I have a question about the recipe "Classic French Macaron with Vanilla buttercream filling" from Dana'sBakery. I made too much batter and don't have enough room in the oven to make more macarons! Is there anyway to save the batter and pipe another day? tomorrow even?

Delaying piping the batter will likely result in egg whites eventually weeping and the meringue deflating. And unlike cream, egg whites can't be re-whipped. It's likely that the batter will be far too runny to pipe if you keep it overnight (or even a few hours).
