Twinkling Christmas lights, the smell of mulled wine and festive food – yes, we were at the Taste of London winter show this weekend.
The beautiful Tobacco Docks were a wonderful setting for this festive event and the stands and food on offer certainly did not disappoint. We also picked up some great baking and flavour inspiration whilst we were there.
We particularly loved these colourful and delicious macaroons from Ganache Macaron. Seeing all these delicious bitesize treats has reminded us what a great homemade gift our own Christmas macaroons are.
Note to self: add ingredients for macaroons to Christmas shopping list.
Some bakers had got really creative with the Christmas theme, there was an adorable display of Christmas elves completely crafted from chocolate which looked too good to eat.
There were also a good selection of festive cupcakes and a rather impressive tiered Grinch cake. To make your own version of these Christmas cupcakes check out our recipe with a simple step by step guide to decorate with your favourite characters.
We were particularly fond of the marshmallow stands. These really would make a delicious foodie Christmas gift (hint hint Santa!) however if you aren’t lucky enough to receive these in your stocking this year, don’t get too down as we have a simple recipe to make you own.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed the show and left brimming with lots of creative ideas to spread the Christmas joy this year, we really can’t wait for the big day now.
