Macaron Garden Fraisier Cake ($68) is a gorgeous pink-hued sweet treat made with soft layers of Genoese sponge mousseline cream and fresh strawberries. Decorating the cake is a circle of mini macarons, berries, and sugar daisies – almost like an edible bouquet. For something more personal, consider the Do-It-For-Your-Mama Cake ($48).
