Mmmm. Mutton.

In my macaron-baking experiments this week, I attempted these sweet little lambs. Not too baaaad, if I do say so myself.

I discovered, after my first failed batch, that you need to leave the macaron batter a little stiffer than normal if you want to pipe a nice fluffy, wooly surface. I ended up using mini Oreos for the black sheep heads, black licorice for the legs and ears, and a decorator heart for the nose. The eyes are a genius, time-saving item I found at our local baking supply store, Cake Stuff. I think I've seen them at Jo Anne Crafts too. I loved them so much, I bought three packages, in three different sizes. I don't know who's job it is to make googley sugar eyes all day, but THANK YOU, whoever you are.
