He may be Baking Mad, But he definitely makes a good cake..
Eric Lanlard. A newly discovered favourite of mine.. he’s French and he makes cakes. What’s not too like? I’ve been watching his programme ‘Baking Mad’ recently and love the simplicity yet elegant look of his recipes. Something which an amateur jumps at the chance of trying out herself. And so, with my friend Sam’s birthday that evening and the Baking Mad website in front of me, I decided to make the impressive-looking Lemon Meringue Cupcakes for her present; Something which I’d seen him bake with ease on his Programme.
Lemon Meringue Cupcakes. Click Here for Recipe from the Baking Mad Website.
Okay, so they might look quite as Impressive as Mr Lanlard’s himself but for a first attempt I’m quite pleased with how they turned out. They tasted bloody good too…(What? I had to eat one to make it an even 4.. and too check that they weren’t poisonous of course). And yes, they were very easy to make! Wrapped in some tissue, and in a pretty pink cupcake box with gold ribbon, these made a lovely little present for my food-loving friend.
Off to meet a friend in a mo for a bit of a Baking/Cath and Kim Sesh so looking forward to seeing (and tasting) what we end up making…
