Macarons (honey and raspberry flavors) and red velvet cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream and fondant!
|Honey macaron shells, pre-baking (the shells are actually plain vanilla)|
|Raspberry macaron batter (but really just vanilla with red food color)|
|Almost done baking!|
So many shells! And a few cracks...
|Raspberry curd for the macarons - I ended up mixing some buttercream in to thicken it.|
|Raspberry and vanilla buttercreams|
|Cake frosting time!|
|Frosted, ready for fondant|
The finished product - a little lumpy, but I'm happy with my first attempt!
