Making a macaron tower for Christmas seemed like a great idea at the time. How hard could it be?
Well… after googling Adriano Zumbo for inspiration, three attempts to make perfect macarons, a struggle to find a polystyrene cone and a few long days later… I finally got something to resemble a macaron Christmas tree! Hooray!
The macaron tree is themed red, green and white for the festive season with a gingerbread star on top! Overall there is about 120 macarons on the tower, each one held up with a trusty toothpick.
Take a peek at my first macaron tower below. Hell to make… heaven to eat!
