Elegant Wedding Macarons

I wanted to make something special for our one year anniversary and thought that a mini macaron wedding cake would be really cute. I was so excited when I came up with the idea. I couldn't wait to make it and take photos of it! :) The sugar pearls and pearl dust make the macarons look very elegant. I love it so much! 

The top macaron is only about 1 inch in diameter and the bottom is 2.5 inches so this little cake is tiny! I filled them with an orange Grand Marnier ganache since our wedding cake was also an orange Grand Marnier cake. It's so cute that I couldn't eat it yet. It's still sitting in my freezer right now lol. Good thing I made extra macarons without the pearls so that James and I can enjoy them :)

Btw, the tiny rose is made out of clay. I bought a small bouquet of them years ago at a flower show. Maybe one day I can try to make sugar flowers!
