A classic wedding cake will always be on the menu. They’re forever timeless and truly beautiful. But if you’re looking for something a little different, a macaron wedding cake may be the perfect fit.
“Macaron towers and macaron wedding cakes look beautiful as part of an elegant and sophisticated wedding cake table display,” says Suzanne Brady, owner of Cove Cake Design. “By incorporating one or two towers of different heights, perhaps alongside a small cake or some additional sweet treats, the display looks aesthetically interesting and, most importantly, inviting.”

Think a macaron wedding cake wouldn’t work with your aesthetic? Think again. These bite-sized desserts can be displayed in a huge variety of ways, all while offering different flavors and even handpainted designs. Brady suggests designing a macaron wedding cake to compliment your wedding’s aesthetic by matching your color palette. Or, incorporate fresh blooms to match the rest of your wedding flowers.
But what’s the best way to plan for this type of treat? “If you are serving your macaron tower alongside other items I would suggest one macaron per guest,” says Brady. But if you’re only planning on a standalone tower to make a statement? Brady suggests two macarons per guest.
