1

Drawing the basis

Macaroon’s basis is a circle. The figure is slightly stretched, but don’t make it oval. You can draw with the help of your compass or you can circle a round object.

Additional figures

The next step is the adding of two elongated ovals, we’ll form the biscuits from them then. The ovals are at the top and at the bottom of the circle and they almost completely cover it. Leave a little space in the center to fit the layers of cream.

Erase the figures' parts

There is a cream between the biscuits. It’s thick and doesn’t leak. But the filling is laid with the uneven layer. Draw the cream with the help of the wavy lines.

Draw the layers

Don’t connect parts of the cream, the center should separate them, the macaroon looks like a layer cake for this reason.

Central layer of the cream

The center is uneven as the rest of the cream’s layers. Correct the horizontal lines and make them uneven, correct them with the help of the eraser, if needed.

Correcting the upper part

Make the upper part more voluminous, because macaroon slightly grows while it’s being baked. It’s easy to do – draw the oval in the cake’s center, draw two lines to the left and to the right down from it.

Erase the unnecessary details and make the macaroon look more rounded.
