In my eyes, this year has gone by so fast but has been such a journey at the same time (mostly school-related mind you). I feel that I would have liked to have done more projects this year, but I guess that’s something that you can look forward to in the upcoming year! Here is a recap on some of my favorite posts and projects from this past year:
Starting off with The Surprise Puck Cake (check it out here). To be honest, I’m still so proud of this cake, mostly because it was for a special occasion that was shared with many of C’s close friends. The whole event took a few weeks of secret planning and brainstorming, but I loved every minute of it.
High tea at the grandparents place.
Pastries, sandwiches, quiche, and scones.
Remember my weak-shelled green tea macarons?
Wasn’t very happy with those, so had to try again.
Love green tea.
These are green tea macarons with green tea white chocolate ganache filling.
Sounds decadent eh?
Vanilla Bean. Classic.
A little really goes a long way.
Nutella and chocolate.
Best flavor combination ever.
Like a melt-in-your mouth Ferrero Rocher sandwich.
This was my first attempt at making macs in a really long time… was probably due to the utter fear that they just wouldn’t turn out.
But they turned out totally fine, so I’m happy.
More lemons you ask?? Yes! I’ve been trying to use up our lemons, since I bought about 8 of them. Plus they taste so good.
The best way I can describe a macaron would be something similar to an oreo, but more decadent. A filling of choice sandwiched between two meringue based cookies, characterized by a smooth shell top + frilly bottom edge (aka feet or foot), yielding a cookie that is crisp on the outside, but soft/chewy on the inside.
