Macarons (Tower)

23 Mar

I think I am in a big trouble. I made a promise to my younger sister that I will make for her macaron tower during her birthday. The problem is, I haven’t master the macaron skill yet. What more a tower?! Since her birthday is this coming Wednesday and she said I die-die must make a tower the size of my arm, it’s time to google!! *Panic attack!!

Firstly, I need styrofoam cone but where to get them? I doubt my mac shells will be soft and strong enough to be poke by toothpicks.

Here’s from Keikos Cake using the pasting (with chocolate ganache) method:

Always have a problem with ganache too. My ganache is too liquid-ish. heh.

For this I might need a special stand. *insert one big sigh*

I really don’t know how to make a tower but I already made a promise. What was I thinking?? Most probably I will have to make 2 batches of macs first. Since I only have red powder, my macs will be in different shade of pink. And I might have to create my own cone/stand. Serve me right!!
