It seems that there is never a more clear indication that we’re having good weather in the UK than an instagram shot of a #kopparberg in a #beergarden. Personally I find that making daisy chain cake bunting is also an excellent way to get in to the Spring time spirit, but that’s just me.
Emojis seem to be taking over the world lately; ‘The Emoji Movie‘ comes out in August, there is now a ‘Cakemoji‘ recipe book and even my Mum has started using Emojis in her texts (it’s like when she first learnt about text slang but worse!)
For Christmas one of my best friend’s Helen got me a copy of the Cakemoji recipe book which contains a number of different recipes, all featuring the Emoji in different forms. Some of these recipes include heart cookies, poop cupcakes and rainbow brownies. While flicking through I had the idea to finally make good use of some edible ink pens I bought a while ago by making a batch of emoji macarons. Could we call them emojarons? Maybe not.
So it was the Macmillan Cancer Support’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ cake sale at work the other week and I was asked if I wouldn’t mind contributing something for the occasion. I knew that I wanted to do something quite simple so I decided to go with a Lemon and Pistachio cake as anything lemon is usually a bit of a crowd pleaser.
The cake sale was a massive success and in total we managed to raise £240.80 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
It’s a super easy recipe and the bright yellow icing definitely cheered up a dull October day!
