This delightful cake gets its name and good looks from the colorful crisp meringue cookies known as macarons. The cake is easy to make thanks to some tasty shortcuts. The layers come from a white cake mix that's spiffed up with fresh lemon zest. They're filled with strawberry jam and covered in simple cream cheese frosting that holds store-bought macarons in place, so all you have to do is pop them on. Pretty pink and yellow macarons echo the lemon and strawberry flavors in the cake, but you can choose cookies to go with the color theme of your event, such as a bridal or baby shower. With a cake this cute, any occasion will feel like a party.
