Prepare 600 grams of FunCakes Mix for Macarons as indicated on the package. Divide the batter into two portions, colour one portion red and the other one pink. Place each portion in a different decorating bag with decorating tip #2A. Place the macaron mats on a baking tray and fill the cavities with the macaron batter. In case of the heart shapes, help the batter a bit by pushing it in the right form using a cocktail stick. Tap the baking plate on the counter a few times to get rid of air bubbles and let it then air dry for two hours.
Preheat the oven to 140°C (convection oven 130°C).
Bake the macarons in the preheated oven for 15 – 20 minutes and let it cool down completely on the macaron mat.
Paint nice little roses and leafs on several macarons using the edible paint and let this dry.
Prepare 125 grams of FunCakes Mix for Buttercream as indicted on the package and add raspberry flavour to taste. Put the buttercream in a decorating bag, cut off a little tip and fill the macarons.
Melt 50 grams of both flavours melts in different bowls in the microwave and fill two decorating bags with it. Place the macarons on a piece of baking paper and drizzle the melted melts over the macarons. Place them in the fridge in order for the melts to harden.
