Honey Bee Macarons by cakecrumbs Honey Bee Macarons by cakecrumbs
Decided to have a play with macarons and take it beyond just biscuit and flavour combos. I love making bee decorations on things so MacBees had to be my first stop.

Biscuits are almond dusted with cocoa for the stripes. They're filled with a chocolate and honeycomb ganache I made up on the fly because my other idea didn't work and it it is just incredible tasting. These are my favourite macs yet, the ganache is just to die for.

Aww ^w^. These look like something that would be a smash hit, especially at children’s birthday parties. Also, I like it how they have varying expressions.

The only improvement that comes to my mind is that you should have added something to them as their “wings”. Almond chips, perhaps? Not that I'd be able to eat them myself then, since I'm allergic to almonds DX.

Chocolate and honeycomb? Like the actual honeycomb?

I think she's referring to a kind of brittle caramel made by stirring some sodium bicarbonate into hot sugar syrup. (click) Much tastier and not as waxy as actual honeycomb. :)
