Perfecting Patisserie September 2015

I’m not quite sure where August went – blink and you’ve missed it! While I seem to have missed most of the month, we did spend a week in France (Poitou-Charentes) where I valiantly tried a few treats from the bakeries and patisseries in the name of research.

Thank you to everyone who joined in with the August Perfecting Patisserie challenge, once again there were some lovely entries linked up. I will be posting the roundup very soon so do look out for that.

With the return of Great British Bake Off, I’ve been baking along each week with one bake inspired by the show, and am particularly looking forward to Patisserie week when we get there. This week I even made a layered meringue and tried out some piping work, which I think shows I’ve become a bit more adventurous, no doubt through the inspiration of this challenge. I will try to keep up the good work ūüėČ

Layered Meringue Cake

I look forward to seeing your Patisserie inspired bakes this month, from gateaux Saint Honoré, feuilletés and millefeuilles, to fraisiers, charlottes or savarins!

As usual, the definition of p√Ętisserie for the challenge is very wide and also includes viennoiserie e.g. croissants, pastries and so on. Anything you might find in a P√Ętisserie cookbook is fine! There is no theme again for this month, so do link up any p√Ętisserie recipes you post in August using the linky below, and check the guidelines below.
