This might be one of my favourite things I’ve made to date. Nothing says birthday like rainbow and this birthday cake is for my cousin Eloise. She doesn’t really like cake (what?! yes.) but really liked my raspberry macarons so I decided to go on that. I knew exactly how I wanted it to look and made multiple scrawly drawings trying to plan and get it perfect. Because I feel a birthday cake should have at least a small amount of cake, I made a vanilla sponge to act as a pedestal for the macarons. I lined the outside of the cake in two tiers of macarons and put the rest on this clear 4 tier stand. I chose to do a reverse rainbow and one of the hardest parts was deciding on what flavours to use. I went for pinky red raspberry, orange, yellow passionfruit, green mojito, blue coconut and purple blueberry. I loved mixing up all the fillings, especially the mojito using rum, lime and mint. It tastes exactly like the drink! I adored making this cake but it took a long time, in fact, ALL day. But after 12 hours and many batches of macarons later it came together. I couldn’t have done it without my sister who was such a massive help. I think she secretly enjoyed it, even if I did make her wash the spatula about 16 times. I’m really proud of how it turned out and I hope Eloise enjoys eating her mountain of macarons! Happy Birthday Eloise x
