Firstly, I would just like to say that this 52 Weeks challenge failed miserably. I dropped the macaroons. Yes, I am that stupid. I whipped the cream (by hand) and then dropped them when showing them off to my mum and dad. I managed to scoop them off the ground and assemble them for the photos..No one ate them after, don’t worry. Not everything in blog-life is hunky dory!
A Jubilee cup from days bygone.
Happy Jubilee Week!! This week will be full of baking from the Great British Baking Book and tea parties galore. It will be a lovely celebration for HRH.
Macaroons are something that I have always loved the look of. I dream of strolling along streets in Paris eating a macaroon from some expensive patisserie. Since they were in the British Baking Book, I felt it was only right to give them a shot and see how I like them. I have to be honest, I didn’t like them. I may have made them wrong but I don’t really like almonds and I didn’t like the texture of them. They are gorgeous but, I am afraid, they are not for me!
Whipping cream by hand was an intense work out..but I strangely loved it! I couldn’t believe the cream came together just from a little whisk and very little strength! So if you are looking for a summer work out, there you go.
I hope you all had a lovely holiday weekend (UK), I will be back tomorrow with more Jubilee-ness!x
