10-tier Macaron Tower (photograph courtesy of
Over a year ago, my friend (who I have know since Kindergarten!) asked me to make some sweets for her wedding. She and her fiance decided on Macarons and S'Mores - 200 of each. The big day was fast approaching and it was time to get to work.

This is the biggest Macaron Tower that
and I have made. Luckily, her sister was in town and able to help us. The 10-tier tower holds 200-250 macarons. I must admit that we have gotten pretty fast at macaron projects - 250+ macarons in 3.5 hours!
Macaron Tower from start to finish - batter, filling, sandwiching and assembling
Since work was a little crazy as I was preparing for my vacation, I was running short on time and enlisted the help of my Mom and Aunt to assist me in assembling the S'Mores. The S'Mores are made of homemade graham crackers, homemade marshmallows and dipped in a chocolate glaze. Half of them are sandwiched with peanut butter and sprinkled with chopped peanuts. I must admit that S'Mores can be a bit of a sticky mess, so in the future for large events, I would recommend

I was lucky enough not only to make some of the sweets, but I was also able to attend the beautiful wedding and got quite a lot of positive feedback! My friend Stella was absolutely gorgeous - thanks so much for having me be a part of your special day!
Congratulations to Stella & Greg!
