Friends themed party

This September marks the 25th anniversary of FRIENDS. It's been 25 years since the show was created, yet it's still as relevant and funny in today's world. It's age agnostic - fans of FRIENDS range from old to the young. Watching the show makes you feel like Chandler, Joey, Ross, Rachel, Monica and Phoebe are all really your friends. It teaches so many life lessons - one of the biggest takeaway is that life doesn't always go smoothly, but you'll be okay with a strong support group. There's so many more reasons as to why FRIENDS is the best show ever.

That is why FRIENDS is my ultimate favourite show of all time.

I have rewatched all 10 seasons more than 5 times and I still find all the jokes so funny. In fact, some episodes get funnier the more you watch it (it's unexplainable). FRIENDS has helped me to tide through bad times, de-stress, and make a good day even better.

To celebrate FRIENDS 25th Anniversary, I baked these FRIENDS themed macarons! Perfect for a FRIENDS themed party.

The designs include:

• Iconic FRIENDS couch (how could I leave it out?) and a Central Perk mug 

• Purple door and yellow frame from Monica's apartment

• Ross' "Frankie Says Relax" shirt (that Rachel loves)

• "PIVOT" speech bubble (one of the funniest moments of all time from the show)

• A lobster (because "he's her lobster 🦞)

• Last but not least, the FRIENDS logo!

Amongst the macarons, the couch was the hardest and most time consuming to pipe out. This is because of the details involved in the back of the couch. To really make it look like the quilting in the couch, pipe alternate sections and let them dry slightly before filling the other sections out. Watch the video below for the demonstration.

1 Large Macaron Couch

[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. [Basic Macaron Tutorial Video]
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 till the ingredients just start to combine.
4. Then, split the batter and continue to macaronage process, until you get a molten-like mixture and drips down like a ribbon when lifted. Transfer to piping bags.

5. Pipe out batter onto parchment paper. You can make a template to ensure the shells match (remember to flip the image for the back shell!) Pipe on the other details with the relevant batter colours. Please watch my video for the full demonstration of how to pipe the shell.
6. Let the shells dry in a non humid place or in 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 for the regular  sized macarons, and 20 to 25 minutes for the large macaron couch (keep an eye on the macaron shells, as it depends on your oven and size of the macaron).
8. Let shells cool before removing from parchment paper. Then, pipe with filling and chill for at least 3 hours (best to leave overnight). Enjoy!
