Are you familiar with the Guai Qiao Bao Bao (aka Loveable Baby) character that is commonly found in Whatsapp/Telegram/WeChat stickers? 

He is one of my favourite emojis to use when chatting online with friends, as he is so adorable and expressive.

I really enjoyed making these Guai Qiao Bao Bao macarons. Email me if at hello@sumopocky.com if you'd like the macaron template!

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. For decoration, scoop out and prepare 1 teaspoon each of red, black and pink batter. Transfer to a piping bag with a small tip. To the remaining batter, continue to macaronage, until you get a molten-like mixture and drips down like a ribbon when lifted. Then transfer this white batter to piping bags with tip approximately 0.5cm diameter. 
5. Pipe out shells 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~
