Download the template and print it. When you are ready to make macarons, place template under your baking mat and pipe egg shaped macarons. 

To make these Egg shaped macarons we need:


There are two ways to pipe Egg Shaped Macarons

1. Pipe the eggs by going around the outline of the egg with the pipping bag as you apply pressure to release batter, and then end in the center. 

2. Pipe circle first over the center of macaron template. Then still squeezing the bag a little less, move up to form a shape of an egg. 

I would recommend trying both ways and see which one works better for you. 

Tip from Marina: remove the template before baking macarons.

How to assemble macarons

Find the best matched egg shaped macaron shells. Pipe the filling on each bottom shell and then top with another shell. For filling recipes click here.  Transfer filled macarons into airtight container and refrigerate for 12 hours or overnight. Macarons need to “mature” before you can enjoy them.

How to decorate Egg Shaped Macarons

Mix some brown (or black) food coloring in a small bowl with a dash of vodka. Dip toothbrush or pain brush into the food coloring mixture and then flick the toothbrush against the fork to splatter the food coloring in the shells and to create the speckles. For these macarons I used gold food coloring. I mixed with vodka too. 

Tip from Marina: to avoid any mass and painted fingers I recommend wearing gloves when decorating macarons.

You can decorate macarons and then “mature” in the fridge. Or you can decorate macarons right before serving. I’ve done both ways and macarons were fine. Paint does not take long to dry.

How to store macarons

Store filled macarons in an airtight container right away, until ready to serve. Macarons are good in the fridge for 2-3 days (depends on the filling) and up to 6 months in the freezer. Allow to macarons 10-15 minutes to come to room temperature before serving.
