Malted milk macarons

Its been a very wet, cold and windy August Bank Holiday. Luckily I was safe in my kitchen baking! These malted milk macarons that I made taste and smell divine – the perfect macarons to be making on a dull, wet day as they remind you of sofas, cups of tea and of course malted milk biscuits.
I have been making these macarons as I have had an enquiry from a bride-to-be who was interested in having a macaron tower for her wedding. She was looking for something a little bit different from a traditional wedding cake – and she loves macarons too! The colour theme for the wedding is cream and orange and I thought this colour and flavour would work well – so a sample will be heading her way very shortly.

Macarons and wedding dessert tables

There seems to be a growing trend in wedding dessert tables. Personally I think they are great idea – you can cater to everyone’s tastes and of course for anyone’s food allergies too.

Macarons make a great addition to any wedding dessert table and what’s more they are right ‘on trend’ too. Macarons provide mouthfuls of sheer delight – and once more they are gluten free as well. They can be made to match or compliment the wedding colours and with a wondrous array of flavours no one wedding will be the same.

A wedding dessert table can have the macarons displayed as a dramatic centre piece on a tower or they can be placed on individual cake stands (vintage or modern), on plates, on trays or even rustic logs.

I was recently approached by Becky and Sam who I had first meet at the Broughton Hall Wedding Festival. They had enquired about  some macarons for their wedding dessert table. They chose pistachio, lemon, blackberry & elderberry, rhubarb & custard macarons and displayed them in these large storage jars.  Thanks to Laura Calderwood for the fabulous photos.BeSaWed-91BeSaWed-320
