Diana Just Loves Macarons,

well except the orange coloured ones, 

but there is nothing not to like about these,

these incredibly decorated macarons are lovingly hand painted by Anna Zhirova, all photographs Anna Zhirova/Instagram, 

Anna is a self-taught food artist from Russia who specializes in hand-painting macarons to create these unique edible works of art,

an architect by profession, Anna Zhirova came up with the idea of hand-painting macarons completely by accident, 

but she found the idea fascinating, She had been drawing for as long as she could remember,

 but the thought of decorating the tiny treats and creating designer macarons was very intriguing,

 Macarons traditionally come in an assortment of colours, but Anna Zhirova’s hand-painted ones have a white sugar glaze that makes the perfect background for her beautiful designs. From floral motifs to animals and other sweets, the Russian artist takes inspiration from everything in her life when deciding on her next design,

Zhirova, whom some friends and family have nicknamed “Macaronessa”, because of her unique art form,

she uses various edible food dyes to decorate the macarons, and posts photos of her most beautiful creations on her social media, to look for more of her stunning artwork on these tasty treats, have a look here, or for online courses look here for more details, I have to say it, they really do look too good to eat!
