Super-Sized French Pastries

The Macaron Cake Impresses with its Size and Delicate Construction

— June 4, 2012 — Lifestyle
Anyone who has experienced the irresistible charms of a delicate french macaron will be ecstatic at the sight of this divine Macaron Cake. Crafted by the baking blogger Heather Baird, from the earth-shatteringly gorgeous blog 'Sprinkle Bakes,' this colossal french pastry is like some wonderful dream. Baird adapted the recipe from the celebrated dessert book 'Ladurée Sucré,' and the results are enough to make foodies everywhere giddy.

This Macaron Cake is a marvel of baking science. Crafting a macaron shell, let alone a 10-inch one, is difficult to say the least. But Baird pulls this feat of sugar engineering off without a hitch and adds raspberries, strawberries and perfectly piped turrets of freshly whipped cream to the party. A beautiful and delicate construction, this Macaron Cake is as stunning to look at as it is to eat.

The perfect sweet ending to a ladies' tea or wedding shower, this intriguing treat will have your guests swooning.
