Back in 2009 when I first visited Paris to attend a summer photography course, I started adoring Laduree. Every time I passed by Laduree, I got amazed by their window displays, especially their classy-looking macaron towers. That was the reason why I decided to attend the baking class in Paris last year. The best part was, my macaron teacher used to work for Laduree, and she shared a lot of tips on how she made the towers while she was with Laduree!
So, this month I started taking orders for my macaron towers... yeah, inspired by Laduree, to be honest ;)
My towers come in three sizes - small, medium and large. I have already received a few orders, spanning from now till early next year. That really got me all excited to make the towers!
Last weekend, I made a medium-sized, 17-inche tall macaron tower that comes complete with a 9-inch wide red velvet cake as its base. I used about 70 pieces of macarons in three different flavors - red (chocolate + strawberry), white (butterscotch) and white with mini heart-shaped sugar topping (lychee).
For the next assignment, I'm to deliver a medium size rainbow macaron tower with "princess" as its theme, for a birthday party. This one will come with a customized two-tier dummy cake. I'm so looking forward to it!
