We have a new Ask Emmaline question for you! And it’s a mistake that some brides make without even knowing it. Bride-to-be Mia is planning a summer wedding with a Parisian vibe (we can’t wait to share more about her theme!) and she wants to do a macaron wedding cake instead of a traditional wedding cake. But the problem comes with how to display it, and where to buy a macaron stand she can use for the tower. She writes,
Where to Buy a Macaron Stand
“Hi Emmaline, I’m planning to serve macarons instead of wedding cake at my Parisian themed wedding. I’ve seen macaron wedding towers but I’m wondering where to buy a macaron stand or tower that is nice enough to use for my wedding. Do you have any suggestions?”
Mia, great question! Before you gather up your macarons for your macaron wedding cake (or if you’re planning to give macaron wedding favors), decide how you want to display them. If they are macaron favors, you might want to read this. If you’re going to display macarons on a stand or tower, you will definitely need one of these macaron stands. Many brides who want to do a macaron “wedding cake” make the mistake of buying a tiered serving stand, like a dessert stand, but you need this specific type of macaron stand in order to display your macarons the way the pros do. This macaron stand is made of strong plastic and has curved edges, essential in keeping your macarons in place AND standing upright. When a guest takes a macaron on a proper macaron stand, the other macarons stay in place; however, when a guest takes a macaron on a tiered dessert plate, other macarons go right along with it. So, you ‘ll definitely want to buy a macaron stand or tower if you’re giving macarons instead of cake.
Here is an example of where to buy a macaron stand or tower for your wedding. Take a look at the photo on the right and you’ll see how it’s different than a regular cake stand. This macaron stand is from Boston BonBon:
Anyways, hope it helps! Great question and, as always, keep ’em coming!
Happy Planning + see you bright and early tomorrow morning to kick off a brand new week! We are so excited… there are some *serious* wedding giveaways planned this week. :)
