Perfecting Pâtisserie June 2015

I’m sorry I’ve not been blogging very much lately, but I’ve had a lot going on in my personal life. I’m planning a post with some more detail on that in the coming weeks but for now I am easing myself back into blogging gently. Thank you to all of you who have shown me support.

Anyway, now that’s all over… Who’s up for a challenge?!

Ever since I started baking, I’ve always been fascinated by pâtisserie. I’ve seen on tv all those wonderful French pâtisseries with their delicious delights in the windows and have made a vow to get over to Paris sometime soon to try them for myself.

But making delights like these is far beyond the home baker like myself, right? WRONG! I’ve found that with a little bit of guidance, skill, know-how and patience anyone can make delicious pâtisserie in their own home. So that’s the aim of this challenge. I’ve teamed up with the lovely Lucy from BakingQueen74 to bring you this blogging link-up and give you a gentle push to explore outside your comfort zone and take a leap into this sweet sweet world.

Our definition of pâtisserie for the challenge is very wide and also includes viennoiserie e.g. croissants, pastries and so on. Anything you might find in a Pâtisserie cookbook is fine! There is no theme for this month, so do link up any pâtisserie recipes you post in June using the linky below, and check the guidelines below.
