We’re celebrating Christmas with our Wilton friends all over the globe! In our Christmas Around the World Series, a guest contributor will share their favorite Christmas recipe and story with you. Today’s story comes from Nardy Montesdeoca in Spain.
Macarons…their origin is French, but for me they are always a reminder that Christmas is coming.
When I was little, my dad would travel to France for work in the month of December, and he always brought back a box of macarons. They tasted heavenly! I loved the taste but have to admit that what I liked most was the detailed packaging, with elegant pink tissue paper and box separators in gold colors! Each year, the box was nicer than the year before.
After so many years, life has put macarons back my way. To honor my memories, I created a beautiful tower of macarons, ideal for sharing on Christmas Eve. You can make your own macarons following this recipe from Wilton and fill them with buttercream. For this tower, I used ivory, teal and royal blue icing color. I used a 16 cm polystyrene cone covered in fondant and Dab-N-Hold Edible Adhesive to attach the macarons. You can also brush the macarons with Pearl Dust for added shimmer.
