Hello,  I made this for my Christmas party… I ended up making my very own macaron pyramid since the ones sold are like $100.00 + 29.00 shipping from France… I also made macarons and filled them with coconut and ginger ganache:Hello, [color=green][/color]

Speaking of towers, prettycake, how do you “affix” the macarons to towers like the one in this post:  http://www.realbakingwithrose.com/index_ee.php/forums/viewthread/4721/

Is it a foam core with little toothpicks sticking out or something like that?

Thanks!!!!

Hi, I used toothpick. I position the toothpicks on the styrofoam cone then very carefully poked a small hole then attached the macaroons. I had to wrap the entire tower in plastic wrap so they won’t fall off during transport. Always start from the bottom going up. That way they will sit on top of the first row.

Hello prettycake,

Did you construct the styrofoam pyramid yourself? I can’t find pyramid…only cones, balls and boxes :(

Hi Tsubame, the one I used here I had to make it using that poster board used for school projects and presentations because the pyramids used for macaroons are only sold in France. If they sell them here, it is extremely expensive. What I did was to cut four triangles, wrapped them separately in gold foil made by wiltons then attached them using packaging tape to form a pyramid.  For the part that holds the macaron, it is just ordinary white printing paper that I cut in strips then glued them on to the pyramid. If the tape shows where the triangles are connected, just decorated that part w/ ribbons.
