Dip-Dye Macarons with More Than a Sprinkling of Fairy Dust

I do LOVE being invited to be part of a wedding shoot – it’s such a great opportunity to be creative and to meet with other talented wedding professionals. When I was asked if I would like to join a Flower Fairy meets Dip-Dye photo shoot being organised by Megan from Typical Type and Tiree from Tiree Dawson Photography I jumped at the chance – the line up of wedding professionals was A* and Askham Hall just a stunning back-drop.

So how to dip-dye a macaron? I did try a dip-dye effect on my macarons by painting the shells but I wasn’t pleased with the finished result so I decided to create a dip-dye effect by using piping in graduated colours. The common thread between the Flower Fairy and Dip-Dye theme was glitter and gold so to each macaron shell a little bit of edible gold leaf was added. I was so pleased with the overall result.

Ombre piped macaron favours

For my wedding macaron cake I again created a dip-dye effect but this time by producing a dusky pink ombre tower dressed with whispy foliage and co-ordinating flowers arranged by Michelle at Valerie Ann’s. The festoon and LITTLE hearts from Typical Type made the whole atmosphere truly magical – totally flower fairies.
