Lifestyle blog Bakers Royale creatively fuses together two popular baking recipes by combining the flavors of a classic celebratory cake with the French macaron pastry. The end result is a birthday cake-flavored macaroon filled with a rich frosting centre pipped onto light almond cookies.
The Cake Batter Macarons are an ideal alternative recipe for a traditional birthday cake that is lighter, colorful and slightly more sophisticated. The smaller portions also make it much easier to enjoy without the feeling of indulgence of heaviness in the stomach. The macaroons are made from almond meal, sugar, egg white and cream of tartar with added sprinkles for color. Then two of the biscuits are sandwiched with a cake batter frosting made from boxed yellow cake, sugar and butter to replicate the sponge texture of the torte.
