Mini unicorn macarons with wings dusted in gold luster dust, metallic paint and fondant decorations. These are filled with either espresso buttercream or jasmine buttercream. If you love coffee, the espresso buttercream macarons are delicious!

When a friend joins you for a weekend baking session, you bust out all the fun stuff and go all out! The last time I had a friend over, we made these super cute unicorn macarons. This time it includes a pegasus and unicorn macaron combination. Yes, that means colorful wings, horns and all things shimmery.
Mini Unicorn Macarons Notes
- Fondant flower decoration pieces – Wilton’s white fondant mixed with Americolor gel food coloring. I’d suggesting using disposable gloves when mixing the colors. Roll out your fondant and use a tiny flower puncher or leaf puncher.
- Gold luster dust – Mix a little bit of gold with 2 drops of vodka until it forms a paste. Then use a food safe brush to dab on the areas you’d like with gold. A good rule of thumb is the horn and inner ears area. Wings are optional.
- Metallic Pink, Blue and Purple – dab each wing section with a bit of color and blend. Ombre effect was used for pink bottom, blue medium, and purple top. All of this was an experiment, so have fun and just go with it.
- Wings – used fondant mold and then dusted with gold. Let wings dry a bit before dabbing on paint. You’ll know it’s ready when it’s a bit firmer to touch. Playing with fondant is like play-doh or polymer clay…except edible.
- Eyes and cheeks – Wilton’s edible food markers
- Assembly – Pipe buttercream on bottom shell. Then stick on the wings. Add a bit of buttercream on top shell to hold pieces in.
