It's been a long time since I've made my little whales and it was so much fun! I forgot just how cute these little whales were. This time around I made them for Konrad who was celebrating his second birthday. His party theme this year was All Things In the Sea and the whales were a perfect fit. You might remember these little guys from a few years ago when I first made them. It was then that I also invented my Sincere Strawberry Cupcakes which I also made for Konrad. I topped all the cupcakes with a very generous dollop of Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream.
Konrad liked them! Here he's signing, "More"! Handsome and smart!
I'm not quite ready to share my recipe for the macarons yet, as I'm still learning myself but I will share with you the salted caramel filling I made. It was Brown Eyed Baker's Salted Carmel Frosting recipe and I highly recommend it; it's addicting! (Thank you Brown Eyed Baker!)
