When searching for ideas for a Christmas dessert, we couldn't help but drool over French macaron tower or topiary creations (or pièce montée macaron in French) we kept seeing.
We became so inspired and decided to invent our own macaron masterpiece - our French Macaron Woodland Topiary recipe and tutorial for PREMIUM MEMBERS, only.
Topped with a festive bird and acorns, we created an eleven layer woodland themed macaron topiary. The macarons we baked were tinted a light peach and green color, however, you can tint your own homemade macarons to whichever color you'd like.
We filled these macarons with a white chocolate ganache, however, you can also create your own stiff filling that suits your tastes. Since macarons are made with almond flour, this dessert is also perfect for someone who may suffer from a gluten sensitivity.
