Perfecting Patisserie May 2016 and April Roundup

Perfecting Patisserie May 2016 and April Roundup

Welcome to Perfecting Patisserie May! Sorry for the delay in getting this ready, time seems to be whizzing by again. Last month we had 8 delicious entries into the challenge and you will find them all below. I am so grateful to all of you who have taken part and sent your delicious bakes over to the challenge!

After the roundup you’ll also find the new challenge for May below. If you are a blogger and have blogged a patisserie-inspired recipe this month, do join in!

Have you been inspired by Bake Off Crème de la Crème? I watched last night and am now spurred on to make croissants, pastries and brioche filled with crème parisienne (but perhaps not a chocolate chest of drawers!).

Choclette made these delicious rhubarb friands with white chocolate; I would love a few of these especially with rhubarb being in season.

Anca sent in her matcha and cocoa fruit loaf, the three plaited strands look so colourful and bright.

From Baked to Imperfection comes lemon meringue pies in both large and mini sizes, I would love to try them all!

Another lemon meringue pie entry, what a coincidence, this one from Kat The Baking Explorer. The blowtorch effect on the meringue looks so good!


Lili made a wonderful masala chai, raspberry and pistachio layer cake, with a delicious combination of flavours, colours and textures.


Janice’s bakewell pudding is very like a frangipane tart, and a traditional dessert we would all like to devour!

Caroline made coconut dacquoise with chocolate ganache filling. I would gladly eat several of these!


I made macarons with chocolate rose ganache.

If you have a baking blog and might like to take part, remember I do a full roundup each month, as well as commenting on and pinning each entry, and RTing on Twitter. From this month on I will also Stumble, Yum and Flip each entry too!

Thank you for including my fruit loaf. I’m inspired by Creme de la Creme, but I don’t have time to do lots of things these days.

[…] I’m submitting this recipe to the Perfecting Patisserie challenge hosted by Baking Queen 74. […]

I’m incredibly inspired by Creme de la Creme but seem to lack the time to make any of it!!! Impressed by the coconut dacquoise above which presumably someone made after seeing the show last week? Unless it’s a wild coincidence!


Ooh lovely round-up with some interesting bakes and flavours. I’ve really been enjoying creme de la creme, but CT’s not so keen, so I haven’t caught up with all of the episodes yet. Thanks Lucy.

Wow! That’s such a delicious-looking roundup. Great bakes I must visit asap! I’m curious about the very attractive three-plaited strands loaf too. Thanks for the mention Lucy and look forward to seeing more yummy stuff. 🙂
