Last week, I made these Strawberry Macaron Flower Pops for someone’s house warming party. I think they made quite an unique and elegant centerpiece. Don’t you agree? Best of all, they can also double duty as dessert for the gathering. How cool is that? If you have medium size glasses or vase, fill them up with sugar and you can easily arrange the flower pops on top, pretty much like arranging real flowers (I made myself sound like an expert in arranging real flowers while I had close to zero experience on that subject matter! ha!)
I absolutely adore how cute these flower pops turned out. You can check out the Strawberry macaron shells recipe here. But instead of piping them in circles, I piped some in flower shapes. Once the macaron shells are baked, simply pipe the strawberry buttercream fillings onto one shell, gently press a lollipop stick in the middle and press on another macaron shell. (I used these lollipop sticks.) Then, your Strawberry Macaron Flower Pops are ready for display and admiration!
Besides house warming parties, I think these flower pops are also perfect for bridal showers, tea parties, weddings, to celebrate Spring, or simply, just because. My little girl love them and she was so excited when she saw these pops! The smile and excitement on her face was precious! So, make some flower pops, and make someone happy. The satisfaction and happiness you’ll receive in return are priceless!
Last but not least, I want to wish you all a wonderful Easter weekend!
