French Macaron Tower

I've been itching to bake something new and French, so I was browsing the Internet and came across French Macaron (or Macaroon, however you like to spell it) Tower, which is typically made in France for weddings. See link here for more pics of amazing towers. Lucky for me, my friends bridal shower was coming up, so I thought I'd impress her with my own attempt at the tower (we share the same passion for tasty French Macarons).

For my first shot at it, I think it came out pretty well. I can only imagine what it will look like with more practice! I attempted an ombre look with the color lavendar. The theme of the event. A bit tricky but pretty darn tasty.

Step 1: Line a Styrofoam cone with wrapping paper
Step 2: Add toothpicks and work your way up the tower.

The flavor of the cookie is Lavender (made with fresh lavender) and the cream is a Rose Meringue Buttercream.

I hope this creation inspires you to bake something tricky as well! If anything, it's a lot of fun and you get to eat cookies all day. :)
