Macarons with Edible Ink for Cake Banners

Edible ink on @lette macaronsAfter being introduced to Lette Macarons I got all kinds of ideas of how to use those tasty little treats in various ways.  While I love cake banners, I wanted to do something different.  I realized that edible ink could turn these beautiful little cookies in to the perfect little billboards for cake messages.


Macarons on a stickThese are super easy to make.  Just use cake pop sticks (found at every craft store) and slide them in to one side of the macaron.

Use macarons to make signs for cakeThen all you need to do is use edible markers (also found at craft stores) and find someone with way better writing than you…in this case, Lauren.  Duh.

Cake signs with edible ink on macaronsYou can write any message you want.  These can be for any kind of celebration.  And the best part?  You can totally eat the entire thing (minus the stick, don’t be dumb).

Lette Macaron tastingAnd if you have never had the chance to do a macaron tasting, grab some friends, buy a dozen and check them out.  Big thank you to Lette Macarons for providing the macarons for this post.  Their passion fruit, violet and earl grey are my FAVE.  I was also blown away by the coffee one.  So tasty!  See my introduction to Lette Macarons here.

*I was provided macarons by Lette Macarons,   Fashion Island for use in this post.  No further compensation was provided.
