Cakes & Cupcakes, Recipes / 13.06.2019

I adore making celebration cakes! It's a chance to experiment a little and play around with decorating techniques. The resulting cake simply must have that wow-factor that the recipient will remember and talk about for years! Funny thing though, when I was tasked with making a birthday cake for a male friend, I struggled a bit! So many of the beautiful cakes out there tend to look quite feminine. Not this Chocolate Whiskey Cake though! Big chunks of chocolate bars and little Whiskey bottles will have everyone fighting for their favourite piece. With hints of whiskey in the chocolate cake,...

My task was to create a healthier dessert, particularly one that was lower in sugar. As you all know, I'm not normally one to shy away from sugar. But...

Biscuits & Cookies, Brownies & Bars, Recipes / 17.05.2019

A few weeks ago I was in the mood for something really decadent and thought back to my Chocolate Chip Cookie Oreo Brownies. With a choc-chip cookie layer, Oreo layer and brownie layer, they truly are an indulgent treat! I wanted to create a variation on those, something equally decadent but with a different flavour. Peanut butter cookies are one of my weaknesses, and I love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter. So that's what led me to make these Peanut Butter Cookie Brownies. Instead of Oreo's for the middle layer, I used chocolate-coated peanuts, which add a...
