Flavour Profile: Carrot Cake

CarrotCakeMacaron

“First he ate some lettuces and some French beans; and then he ate some radishes.” And THEN he ate some Carrot Cake Macarons!

Doesn’t this fall-ish air smell wonderful?? We’re kicking off root vegetable season with some Carrot Cake Macarons. As with the cake we’ve used real bits of carrot throughout, and we’ve whipped up a cream cheese frosting filling. We think even Peter Rabbit would approve! The rascally bunny is well over 100 years old now—he was created in 1893 by Beatrix Potter, in a letter she wrote to cheer up a young boy who was ill. So sweet! Peter Rabbit has since made an appearance on everything from spoons to television specials, but the little book itself will never lose its magic. Here’s a selection of some lovely, vintage Peter Rabbit/Beatrix Potter paraphernalia to peruse while nibbling on a macaron or two!
