And so... the secret is out! I've been baking a little one for the past 39 weeks. She is such a blessing in our lives and I'm so thankful to have her, and to finally hold her πŸ₯°Looking forward to our time together and hopefully, we can bake together in the future πŸ‘©πŸ»‍πŸ³πŸ‘©πŸ»‍🍳

To welcome her arrival, I baked some baby themed macarons - milk bottles, baby rompers (with her initial), dumplings (cause she's my lil dumplin'), and heart macarons. Can't decide which is my favourite among the designs, as they are all so cute.

These macaron designs will be great for baby showers! The baby shower macaron designs only makes use of 2 batter colours - white and baby pink - which means less hassle. By keeping within 2 colours, it also helps to tie all the designs together so that they match. You can switch the colour to one of your choice. 

Watch the video below if you are keen to bake them!

Directions
[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. Split the batter in half to make white and baby pink batter (add a bit of red food colouring to get the baby pink batter). Continue to macaronage, then transfer to piping bags. Refer to table below for the batter colours per design. Tip: Use a small 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~
