This week I finally managed to make proper macaron thanks to the wonderful Cake Poppins and her macaron masterclass.
Millions of macaron
We made mountains of macaron (or macaroons whatever you prefer). Chocolate, hazelnut, peanut, lemon and raspberry combinations. They had perfect shiny shells with lift and actual feet! Beautiful and delicious. Unlike my previous Messy Macaroons!
Thank you Cake Poppins! I’m looking forward to attempting more macaroons asap!
Homemade Kiwi Curd and Shortbread Tart -Sunday Baking
Of course no Sugar Tourist would be worth their salt if they didn’t also attempt some baking themselves… I do A LOT of international baking over on http://aroundtheworldin80bakes.com
This kiwi Curd tart was inspired by a glut of kiwis and my new favourite programme ‘ You Gotta Eat Here!’ which looks at the best places to eat in Canada. I replaced lemons with kiwis and used basic Shortbread instead of pastry et voila! Quick Kiwi Tart.
