The Step-by-step guide to make Macaron Cake

1. Shells of lemon Macaron Cake

Step 1: Line 2 baking sheets covered in silpat mats or parchment paper. Almond flour and powdered sugar should be combined and set aside after sifting.

Step 2: To produce a double boiler for the Swiss meringue, heat some water in a small pot on the stove. In the bowl of a stand mixer set over a double boiler, whisk the egg whites and granulated sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved and the egg whites are foamy (approximately 120F or 49C).

Step 3: After taking the mixture off the heat, beat the egg whites and sugar with the whisk attachment for about two minutes, or until firm peaks begin to form. Food coloring, vanilla extract, and lemon extract should all be added at this point and should all be thoroughly combined.

Step 4: Fold the dry ingredients into the meringue using a sturdy spatula. It can take some time, but keep folding and pressing the batter against the bowl wall until it can ribbon off and create an entire figure ‘8’ without breaking. Avoid over-mixing.

Step 5: For each lined cookie sheet, pipe two circles measuring 4-5 inches in diameter using a piping bag with a medium circle tip. Use a toothpick to remove any air bubbles that are visible and stubbornly cling to the batter by tapping the tray on the counter several times.

Step 6: As the oven heats to 300F (149C) traditional (no fan), let the cookies cool on the baking pan. For about 25 minutes, bake one tray at a time in the center of the oven. The color of the Macaron Cake will slightly darken.

Step 7: Before picking them up, let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet after removing them from the oven.

2. Lemon Curd

Step 1: Over medium-low heat, combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan. Whisk constantly for about 5 minutes, or until the mixture thickens. A spoon should be able to be coated in the curd’s thickness.

Step 2: Press the curd through a sieve into another bowl or jar while it’s still hot, cover it, and let it cool completely to room temperature. Refrigerate leftovers in a covered container.

3. Buttercream Frosting

Step 1: Cream cheese, butter, and vanilla should be thoroughly blended in a big basin using an electric mixer.

Step 2: When the sugar is added, begin by mixing it in gently until it is mostly incorporated. Then, increase the speed to high and beat for two to three minutes, or until the sugar is completely dissolved.

4. Assembly

Step 1: Place the first Macaron Cake shell on a flat surface with the downward facing side up. Put a layer of cream cheese frosting on top of the macaron shell using a pastry bag and star tip. Next, spread some lemon curd over the icing. Follow the same procedure with the remaining layers, and then chill for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Step 2: The ideal way to serve Macaron Cake is barely cooled. About 30 to 60 minutes prior to serving, take the Macaron Cake out of the fridge to allow the cream cheese icing to soften.

The refrigerator is the best place to keep macarons and Macaron Cake, especially if they include a topping like cream cheese icing.
