doesn't belong in hot and humid Singapore, and should migrate to a country with colder climate like Canada. 

We Bare Bear Macaron Recipe

I baked these We Bare Bear macarons for Christmas, and so they are wearing cute, tiny Santa hats πŸ˜†They weren't too complicated to bake because if you are baking all of them in a single batch, you only need 2 base batter colours - White and Brown. This means you only need 2 large piping bags, and smaller piping bags for the other details. Sometimes when I bake multiple designs at once, I might need up to 6 different base batter colours - which really complicates things a lot because there's more mixing, etc.

[For Macaron Shells] 
1. Make the meringue. In a bowl, beat the egg whites on low speed using an electric mixer until it is white and frothy (approximately 1 minute). Gradually add the sugar 1/4 at a time. When the first addition of sugar has completely dissolved (approximately 1 minute later), increase the mixer speed to medium and add until all the sugar has been incorporated. Continue to beat until stiff peaks form.
2. Sift the almond flour and icing sugar to the meringue.
3. Begin macaronage. Using a spatula, start the macaronage process by folding and lightly scraping the top of the batter. Continue until the wet and dry ingredients just start to become combined. In other words, you can't see traces/clumps of almond flour/icing sugar in the meringue. At this point, the batter should still be quite tacky.
4. Prepare different colours of batter based on the table below. Apart from white batter, add food colouring and continue the macaronage, then transfer to piping bags. Use a medium round tip for base batter, and a small round tip for deco batter.

5. Pipe out batter onto parchment paper. Please refer to video above for demonstration.
6. Let the shells dry in a non humid place or an air conditioned room. You should be able to touch it gently with the tip of your finger without it sticking.
7. Bake in a preheated oven at 150°C for approximately 15 minutes.
8. Let shells cool and pipe with your desired filling. Enjoy~
