Here’s a modern spin on that sweet treat with all the traditional Mardi Gras hues. They’re soft, creamy, colorful and delicious. And yes, you have to hide a baby inside; it’s tradition, of course!

    I made these, following the recipe exactly. They look great but are too sweet. Also, the filling is 3X the amount needed for the shells. So, I have a giant tupperware of too sweet frosting..I've tried store bought macarons and feel the flavored fillings are a better contrast to the shell, than the vanilla. I love the texture of the shells – thin and crisp shell that collapses into smooth creaminess. I'd love to hear comments from others who've made the recipe.
