  2. Pipe meringue crab claws onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Start by piping a smaller curved bead shape. Next, pipe a larger curved bead shape directly to the top of it. Make sure they touch.
  3. Pipe a mirror image of your first claw, with two curved beads facing in the opposite direction.
  4. Bake meringues according to recipe.
  5. Prepare royal icing. Using tip 3, pipe two tall dots onto macaron cookie. Place candy eyes on top of icing dots so that the candy eyes sit upright.
  6. Once the meringues have completely cooled, carefully remove them from parchment. Attach the meringue claws to the macaron body with a small dab of royal icing.
