The final part in this series is a tutorial about making the little cakes and macaron that were on the table.
(all gorgeous photos by Little Buttons Photography and all bad photos by me!)
Start by mixing your fondant with a hardening agent and roll your white into a high ball (this ball needs to have the height you require for your cake tiers)
Use your circle cutters to cut out the tiers and then use a knife to trim the ends (if necessary)
Attach the tiers together with some water or edible glue
Dab some water around the bottom of the tiers and stick some cachous balls around
Finish with a decoration on the top of the cake. You can obviously decorate the cake however you like, with whatever edible decorations you have on hand.
For the second cake, cut out 1 pink and 2 yellow circles
Stick them together and smooth out the top
Cut out a fluted circle of white (I used a pastry/scone cutter) – make sure this circle is larger than the cake circles.
Stick the white circle over the top of your cake and cut out a slice
Decorate the cake anyway you like. I have simply rolled out tiny pink circles with even smaller red circles and stuck them on the top.
For the macarons – simply cut out 3 circles (2 of one colour and 1 of a contrasting colour) and stick together!
