Biscuits & Cookies, Edible Gifts, Recipes / 03.12.2018

I'm always in search of great edible gift ideas, especially around this time of year. If you've ever made a homemade gift for a loved one you'll know how appreciated it is! Since I had no biscotti recipes on my blog I thought this was a good place to start. Biscotti look beautiful when simply packaged in cellophane with a ribbon, or in a pretty glass jar. And who doesn't love a crisp biscotti with their tea or coffee? Traditionally biscotti are made with almonds or other nuts but Β I wanted something a little different. I love the rich, spicy flavours...

I've been meaning to try my hand at a Salted Caramel recipe for some time. They are, in my opinion, one of the most addictively delicious sweets around! I recently attended the Saveur Blog Awards in Memphis and discovered the perfect locally-made Salted Caramel. With some restraint, I managed to not eat ALL of them so that I had some reference samples to bring back to South Africa and try to copy. In my research I found that there are 2 different ways to make these sweets - the first is by cooking all the ingredients at the same time until...

Sponsored Post If you haven't discovered pull-apart cupcake cakes yet, you are in for a treat! These "cakes" are actually made up of individual cupcakes. This makes them easy to portion, and less messy and wasteful than large cakes. Perfect for parties! Another benefit of using cupcakes is that you can make almost any shaped cake you desire by simply arranging the cupcakes in different ways. With Christmas around the corner (is it that time already?) I was inspired to make this festive Christmas Cupcake Wreath. It's made up of 24 cupcakes, so a fab dessert if you are feeding a...

Edible Gifts, Recipes, Sweets & Treats / 23.11.2018

If you're looking for an easy edible gift this festive season, look no further! This Cranberry and Pistachio Fudge uses only white chocolate and condensed milk as the base, plus there's no sugar thermometer required. So technically it's not real fudge (made with butter, sugar and cream) but I'm all for shortcuts at this very busy time of year! It's hard to believe something so delicious takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. The white chocolate makes the fudge extra creamy and sweet, then the cranberries add a lovely bit of tartness. Add to that the crunchy chunks of gingersnaps and...
