Macaron Tower & Birthday Cake!!!!!

My sister had a great idea for her birthday: a macaron tower on top of a cake.  The color scheme was yellow and grey. I picked out a gray base from Le Duc Gourmet Bakery. The flavor was mocha. 
The best thing about this bakery: the sweetness of the cake and their fondant! The fondant is SO soft and again the  perfect sweetness. Le Duc Gourmet Bakery placed a base so that I could put the tower without collapsing the cake. The size of the cake was 10 inches in diameter.

I ordered the macaron tower from Sweet. They only require a 24 hour notice. The size of the tower was about 1 foot. It held so well. However, it was hard to transport! I had to literally hold it (it's wrapped up so well) while driving with one hand.

The mini banner was created by Laurel of Go Against the Grain. It was gorgeous!! Here is her

The favors were 3 lemon macarons in mini chinese take out boxes. The yellow labels purchased from Paper Source Houston
