is a brand spankin’ new cookie shop in Covent Garden. My sister and I stopped in to check it out.
I go to Selfridge’s Food Hall fairly often to drool over everything. On the occasion I actually buy something I usually get a Lola’s cupcake. Recently, the food hall has been changed around (for the better I think). Where the baked goods used to be together in one case it is now 2 separate areas. One area is a Lola’s cupcake bar with a few small tables. It looks very cute.

I love macarons. They are all the rage right now but they are also very hard to make and it’s fun to find a new challenge and master it. They also taste really good! I’ve read about what other people are guessing the next big trend will be. I haven’t seen anything really exciting just yet. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’s going to be elaborate three layer cakes or something crazy like one dessert stuffed into another dessert (like the brookie
, my friend Sophia spotted this).
This is the third time I’ve made macaroons and I think this is my best result so far. My first attempt came out a little chewy (but not bad) and the second pretty good.
