Mental Heath Awareness – Macaron Gift Boxes

This week Mental Health Awareness week (UK), especially important this year due to the effects of the Coronavirus Lockdown. At the weekend I made strawberry Macarons with some egg whites I had left over from another recipe. But with over 40 made I needed some help to eat them. I decided to make up some Macaron gift boxes using the new in colours and the Flowers for Every Season DSP, along with the Lovely You bundle for the label.

Macarons

I made these using my Kenwood Chef, wearing a mask and using tongs to handle and package them. When cooking for others outside the household, extra care is needed in this crises. Fortunately I have a house full of gadgets and dug out from the back of a drawer a heat sealing tool. This enabled me to wrap and seal 4 macarons in a ‘cut down’ zip lock bag.

The boxes were made with a plain base and a top with DSP panels and a Lovely You label “Just Because”.

Gift Cards

In each box I added a small matching gift card, which sat neatly on top of the macarons.

In total I made 9 of these boxes to present to my neighbours (leaving me with about 6 (of the more crushed) macarons to eat myself.
