Lemon Macarons with Swiss Meringue Buttercream

After finally mastering the macaron after plenty (and i mean PLENTY) of tries and fails, I have FINALLY been able to actually test new flavours and fillings. After making my Passionfruit Macarons which turned out so delicious, I wanted to make another flavour which was just as tasty.

Thats where these babies come in. When I first thought of doing a lemon macaron, I wanted to have a lemon macaron shell and a lemon filling.

Marble Cake

Marble cake is my favourite! And especially good when you love both chocolate and vanilla cakes and you find it difficult to choose which one to have!! This cake is very simple, with no real icing on top just a drizzle of both white and milk chocolate. You can cut this cake in half and fill/cover with a chocolate buttercream if you like, like this recipe by Sallysbakingaddiction!

Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow Cupcakes

Happy St. Patricks Day! A day I personally do not celebrate, but always seem to end up in a pub (that’s normal, right?). This year though I opted for a less alcoholic way to celebrate by creating some St. Paddy’s Day chocolate cupcakes!
