Hi-5 Giant Macaron Cake Topper

Sometimes when friends are on a tight budget for customized cakes and I have limited time or capacity, they order customized giant macaron cake toppers from me ;). These cake toppers go on top of cheap cakes that are easily available from neighbourhood bakeries. Here's a Hi-5 giant macaron cake topper that I made for Susanne's elder daughter who is a Hi-5 fan in early August. Sorry for the super late post!


This cake topper is about 11-12cm big.

I used the reduced sugar recipe for the macaron shells here. Both regular and reduced sugar recipes can be found here. You may refer to my Creative Baking: Macarons book for a systematic presentation of the basics and complex shaped macarons. You may refer to my video tutorials for macaron basics and piping of complex shapes on the blog too.

Here are the piped shells...


You may refer to this post for tips on how to bake large macaron shells.


Freshly baked!

The details are added on with royal icing.


Checkout the awesome feet!


I filled the macaron with lemon white chocolate ganache.
