Black Forest Gâteau with Russian Doll Macarons

This is a recent birthday cake I made for Nandita’s friend Shirin, the idea was to have a doll topper on a Black Forest Cake, but sugarpaste/fondant toppers melt when sitting on fresh cream, so I made the dolls in macarons instead!

Although it  was a large cake, Nandita told me it was gone in minutes 😀

I think the Russian Doll macarons look very cute here, a bit like Little Red Riding Hood in the Black Forest 😛

The macarons were made by the same method I use for the teddy bear macarons, I piped them free-handed with a plain nozzle joining two circles together, then draw the face and flowers with chocolate and royal icing.
