It’s time for some festive sweets!

One thing I learnt from this exercise was that puff pastries require a LOT of patience but once you get it right, you can't help but do a little jig to celebrate your success! I used Gordon Ramsay's 'Rough Puff Pastry' recipe, while making a tiny alteration by adding lime juice.
