Raspberry Macaron Petits Fours

I made Macarons this week from a new recipe but they didn't turn 
out as pretty as I would have liked so I did the next best thing!
Made them into Petits Fours! They were especially pretty 
because I had made them in two colors - red & pink.

I made a Raspberry Buttercream filling using this recipe.
I just substituted Raspberry Jam in place of the Strawberry
Syrup called for in the recipe. It was delicious!

I piped a pretty swirl of buttercream on the macaron 
 shells (using my Wilton 1M tip) then popped a 
pretty raspberry in the middle. I finished with a 
light dusting of powdered sugar!

So my Tearoom Tip of the Day is - When
your Macarons turn out ugly, make Macaron
Petits Fours!! They were delicious!


  1. they turned out sooooo cute! You're amazing Jina! Every day comes up something delicious!!!

    1. LOL!! I was having such trouble - first with the macaron shells, then I couldn't get a good picture, so I said to heck with this! Let's make Petits Fours! They were yummy! xo Jina

  2. Hi Tina,
