If you want a fancy cake that is super easy to make, try this Strawberry & Macaron topped Brunch Cake. It is extremely simple and delicious!

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 for this cake. Baking a cake and making macarons in one day can be a lot of work. I totally get it if you want to just buy them.

Here are some more awesome macaron recipes that you have to check out: Cookies and Cream Macarons, Earl Grey Macarons, Salted Caramel Macarons with Salted Caramel Filling, Strawberry Macarons, Lemon Macaron, and Raspberry Macaron Recipe + Raspberry Macaron Filing.
