The inspiration for it came from a small vintage trinket box which I spotted on yay retro and instantly fell in love with. The shape and the colour somehow asked to be filled with mini-macarons. Then I got a vision of a cake decorated with the macarons… and I came up with this pistachio sponge cake (green =pistachio – that’s how my brain works).
This is a lovely, moist cake, perfect for summer. I have filled it with Swiss meringue buttercream but whipped cream and lemon curd also work very well. Next time I think I will add fresh raspberries in the buttercream. Decorate with fresh raspberries or the macarons.
