Giant French Macaron Cake
A GIANT Version Of Your FAVE Delicate French Cookie - in CAKE!
Is it just me, or can you not go to a bakery, cafe or patisserie anymore without finding a sweet display of French macarons in every colour or flavour you can imagine!? But while these airy buttercream-filled almond cookies are on the rise in popularity, the humble coconut macaroon is losing its street cred!
So, to settle the debate once and for all, I’m caking the GIANT version of BOTH sweet treats! To make this Giant French Macaron cake, I whipped up some pink Vanilla cake, iced it all in pink Italian Meringue buttercream and covered them in pink fondant with a crinkly footing. I even sandwiched both layers between a SWEET chocolate cake “buttercream” layer so that the finished result really looked like a perfectly-crafted delicate macaron.
Which one do YOU prefer?
