It has been a really busy weekend here at Medici Macarons HQ – 3 weddings in total!
On Friday Amanda and Dave got married at the National Trust’s Gibson Mill in Hardcastle Crags, Hebden Bridge. It’s a stunning venue deep in the heart of the woodland and set next to the river. It is quite a magical place.
Amanda wanted a macaron wedding cake that reflected the colours of the bunting that she had made to dress the ceremony room where she was to get married. But she also wanted macarons that were the flavours that she and her family loved. After some discussion I created a tower of hazelnut, pistachio, lemon curd and strawberry macarons. Both the hazelnut and pistachio macarons were made with 100% pure nut paste, the strawberry macarons had a secret centre of homemade strawberry jam and the lemon curd macarons had a secret centre of zesty homemade lemon curd.
The tower was beautifully dressed with flowers from Amanda’s own garden and were arranged by Amanda and her best friend. It was lovely to see these friends working together to make the floral base and crown for the macaron tower.
Amanda’s wedding was an intimate affair and the macaron wedding cake she chose held 100 macarons. Whatever the size of tower you would like I think this shows what a beautiful alternative a macaron tower can be to a traditional wedding cake.
Many thanks to Gary at Shutterspot Photography for the lovely images.
