Icing cakes is definitely not my strength. In fact, I'm terrible at it. One day I'm sure I'll dream up a project and I'll need to muster the courage to learn this art, but in the meantime here's me beating the system with some tricks I know! Cover it with macarons and flowers!
I put the macarons on first and spaced them evenly apart. Then added some flowers and some candy coated nuts in-between the macarons. Think colour and texture here! If you're using edible flowers from a speciality grocer, amazing! If not be sure to remind your guest that these are just decorations.
Now we fancy huh?
