All for one and one for all
Musk Stick Macarons X 3 = Barbie and the Three Musketeers
I've decided to join a new online baking group. Mac Tweets is an online group of macaron loving peers who set a challenge for each month. It's not a strict make this exact recipe kind of challenge but a theme and this month the challenge was movies.
Wow I had lots of ideas, but I went with this one for a couple of reasons, namely that Barbie and the three muskateers must have been played in this house 50 times in the last month and also I really loved the idea of this edible stick.
Not sure about elsewhere but here in Australia those Wilton cookie sticks cost me $11 for a bag of 20, and then I feel really bad about the wastage when I throw them away after one use.
See my new macaron pop invention is not just yummy but it's also environmentally friendly and economical. Totally a win win situation.
For this recipe I used my rose macaron recipe and at the stage where you join the 2 macarons together I just popped in a musk stick. Make sure you have enough filling and that it's a sturdy type of filling like ganache.
and that's not the only idea I had for this new revolutionary cookie stick replacer, watch this blog and I'll have another special sweet something I came up with for you soon.
Maybe if I put it in black and white it'll look a little more refined and I can pretend it's one of the older classic three musketeer movies.
Blog round up for MacTweets this month is the 15th August so check out the site if you love macarons for lots of lovely pics and great ideas from the other members.
