Perfecting Patisserie March 2016 + February Roundup

Perfecting Patisserie March 2016 + February Roundup

How on earth is it March already?! I hope you are enjoying seeing the signs of spring start to show up. I took a lovely sunny walk today in a park down a road flanked with beds full of daffodils and crocuses, and seeing those cheery flowers really is one of my favourite things about spring.

There were nine stunning entries into last month’s Perfecting Patisserie challenge, and you’ll be able to see them all below and click on the links to find out the recipes. It was so good to see such a  wide selection of entries, all devoted to their Valentine, or just perfect for sharing.

If you are a blogger, you can also enter the Perfecting Patisserie March challenge below! I look forward to seeing your beautiful creations.

From Lili’s Cakes, her first entry is a batch of marvellous matcha white chocolate chestnut millefeuilles! I would love to taste one of these.

Next, from Charlotte’s Lively Kitchen (I know the feeling!), comes her beautiful strawberry and champagne truffle tarts.

Angela from Only Crumbs Remain sent over her dozen apple roses, so pretty it would be a shame to eat them!

Emma from Supper in the Suburbs made these delicious 2-ingredient Nutella palmiers, so easy to make and so effective. I am glad you didn’t get sick of my reminders to link up Emma!


Lili’s third entry (and I really don’t know where you find the time for so many beautiful and complex recipes and blog posts Lili!) was a gorgeous healthier version of a fraisier (or strawberry cake).

Julie from Julie’s Family Kitchen has just started a patisserie course and linked up her macarons. I think they look awesome and would love to find an evening course in patisserie as well.

I don’t bake pretty things often, luckily I made some baked doughnuts for the cake sale recently. I hope they will qualify…

What a fantastic round up, I was going to have something savoury to eat but after seeing all those amazing treats I’m going to have something sweet! So much deliciousness in this post!


Some amazing entries here! You are doing an amazing job with this – I remember how much work CookBlogShare used to be for me.

I love the look of that cake – the strawberries around the side are so effective, so pretty!
