Prepare 300 g FunCakes Mix for Macarons Gluten Free according to the instructions on the package and colour it with the colour gel in the desired colour.
Put the batter in a decorating bag with nozzle #1A and pipe caps on the macaron mat. Allow to air dry for 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 140°C (hot air oven 130°C) and bake the macarons for about 18-20 minutes.
The macarons should have a nice smooth wrinkle-free surface and stand on a base.
Leave the macarons to cool on the mat before removing them.
Prepare 125 g FunCakes Mix for Buttercream according to the instructions on the package and colour it in the same colour of the macaron.
Melt some purple FunCakes Deco Melts according to the instructions on the packaging and place in a decorating bag. Drizzle purple Deco Melts over half of the shells and on the other half, using the largest brush in the set, make a swipe with gold paint.
Put the FunCakes Buttercream in a decorating bag with #18 and put some lemon curd in another decorating bag. Pipe a circle of little stars on the inside of the shell and fill the middle part with lemon curd. Cover it with the shell.
Store the macarons in a closed box in the fridge.
