This is my second collaboration with Honey and Butter, and I was honoured to be invited back, not only to the store, but in to Honey and Butter's founder's personal passion project - her Creature Macaron Piping Guide!
Leanne's project was a massive guide on how to decorate macarons and make them in to your favourite characters from games, shows, and artists!
I drew Puglies to use as graphic assets throughout the guides just to give each page a little more love and poots!
We planned a launch date for the online release of the Puglie guide, and in store, Honey and Butter baked some Puglie macarons for that day only! The first 50 people in line at the store received goodie bags, and we had a giveaway a week prior for local customers in which the winner would go to the store to pick up on the day of!
Initially, I was supposed to fly down for a small pop up, but unfortunately due to COVID restrictions at the time, we had to save this occasion for a later date. Regardless, the outpouring of love at the event was amazing! I was so grateful to see the excitement of fans online and to see snaps of the line up in front of the store! And of course, Honey and Butter macarons are absolutely worth the line up hehe!
It was such an honour to be invited back for such a personal project, to do what I could to support the store, and create an experience for fans I haven't seen in such a long time 😭
I really hope I'll have another chance to partner up with Honey and Butter, and to create an event that'll bring more smiles to more fans :3 💖
