Reader comments have made it pretty clear that wedding cake still has a special place in most people’s hearts. As much as we love dessert bars and candy buffets and other wedding sweets, tiers of spongecake and frosting (not to mention other fillings!) still rule the roost. Nonetheless, I would definitely recommend macaron towers as an alternative to traditional wedding cakes. Sort of an alternative, anyway. Some of the towers, like the ones above, are simply French macarons displayed on a base of some sort, while others — the best sort, in my opinion — are macarons displayed on a tiered wedding cake. It’s the best of both worlds!
