Lemon and Blueberry Ruffle Macaron Cake

My lovely friend Katie, who writes the fabulous Feeding Boys and a Firefighter blog, turned 40 a few weeks ago and I was flattered to be asked to make her birthday cake. Being the foodie that she is Katie had a few ideas and many millions of pictures pinned to a Pinterest board for inspiration! In the end she settled on a lemon and blueberry cake, decorated with ruffle piped buttercream in her favourite aqua blue colour, and finished off with some yellow and aqua macarons to match. 

Rather than making a tiered cake I made three separate cakes, each displayed on its own glass stand, with some extra macarons in a bowl. This made for a pretty display to go with all the lovely pom poms and bunting that decorated the party room.


 

I wish I had a picture of Katie in her party dress to show you as well, as she looked stunning. Happy birthday Katie!
