These Macarons Are Mini Masterpieces
If you didn't know macaron art was a thing, you haven't seen Meghan Rosko's tiny treats. The 22-year-old wields a colorful icing palate and has a very steady hand, embellishing her exquisite French sandwich cookies with elaborate piping and painted designs. For those who don't know, the macron is a gluten-free cookie made with almond meal. Most of us didn't know it could also be the vehicle for artistic expression above and beyond the choice of flavoring and filling.
Like some of our other favorite food artists, food wasn't Rosko's initial calling. She was more of a crafter. In 2014, baking became a healing hobby after her brother passed away in a car accident. Then she decided to experiment with decorating sugar cookies: "I did a simple set of sugar cookies for a wedding and then started taking orders from family and friends." She started sharing her pieces on social media (@nutmegandhoneybee). "The name Nutmeg & Honeybee was inspired by my brother, Brendan," says Rosko. "I used to call him 'B' as a nickname and I chose 'nutmeg' to represent my name, 'Meg.'"
