Thank You Kane,

 

Actually I made this for my son's school auction.. I am not a pastry chef nor I am in the cake business..  I am 100% hobby only.  I do not sell my cakes.  I give them away to those who deserve them.

 

I like to do them when I feel like it.  I cannot see myself baking and decorating cakes at 2:00 in the morning or mid night.. or not having my week-end to myself..  :)smile.gif

Make the macarons as usual,   then get a cone shaped styrofoam,  at least 18 inches tall and 5 inches wide at the bottom (wider would be better).  Then attached the macaron on the styrofoam using toothpicks and a dab of melted white chocolate behind the macarons to help hold them.  The toothpick has to be in a slant angle going up so they won't slide down.  Just keep going around,  Start fro mthe bottom and work youway up.

This is so delicate and beautiful! The colors just POP! Wow! I'm so inspired because I LOVE lemon!

Quick Questions: What did you use to pipe the decals? Was it all free hand?
