    • What is a Macaron Tower, and Why Make it out of Clay?
      Do you know about the “macaron tower”, a current staple of wedding ceremonies? Macarons are world-popular sweets made from hardened merengue, and a macaron tower is made by stacking these vertically. Their colorful, cute look makes them amazingly photogenic wedding props, but making them out of genuine merengue brings the concerns of cost and storage. 
      A frequent alternative is the “clay macaron tower”. Using durable and light resin clay like in this Tokyo crafts class, anybody can make a beautiful macaron tower at a much lower cost!
    • The Clay Crafts Class Begins! Making your Clay Macaron Tower
      After some instructions, you will begin making your clay macaron tower! Using a soft resin clay, you’ll make a colorful array of macarons and stick them one-by-one to a pre-made base. The macarons are made easily using specialized molds, so children and adults can enjoy this experience together! Will you go for a vibrant clay macaron tower with many different-colored clays, or a minimalistic look with fewer colors? It’s all up to you!
    • End of the Clay Crafts Class: Your Hand-Made Clay Macaron Tower is Complete!
      Once all faces of the tower are covered with macarons, it’s time to decorate it with ribbons and clay! The design will be a one-and-only reflection of your aesthetics! The macarons come out bite-sized and colorful, making it tempting to throw one in your mouth. Unlike a real macaron tower, a clay one can continue to serve as a decoration after the party or wedding it was made for. As a piece of your interior, they’ll become a lasting memory of a special day!
