This garden-inspired macaron design uses watercolor and a bit of artistic skill with a paint brush. From Sugar and Cloth, the DIY Floral Macarons give the popular French treat a Spring-like makeover.

The floral watercolor desserts were inspired by Rifle Paper Co. stationery and make a tasty Mother's Day gift. Or if you are into entertaining, the macaron design makes a stunning table center piece when paired with fresh bay leaves.

If you want to recreate this decoration vibe, you will need materials including edible food markers, gel food coloring, almond extract, edible gold food paint, a food-dedicated paint brush and either almond or vanilla-flavored macarons. You can either make them at home or purchase them elsewhere.
