Banoffee Macarons

I’ve been on a bit of a blogging hiatus and posting pretty randomly for the past few months. I’ve been working on lots of different things – some of which I’m super excited to share on here. Like these macarons, which might be my new fave flavour (I think I say that every time I make new ones). These were for my cousin’s birthday.

Anemone Cake

This cake was for my lovely neighbour Gabriele’s 40th birthday party this weekend. She had the most gorgeous garden party with a seriously cool marquee, delicious food and plenty of dancing. I knew a cake that was pretty and elegant would be her style and so I drew inspiration from this black and ivory Peggy Porschen cake for the design. It was my first time making anemones (which I still have trouble pronouncing – why?!) and they turned out really well. I love how the monochrome makes
