A few weeks ago, I discovered Baking Mad with Eric Lanlard on 4od, and I ended up watching the whole series in an evening. I didn’t really do any baking at uni this semester but now I’m home with full access to a well equipped kitchen, I’ve felt a bit more inspired to try out some new recipes. I started with Lemon Meringue Cupcakes.
They certainly tasted good, and I was quite proud of myself for making lemon curd from scratch (I had no idea it was so easy!) but I definitely need to practice… My piping wasn’t great, and I used an electric grill in lieu of a blowtorch, which was both unsuccessful and ended up burning half the cupcakes. I was also hoping that the dollop of lemon curd in the middle would be like a doughnut, but it really wasn’t :/
In other news, there’ll be a little bloggle about Paris coming in the next few days…
