Macaron Christmas Tree

December 25, 2011

Happy Holidays everyone! It’s been a great year for A Taste of Koko. I’m the current food stylist/nutritionist at Food On the Table and food photographer at the University of Texas at Austin. I’ve also launched my online macaron shop at Macarons By Jane and my photography portfolio at Jane Ko My edible chocolate cups have reached a shocking 363K views under 6 months and will be featured in an online magazine in the coming year. And all of this wouldn’t have been possible without you. 
It’s been a pleasuring sharing my culinary adventures with you. Feel free to Facebook me and Tweet me.
The holidays wouldn’t be the same without macarons! These are vanilla bean macarons filled with a silky chocolate ganache. 
It took me forever to figure out how to adorn the syrofoam with the macarons. I started off with chocolate ganache because I wanted the centerpiece to be completely edible. But the macarons just slipped off so I tried superglue and Elmer’s. Still no luck. The winning solution was.. toothpicks! 
Macaron Christmas Trees are a stunning centerpiece for the holidays and it’s edible! Try these peppermint macarons for a festival taste!

Where are you spending your holiday?
