Macaron Testing II [Lime]: Dreaming of Sunnier Days


Well, we had one day of glorious sun and now it’s back to the wind and the rain. But not before I had a chance to make some pretty tea party macarons and take advantage of yesterday’s perfect afternoon light.

Last Friday I went to the Cake International 2012 exhibition at the Excel Centre in London. I bought bottles of orange, blackcurrant and lime flavouring and decided to try out the lime one for my next macaron test.

I simply added a few drops to plain buttercream and was left with a lovely citrusy, fragrant lime cream filling :)

These macarons went off to Rose Apple Bakery’s first tea party catering event, but of course not before I had enjoyed a couple of them with a cup of tea in the short-lived sunshine. 

Stay tuned for photos from the tea party!
