Perfecting Patisserie February 2016 + January Roundup

Perfecting Patisserie February 2016 + January Roundup

Where did January go?! Blink and you missed it. Welcome to the February edition of the Perfecting Patisserie blogging challenge. With the healthy intentions of January it may have been tricky to find a suitable patisserie recipe to send in, so I was very pleased to see the lovely entries that linked up this month.


Perfecting Patisserie January Roundup

These Russian Caravan cupcakes are infused with the flavours of the tea in both the cakes and the frosting. How delicious!

Lili made a two different tarts – passionfruit and raspberry and a lighter St Clement’s and raspberry version. Both have such a high glaze and are beautiful in their own right, and I can’t decide between the individual tarts or the large tart!


These easy cinnamon swirls are perfect for a tasty treat when you don’t have time to make your own pastry.


Angela’s vegan chocolate orange macarons, made with aquafaba or chickpea water, show that you macaron feet are possible even with the vegan version! I am amazed by what is possible here.

Laura’s marmalade, ginger and blood orange loaf cake is the perfect recipe for those gorgeous blood oranges which you might be able to get your hands on at this time of year.


I entered my almond petit fours.

Lovely variety of bakes in the January roundup. I’m inspired by the blood orange cake and also very intrigued by the vegan macarons…
