Sprinkles For Breakfast Macaron Recipes How to Make Kitten Macarons

Fun Macaron Decorating Ideas For Kids

Last week I made the desserts for a Cat Themed 2nd Birthday Party. I made an adorable Cat Cake, some Sprinkle & Swirl Bark, Yarn Ball Cake Pops, and these Kitten Macarons. The Kitten Macarons were such a big hit, I decided to share the recipe with you guys.

I, myself am not a huge cat fan. Every time I come across one I feel like it is contemplating whether or not it should attack me or ignore me (which in my opinion, are both rude).

I used my classic Vanilla Macaron Recipe with a few adjustments to turn them into these adorable little kitty cats. I just added ears when I was piping (pictured at the top of this post), and used edible pens to make the faces. Pretty simple, right?

HOW TO MAKE KITTEN MACARONS

5 from 1 vote

Ingredients
  

MACARON SHELLS

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup + 2 tbs almond flour
  • 3 eggs whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Gray food coloring
  • Edible Pens
  • Round Piping Tips

VANILLA BUTTERCREAM FILLING

  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 1 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pink food coloring

Instructions
 

For the shells:

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Prepare one pipping bag (I like to use the bigger 16" piping bags like these) with an Ateco 804 tip, and one bag with a Ateco 803 tip. Also prepare baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, sift almond flour and powdered sugar together. Set aside.
  • In a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, beat egg whites on high speed until they form soft peaks.
  • Lower the mixer's speed to medium and add sugar.
  • Put mixer back on the highest speed and beat until they form stiff peaks.
  • With the mixer still on high speed, add food coloring a few drops at a time until you get desired color.
  • Take bowl off of mixer and add almond flour/sugar mixture.
  • Using a rubber spatula, aggressively fold in dry ingredients until the batter starts to loosen and becomes a little runny. To test if the batter is ready, lift a small amount of batter from the bowl and drop it back into the batter. If it does nothing, keep mixing. If it slowly melts back into the batter after 20-30 seconds, it is ready.
  • Put batter (about 1/3 of the mixture) into prepared pipping bag and cover the rest of the batter with saran wrap.
  • Pipe 1 1/2" circles (with Ateco 804 tip) on prepared baking sheets. Then add two smaller circles (with Ateco 801 tip) for "ears" on each larger circle.
  • Firmly tap the bottom of the tray so the batter flattens out.
  • Let them rest for 30-45 minutes until they form a skin.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until they are set.
  • Let cool before peeling them off parchment paper.

For the buttercream:

  • In a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, cream butter until it is soft and smooth.
  • Add powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla and mix until light and fluffy.

Notes

*If you do not have enough baking sheets to pipe all the batter, cover the remaining batter with plastic wrap until you are ready to pipe a new batch.
*Makes about 22 macarons
