Lately, I have been baking but not blogging so here is a bit of a catch up.

 

 

AMAZING Lemon Macarons!  These were all gone by the next morning.  Once again made using Master the Macaron.  The lemon curd is delicious and makes a ton.  I am going to be pulling the extra lemon curd out of my freezer any day now to make some more lemon macarons.

 

 

 

Red Velvet Cupcakes. These were good, but not great.  While the frosting was amazing, the cake was nothing special.  I have yet to find a really good red velvet cake recipe.  Any suggestions?

 

 

 

 

Baking Samoas Cupcakes with a friend.  I was told these were one of the best cupcakes I had ever made.  They were a delicious and fun interpretation of the girl scout cookie.  My only warning is to be ready for one really sweet cupcake.  The recipe is from Sugar Duchess.  The only change I made was melting milk chocolate chips in the microwave instead of making a chocolate fudge sauce.  Simpler and just as delicious.

Have fun baking!
