Craftsy member Sweet Sisters created this adorable Hat Box Cake filled with French macarons in the on-line class Simply Modern Cake Design with Jessica Harris. She used the waxed paper–transfer method to adhere the beautiful scalloped to the cake. Then, she topped the cake with a colorful display of fresh macarons peeking out of the hat box lid.
