Perfecting Patisserie December 2015 + November Roundup

Welcome to the December Perfecting Patisserie linky and blogging challenge! I can’t believe December is here and it is less than a month until Christmas Day. I have already started making festive recipes and am waiting for some snow to fall to make it feel […]

Chocolate Eclairs with Cranberry and Pistachio 

Chocolate Eclairs with Cranberry and Pistachio 

My latest bake and my entry this month into Perfecting Patisserie is my festive chocolate eclairs topped with cranberry and pistachio. Who says you can’t have an eclair at Christmas time! If you are looking for an alternative to a traditional Christmas pudding or a […]

Perfecting Patisserie Roundup – September 2015

Time for a mouth-watering roundup of the September entries into the Perfecting Patisserie linky and blogging challenge. With Great British Bakeoff still in full swing, many of the entries were inspired by bakes made on the show, such as frangipane tarts, cream horns, charlotte russe and […]

Marshmallow Fluff Chocolatines

Marshmallow Fluff Chocolatines

Pistachio, Cardamom and Rose Financiers

Pistachio, Cardamom and Rose Financiers

I haven’t baked much recently, so it was really good to get back in the kitchen and get baking. Pistachio and rose are some of my current favourite flavours, and I’ve also seen some lovely pistachio and rose creations on Instagram and Twitter recently. So […]

Lemon Curd Choux Buns

Lemon Curd Choux Buns

I am pleased to say I did it! I made my first choux buns. Before this I’d never made choux pastry before, although I am a big fan. For proof, see my Choux pastry creations board on Pinterest! But I managed it, though I am […]
