This DIY macaron decoration makes these French desserts look almost too good to eat. From the blog Sugar and Cloth, the marbled macarons don't actually involve baking the color into the treats.
To try this at home, you will need almond or vanilla (white in color) macarons, gel food colors in the color palette of your choice, tooth picks, non-patterned paper towels, waxed paper and whipped cream or Cool Whip. You can also use gold foil if you want.
Using the toothpicks you can create a design in the cream, which is then transferred onto the macarons, resulting in a vibrant and unique water color-esque macaron decoration. Adding edible gold dust is an optional but very pretty choice to put on top.
