My Little Boy is a big fan of Angry Birds. He loves the game, the stories, and anything that relates to it. I guess his admiration level on Angry Birds can compare to my Baby Girl’s love for Hello Kitty. And you can imagine, my whole house is filled with birds and kitties…well, and pigs, specifically the pigs from Angry Birds. If you know the “story” of the Angry Birds, you know these piggies are actually the “bag guys”! hahaha….so I think it’s okay to eat them up?
Why Angry Bird Piggy Macarons? Well, it happened in an ordinary afternoon….my Little Boy was enjoying his Chocolate Mint French Macarons. Then, he simply asked me if I can make them into Angry Bird Piggy macarons! Maybe the green colors of the mints macarons reminds him of these piggies? Of course I had to say yes. So, here we go! Angry Bird Piggy Chocolate Mint French Macarons were born! It’s so nice that my kids always give me recipe inspiration and what to create next. It’s actually quite fun to play with and decorate the macarons and turn them into something unexpected! So, I have many more requests from the kids on what to make after these!
To decorate these little piggies, I simply piped some melted white chocolate to create the eyes, and attached some black sprinkles as the eyeballs. Then, I tinted the white chocolate with a little green food coloring for the snouts and ears. I used these candy decorating pen to draw the eyebrows and crown (for the King Pig), and that was quick and easy. I hope that you’re inspire to create some fun characters for your next baking project, too.
