Ingredients

White chocolate ganache

Method

1.To make white chocolate ganache, bring cream to the boil in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat. Stir in chocolate.
2.Level top of cakes to remove icing. Secure one cake to a 30cm (12-inch) round cake board with a little ganache.
3.Spread cake top with cup of ganache; top with remaining cake. Spread top and side of cake with remaining ganache.
4.Using picture as a guide, decorate the cake all over with macaroons.

Macaroons are available from specialty bakery shops and select supermarkets. We used ganache to cover the cake as it will set and hold the macaroons in place. We bought 15 packets of macaroons to get the 30 pink, 6 brown, 19 vanilla and 18 light brown colours used in this cake. To save money, use all the colours in the packets to make a rainbow cake.
