Show and Tell Monday ~ 1:12 Scale Pink Macaron Tower

I first received an equiry last year if I make macaron tower in dollhouse 1:12 scale. At that time, I made macarons, but have never attempted making a tower yet. Early this year, I experimented and tried a few times, but I was not happy with the results. Personally this was definitely more challenging than the profiteroles tower. There weren't a lot of real macaron tower photographs that I could use as reference, so I had to depend on my imagination a lot. The next challenge was keeping the consistency of colours, deciding what colours I wanted. For a start, I made more than 10 different shades of a whole variety of colours, and each shade of 30 pieces at least. Then, I selected the colours that would look good together. This was the end result.

A Pink Macaron Tower. :) Made with 60 macarons, it measures about 3.6cm tall and 2.8cm wide.


  1. That is just amazingly crazy teeny tiny! You constantly amaze me!

  2. That is quite the engineering feat! It looks beautiful. Never having seen a macaroon tower, I'd have to say that's what I'd like it to look like! Glad to see you back,

    I hope you have been well. I just love the tower, wow! You just keep pushing the bar higher and higher and continue to outdo yourself. Take care and it's good to see you back.

  12. Whoo-Hoo!! Congratulations! You did it! You're right, macaroon towers are hard enough on a much larger scale... I can't imagine the work that went into this magnificent creation! I've seen the infamous macaroon tower from Laduree Bakery from Paris,and frankly, yours is as yummy looking as theirs is!! Simply darling!
