Adorable Pumpkin Macarons

October 12, 2011

Yummy Mummy is the queen when it comes to creating adorable edible treats.  You may have seen a previous post I had written on Hello Kitty French Macarons.  She has outdone herself this time with these cute pumpkin French macarons.  These macarons are the perfect treat to display ( and eat) this Halloween.  A delicate pumpkin spice macaron is sandwiched with a pumpkin frosting for one tasty harvest cookie.  Yummy Mummy shows you how to make these at home with step by step photos and instructions.
