Perfecting Patisserie: June 2015 Round Up

At the beginning of June, I told you all about the Perfecting Patisserie challenge and since the deadline has now passed, it’s time for a round up of all the entries. What a pretty collection they are, too!

To start us off, we have these delicious recipes from Patisserie Makes Perfect: Lemon Meringue Pie and a wonderful Fraisier which you may remember from GBBO not so long ago.

Next up is a recipe that is so amazingly seasonal. I may just have to rush out into the garden and pick the fruit to make one for myself! Here’s the Summer Berry Tart from Food Glorious Food.

Lili from Lili’s Cakes has been really busy this month and her creations always look so professional; like they’ve just been lifted from a Parisian window. Here are her Chocolate and Bergamot Charlotte RusseSwedish Princess Cake and Healthy Star Anise, Strawberry and Pistachio Tart.

I am in awe of The Dream Baker who has been experimenting with croissant dough. The step-by-step instructions and pictures of every stage really break down a complex recipe into something much less daunting. I think I’ll give it a go myself and turn it into some of my favourites; Almond Croissants.

So, here are the fabulous Brioche Croissants and Pain au Chocolat.

Rather than a recipe, this entry from Becks Bakes is a deep dive into her macaron-making adventures. It’s a fantastic read and those macarons are making me drool… Doing the Macaron’a.

Our penultimate entry comes from Beer and Baking and is a mouth-watering combination of flavours in these Strawberry and White Chocolate Mousse Tarts.

Finally, we have this striking Gooseberry Frangipane Tart from BakingQueen74. I haven’t tasted it but I bet the combo of sweet frangipane and sharp gooseberries is a delight!

So, that’s the round up for June! If you’ve been inspired to try your hand at some patisserie, the July Challenge is now live. Happy baking!
