Cascading macaron cake

Wednesday, 25 May 2011

Here’s a little something I have been working on for the past couple of nights for a photoshoot for Cosmo Bride. (Excuse the bumps and bruises ont the cake – this is a pic taken post-photoshoot so it has been handled by a couple of people.) I was inspired by a cake featured on Elizabeth Anne Design blog and took it to the next level, making it a two-tiered present-box cake, with a rainbow of macarons exploding out of the top and cascading down the sides. Inside the cake is a simple vanilla sponge, covered in chocolate ganache and then rolled fondant. The macarons are filled with a salted-caramel filling. If I had more time, I would have designed individual fillings for each colour – I’m thinking rose, passionfruit-chocoalte, pistachio or apple, blueberry and lavender cream. Mmmm…

  • Bethan, this is gorgeous! I love making macarons and starting to like decorating cakes with macarons. More fun than inedible styrofoam tower.
