Macarons with Vanilla Buttercream and Strawberry Rhubarb Pate de Fruit
For Gretchen and Rob’s upcoming wedding, Liz was participating in the dessert table and bringing some homemade macarons.
Adding a few sprinkles to offset the color and texture slightly.
This is part of the interior of the macaron: a strawberry rhubarb pate de fruit (rhubarb was from the Logan Square Farmers Market).
A row filled with a layer of vanilla buttercream and topped with the fruit.
A dollop on the fruit, to help fix the top half of the macaron in place.
The completed macarons. Liz got lots of really great compliments about the macarons at the wedding, and they disappeared pretty quickly off the dessert table. The more macarons I eat, the more I love these guys.
