Hey! Before we get to this deliciousness, don’t forget to head over and vote on Better Homes and Gardens blogger awards! Lovely Indeed is a top 10 finalist for favorite DIY blog, and if you love the lovely you should go tell ’em so. Vote right here. I thank you from the bottom of my gold leafed toes.
And now! I hereby present to you the easiest, fanciest food DIY project you could possibly imagine. What’s better than gold stuff? Edible gold stuff. And since St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner, you can make yourself and your friends a fancy little pot of gold macarons for nibbling while you celebrate!
- edible gold paint
- paintbrush (be sure it’s one you only use for food, not one you’ve used for paint)
Make Time: 5 Minutes
I have another secret for you, too. Do you maybe live in a place where there just ain’t a macaron shop on every corner? Dudes, go to the Trader Joe’s freezer aisle! They have frozen macarons there by the desserts, and they’re totally tasty, not to mention pretty. Problem solved.
So. Get yourself some macarons from your favorite macaron spot, and get yourself some of that edible gold. Then just brush it right on! The end. After some experimenting, I decided that I liked it in a kind of painterly swash just across one side. Very professional, you know.
That’s it! Set them out at your St. Patrick’s Day celebration, or just eat them all on the couch while you watch Dance Moms. No? Just Me?… xoxo
