Yesterday, a friend and I stopped by a new store on Twijnstraat called Josephine. I’d heard about them recently, particularly the fact that they sell macarons and other tasty treats. I follow various food blogs and websites and have been hearing about macarons for years now, but had yet to ever try one. This was my chance!
I went with the pink one toward the back, which was a strawberry flavour. They were lovely! Crisp outside and chewy soft inside! But the thing that particularly caught my interest — and made my tastebuds sing — was the salted caramel chocolate bullet. They come in a variety of flavours and I’m dying to try more now, because it seems that most of them have a core of the flavour, with the chocolate casing.
Yesterday was like a lead up, treat wise, for today, which is my birthday. To celebrate, I made a Boston Cream Pie Cake, which is yellow cake with a custard center, and a chocolate frosting. I can’t wait to try it!
