I have seen a few pictures of macaron cakes around lately, mainly in pastel colours for weddings. Some of them are stunninng and certainly make an unusual and modern alternative for a wedding. Edd Kimber made one for the Great British Wedding Cake bake off in the Spring, using orange and gold macarons. My first attempt at a macaron cake was for a 30th birthday party. I baked a very rich chocolate cake using a favourite recipe from the BBC’s Good Food web site, and decorated it with pretty pink macarons filled with raspberry buttercream.
