Instantly elevate your macaron game with these 3 easy methods to make marbled macarons!
Once you master your basic macarons, you may want to graduate from plain shells to something a little fancy.
I don’t fancy myself with elaborate character macarons (I leave that job to the artists!). Instead I marble my macarons, when I want something a little special.
3 ways to make marbled macarons:
Yes, you can marble your macarons different ways. Each method yields a unique effect and each has its own charm.
Method 1: True Marble
Let’s name this method a “True Marble”.
For this method, you’ll need 2-3 (or more) colored batters. Watch this video on how to make 3 different colors out of a single macaron batch.
- Lay a plastic sheet on the counter.
- Pour the colored macaron batters on the plastic sheet in whatever pattern you like.
- Gently wrap the plastic sheet into a tube and transfer it into a piping bag fitted with round tip.
- Now, pipe the shells on the prepared baking sheet.
Method 2: Tie Die
I feel like this is the easiest method of all for marbled macarons. You just need 1 color batter and however many gel food colorings you want.
- Using a long wooden stick or small brush, draw a line with a food coloring inside a piping bag, fitted with a round tip.
- Add the batter into the prepared bag and pipe out the shells.
Method 3: Swirl Design
This’s my favorite method. It creates such chic-looking macarons.
- Pipe a few regular macaron shells.
- Then using another color batter pipe 4-5 small dots on top of the shells.
- Using a toothpick, swirl the two colors, creating marbled look.
