Win a Box of Autumnal Macarons from Bicycle Bakes!

Details of this

Spiced pumpkin, maple whisky, caramel apple, chai. . . Conjuring “cooler days and the return of cashmere sweaters, candles and endless cups of tea”, the new macaron collection from Bicycle Bakes is autumn on a plate.

Famous for her flawless French macarons – notoriously tricky sweet treats to perfect – Cambridge’s Gwyneth Horscroft is also known for her brownies (seriously fudgy, seriously moreish) and cookies (satisfyingly large, satisfyingly chewy), along with flapjacks, honeycombs, loaf cakes and traybakes. And, though her reputation belies it, she’s only been baking professionally since May of 2020.

When lockdown prompted Gwyneth to press pause on her dayjob in the travel industry – she’s a self-employed corporate agent – she busied herself in the kitchen.

Long a keen baker, whose friends had often said she should sell her wares, she decided to try her hand at French macarons – and the results were so good, even she was impressed.
