Eclairs by Passiontree Velvet

Eclairs by Passiontree Velvet.jpg

We were invited to be part of the SmoothFM Festival of Chocolate again this year and we created a whole new menu of eclairs exclusively for this event. It was an amazing success and our customers were extremely happy which makes us happy! The eclairs were really pleasing to the eye (and even more so to the taste buds) and customers photos pretty much took themselves! The response has been so good that we've been invited along to a number of other events, if you want to see eclairs again soon come visit us at The Sweet Expo this weekend in Sydney Olympic Park at The Showgrounds.

Happy Macaron Day!

And to celebrate, here's three fun facts about the ever so delicate and delicious macarons we have to know and love!

1. Originally, macarons were made of just almond flour, sugar, and egg whites. No filling, whatsoever. 

2. The first macaron derived from Italy rather than France and was brought over in 1533 by the chef of Italian noblewomen (and later Queen of France) Catherine De Medici. It was credited by Pierre Desfontaines who had the idea to fill them with creamy ganache as it was originally served as a single cookie. 

3. 'Macaron' is a delicate, light meringue cookie often filled with ganache. 'Macaroon' on the other hand, is a hearty mounded cookie made with shredded coconut, often topped with jam or dipped in chocolate.

Recipe for Christmas All Year Long

Take a heap of child-like wonder
That opens up our eyes
To the unexpected gifts in life—
Each day a sweet surprise.

Mix in fond appreciation
For the people whom we know;
Like festive Christmas candles,
Each one has a special glow.

Add some giggles and some laughter,
A dash of Christmas food,
(Amazing how a piece of pie
Improves our attitude!)

Stir it all with human kindness;
Wrap it up in love and peace,
Decorate with optimism, and
Our joy will never cease.

If we use this healthy recipe,
We know we will remember
To be in the Christmas spirit,
Even when it's not December.

By Joanna Fuchs

Wishing you all a happy and safe December!
