It was beautiful outside today, which is rare in England sometimes, so I decided to take a walk around Central London and then on to Knightsbridge. I’ve read about the whoppie pies in a few magazines now and they look really pretty but there weren’t any comments about the taste.

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.

The Best Ever Orange Cake

I made a very large roast chicken and all the trimmings for Easter lunch today and this light fluffy orange cake was perfect for after.

I got this recipe from “McCall’s Cooking School” Cookbook. I bought it at a used book event at the mall in Pittsburgh. It’s not quite angel food cake as it has egg yolks but it is very light. Make sure to separate the egg whites and egg yolks into separate bowls.
