Alternative Wedding Cakes – Macarons

Other than the gorgeous visual displays that can be produced with macarons the best thing about these delicate little meringue based confections is how much you can customise them for your own wedding through colours, flavours and the display itself.

This post looks at some of the options for having a macaron wedding cake and also how to create your own wedding showpiece at home.
