White Chocolate With Hard Macron Rainbow Soirette Cake
White chocolate with heard Macaron rainbow Soirette cake, the pretty layered appearance of the luscious white-colored macaroni is echoed by the bright red and pink roses on its top and bottom. This cake is a great cake to show off with a family that enjoys cakes, especially ones that look so much like something that would be served at a tea party.
With a flatter shape, like a long rectangle, you’ll need to cut a cake pan of the correct size to fit the macaron. Depending on your decorating style, this will depend on whether you choose bolder colors for the borders or choose more subtle tones like the white in the macro itself.
When the border is complete, add some rose petals, before decorating the macaron with the macaron’s ribbon as you would any other cake. It is important to check this often; overdoing the borders can make the macro dry out and look less authentic. When using the macro, this ribbon can also be used to tie the layers together, but it does not actually require glue, so it can be used anywhere the ribbon can be seen.
If you prefer to serve your macaron with the roses or shells, then make sure you can match the roses to the macaron. Depending on how you plan to arrange the macaron, you may decide to use different colors of white or pink and white shells. You can find patterns available to decorate macarons with roses and shells, so make sure you have some basic ideas for this. White chocolate with heard Macaron rainbow Soirette cake will look lovely when this is done with lots of white roses and bright pink shells.
Make sure the macaron has a nice base. If it is not covered in a layer of frosting, it can get slippery, which can ruin your efforts. You can top it with a white-colored fruit basket and choose a design that really sets off the macro.
You can also add cookies to the macro, if you wish. You may use dark chocolate chips, or simply chocolate chip cookies, or you may use just the plain unsweetened chocolate.
White chocolate with heard Macaron rainbow Soirette cake is certainly a fun way to begin decorating. Try to make your macaron as original as possible, which means you will be able to design unique designs.

Ingredients for Macarons
This is the easy part! You’ll only need a few ingredients to make these scrumptious French confections. You’ll probably have most of these on hand aside from almond flour.
- Super Fine Almond Flour: Repeat after me, almond flour is NOT almond meal. Make sure you use almond flour, which is much finer and made from blanched almonds (no skin) as compared to almond meal which is usually less fine and contains almond skin. You want almond flour (we love Bob’s Red Mill!) for smooth, bump free macarons!
- Powdered Sugar: Powdered sugar will both sweeten and thicken your macaron batter. You’ll also use powdered sugar in your desired filling.
- Granulated Sugar: You’ll need granulated sugar to help aerate and whip up your egg whites into stiff peaks.
- Egg Whites: Some people swear by “aged egg whites”, but we don’t mind our egg whites youthful. I jest, but we don’t find that it makes a difference with the swiss meringue technique! Just make sure you measure out the egg whites by weight and that absolutely no egg yolks make their way into the separated whites.
Food coloring (optional): If you want to color your macarons you’ll need just a few drops of food coloring.
What tools do you need to make macarons
From the stand mixer to the piping bag to the oven you bake them in, your tools really matter when it comes to macrons.
- Kitchen Scale
- Parchment Paper
- Cookie Sheet
- Piping bag
And obviously you’ll need a reliable oven to bake these sweet French cookies in. We absolutely love baking in our Café Appliances Range because it’s so darn reliable and easy to use. Macrons bake at a low temperature, so it’s super important that your oven temperature is accurate and consistent. We love our Café™ 30″ Double-Oven Range because it preheats in a flash, has consistent heat throughout so you don’t get any burnt corners and under baked centers, and has a bright oven light so you don’t need to open the door to peak at any cookies and risk them falling.
Step One: Measure out your ingredients.
Macarons don’t have to be hard, but you do have to be pretty precise in your preparation. We like to measure out all our ingredients using our kitchen scale before getting started to prevent messing up any measurements once you get started.
Step Two: Sift together the powdered sugar and almond flour three times to get out any clumps that would cause air bubbles or lumpy macarons.
*You can also pulse your powdered sugar and almond flour in a food processor, but as long as you sift it very well, there’s no need to break out another appliance.
Step Three: Whisk egg whites and roughly 3 tablespoons of the granulated sugar continuously until sugar melts completely and egg whites become white and frothy
One of my most favorite features of our Cafe Appliances Range is the 15K power boil burner which heats up quickly and evenly so you can make a double boiler in moments. We make our macarons with a swiss meringue, which means you’ll cook the egg whites a little before using them in your macaron batter. This will create a super stable macaron base that is much more forgiving.
Step Four: Transfer the egg whites to a stand mixer and slowly add the remaining granulated sugar, beating on high speed until stiff peaks form and the mixture is glossy. If using food coloring add here as well!
You’ll know it’s done when the mixture is not longer grainy when you rub it between your fingers.
Step Five: Add the sifted powdered sugar and almond flour to the egg whites. Turn the mixer to medium speed and whisk for 5 seconds.
Step Six: Using a rubber spatula, scrape down the bowl and gently fold the batter from the outside of the bowl and gently twisting it into the center in a circle-like manner.
Do this until the batter is a lava like consistency and you can make a figure 8 with the batter without it breaking.
Step Seven: Transfer the batter to a pastry bag fit with a ½ inch tip. Pipe the macarons out into a shape of a rainbow on parchment paper.
Step Eight: Bake the macarons at 300°F for 13 to 15 minutes (depending on the size).
Step Nine: Allow the macarons to cool completely before transferring to a cooling rack. Step Ten: While the macarons cool, make the filling. Combine all the filling ingredients together in a bowl and beat until fluffy and creamy.
