Easter Macarons… too hopping cute!

Easter Bunny Macarons

These Easter Macarons were inspired by the colourful packs of speckled eggs that hop onto our sweet shelves every Easter. I made them as an Easter gift in clear display boxes so they needed a decoration to match the occasion. Thanks to Fondant Solutions and their unique designs to match every occasion, I had this cute bunny face mould & miniature roses to create tiny sugar paste toppers for each macaron.

I made these bunnylicious macarons in perky pink, lime green and sunny yellow, filled them with Flavour Nation Cotton Candy, Apple & Passion Fruit buttercream & lightly speckled with edible gold paint. Each macaron hopped into the gift boxes with a few friends and then went out beautifully wrapped as an extra sweet gift for Easter.

These macarons captured the sweet spirit of Christmas 2019 in a whimsical way. I made Christmas Pudding macarons by adding chocolate chips into a warm brown macaron mixture. The filling is a smooth buttercream flavoured with @flavournation mixed berry. No Christmas pudding is complete without a sprig of holly so I added a sugar paste holly from @kadies_bakery_supplies to a tiny piece of white sugar paste ‘ icing ‘.

Tiny reindeer faces from @kadies_bakery_supplies and miniature white beads completed the Christmas red macarons for my Christmas gift boxes.

The boxes wrapped with a sugar cane and Christmas ribbon made the perfect …. naughty …. but oh so nice Christmas present!

Rose Cake Macaron Tower – Helen’s 50th

Rose Cake Macaron Tower

A walk through Helen’s garden is a gift of tranquility, beauty, love and floral passion. Helen’s gentle touch and knowledge can be seen in every living space of her garden and home. It was with this in mind that I designed her 50th Birthday Rose Cake Macaron Tower. The brief was roses and pale pastel colours with macarons inspired by a family visit to the Laduree shop in Paris.

I made these roses from flower paste, carefully dusted in pastel shades of yellow, pink and peach. The pastel macarons completed the tower cake: soft yellow (lemon flavoured), perfect rose (rose water flavoured), pastel green (made with a combination of pistachio and almond flour), pretty orange (orange blossom) and pale brown (chocolate flavoured with cocoa).

Beautifully displayed in Helen’s home, this cake showcased her personality and it was a pleasure to create this cake and then to share in such a beautifully planned 50th celebration.

Thank you for your kind words Helen:

” Thank you so much for the most incredible cake and macarons. You are a genius. It was perfect… the subtle delicate flavours, the subtle colours, everything.”
