Strawberry & Macaron Topped Brunch Cake Recipe #BrunchWeek

This  Strawberry & Macaron Topped Brunch Cake recipe is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #Brunchweek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

This week I made an amazing new Sunday brunch favorite, Strawberry & Macaron topped Brunch Cake. Brunch is my favorite meal of the week! You get to wear spring dresses and drink champagne!

I recently started a Boca Brunch Club with a friend where we try out different brunch spots in or near Boca Raton. I think once we exhaust all the brunch spots, we will start hosting brunch at our homes with recipe ideas from the brunch places.  

This Brunch Cake is super simple even for baking novices like me. You really only need to bake the cakes and make the icing. To make the cake look fancy for brunch, I added fresh strawberries and macarons on top. You can make your own macarons with this recipe or just buy a box of them like I did. Baking a cake and making macarons in one day can be a lot of work.
