Even though macarons regularly come in a beautiful array of different colors, this macaron recipe takes decorative confections to a new level. Made by the blog Sugar and Cloth, the DIY Potted Cactus Macarons are a fun baking project and craft at the same time.
Sugary, sweet and stinking cute, the treats are cacti you won't be afraid to eat. It's not a mirage -- they really are that adorable.
To make your own at home, you'll need light and dark green edible markers, mini clay planters, mini dowel rods, brown sugar, gold spray paint and edible flowers as garnish. You can either use store-bought macarons or use a macaron recipe that includes instructions on shaping. 'Gourmet French Macarons' by Mindy Cone comes highly recommended.
