These little sneak peeks were hastily taken with my phone after piping them and while I was waiting for them to form a skin :) Yes, I do know that exposure and lighting are all very off, but it usually happens when I’m all impatient to snap a photo before I forget.¬†
The tiny black dots are vanilla bean seeds. It’s my first time using gel food coloring and I overestimated how much to use, resulting in a slightly garish pink :/
I’ve made a chocolate mint ganache for them, as well as a salted caramel buttercream. Friends and family who tried them say they’re getting better =D Am thinking of getting fresh strawberries tomorrow to try the strawberry buttercream for some of the shells. Whee :)
