DIY Bridesmaid Proposal Macaron Message!

/ Saturday, May 16, 2015

No one can say no to a delicious-elegant French macaron, especially from Laduree! Which is why I strategically proposed to a bridesmaid for our upcoming wedding with this adorable edible message. Looking for a DIY bridesmaid proposal for your own wedding? This is the perfect place to start...

First off, I'm so curious: Can you get macarons where you live? We're kind of spoiled here in New York City. And I know LA has killer macaron because Leah from Freutcake took me to Bottega Louie during my last visit and geeeeeez was it amazing—she knows all of the best places!

So here's the deal with this easy wedding DIY project: You're going to buy some food coloring pens, like these Gourmet Writer Food Decorator Pens, then you're going to carefully unbox your macarons and write B-R-I-D-E-S-M-A-I-D-? on top, one letter per cookie. Got it?

MAKES: 1 proposal 

1 dozen French macarons
1 food coloring pen
Platter or box, for presentation 

1. Carefully unpack the macarons from their packaging. They're fragile!
2. With your food coloring pen, write 1 letter on each macaron to spell out B-R-I-D-E-S-M-A-I-D-?-?
3. Return the macarons to their packaging or arrange on a platter, making sure your mate can actually see the letters and what they spell out? 
4. Go get that girl! 

Friends, would you say yet to a macaron proposal? Brides, would you try this sweet little DIY? xo Erin
