DIY Macaron Christmas Tree Decorating Kit Instructions

& Buttercream Recipe

Your kit consists of Four Macaron of various sizes, a piping bag, a star tip and a bag of decorating sprinkles including your star for the top of the tree!

Make sure to add enough buttercream to hold the next layer and allow for decorating!

Once your assembly is complete its time to decorate the tree! Utilize your bag of sprinkles or make a batch of royal icing to drip or lace around the tree!

Cut the tip of your bag just enough to allow your pastry tip to sit in it without obstruction. Next fill it with your buttercream. Start your first layer by piping straight up and down.

Continue on until you've built all your layers. Don't worry, if your tree is a little lopsided just shift it or lift your cookie and apply more buttercream.

Now its time to gobble up your creation! Happy Holidays and Thank you!!
