Stitch Shaped French Macaron
Stitch Shaped French Macaron Tutorial
Hi Guys! The tutorial for creating Stitch shaped macaron is now live! Yeah!!!
I am a huge fan of Disney Stitch and so is my daughter. If we can have all things Stitch we would haha.
I had the pleasure of turning her entire bedroom into Stitch land. I even painted a giant mural of Stitch on her wall and converted a surf board into a desk!
So making a french macaron of Stitch was only fitting.
Starting with a great batter is of course essential to your success with making character macarons. I have a macaron 101 class that you're welcome to purchase that will walk you through how to successfully make the batter!
French macaron piping order is the key!
Just like making royal iced cookies, it's important to layer on the colors in a specific order to achieve the desired look. Please don't rush but work fast and methodical.
For the Stitch macaron, its a little easier because he's just one color and the rest of him was hand painted work.

- I love using a silicon mat. The one in the video is from Amazon called Aprince. Not sure if they're still selling them.
- Tipless piping bags are also from Amazon. Just your basic one. Nothing fancy.
- Piping tip round size 10
I prefer to bake all my macarons at 270 F for 20-25 min and on convection oven setting.
YES. I rest my piped macarons until they develop a nice skin. Resting time varies depending on the humidity inside your home. Having a humidity monitor is a great idea! I prefer to bake macarons when it's less than 40% humidity. Again, please refer to the Macaron 101 video as I go into more detail about that!
