Video Tutorial for Piping Unicorn Macaron Shells

I have yet another request for unicorn carousel. Since unicorns are fashionable now, I thought why not make a video tutorial on how to pipe the shells since I have made unicorn macarons many times before. I decided to draw the eyes closed with eyelashes this time, since this is the in thing now :p.

I used the reduced sugar recipe for the macaron shells here. Both regular and reduced sugar recipes can be found here. You may refer to my Creative Baking: Macarons book for a systematic presentation of the basics and complex shaped macarons. You may refer to my video tutorials for macaron basics and piping of complex shapes on the blog too.

The templates for the unicorns can be found here.

Here's the video tutorial!

I hope you found it helpful!

With love,

  1. Thank you for sharing! Did you use Italian for these beauties?

    1. Hi Lora,
      Yes I used Italian method for these :). You may find my reduced sugar recipe from the link in this post.

  2. Omg, these are the cutest! I'm definitely going to try making them =)

  3. Hello! Whether correctly I understand, for syrup you use icing sugar but not sugar?

    1. For the syrup in Italian meringue I used caster sugar :)
