Pink Macarons with an Organic Strawberry Acai Buttercream topped with Fleur De Sel

FINALLY! Successful Macarons!!

It took 3 times and it finally worked… I learned from all this that “Patience pays off!” Initially it was the whole “waiting” thing that I failed at during the first 2 attempts. But I did it and it worked.

I followed this specific Strawberry Macaron Recipe but of course I changed just a few things...

When making the Macarons I completely ommited the “Strawberry Flavor” because I only wanted the strawberry to come from buttercream. The food coloring I used is made by “India Tree.” It completely natural food coloring made from Vegetables. (AWESOME!!) I also sprinkled to tops on the Macarons with a coarse Fleur De Sel. Now the buttercream, instead of using Vanilla I used 1 teaspoon of Acai Berry Powder. Then, I substituted the heavy cream with Organic Sour Cream to give it a little more tang since its super sweet from the powdered sugar.

Im so excited about these little cuties and I hope you will be too!

BIG HUG for this one 🙂
