If it's a light and fresh dessert you're after, you've come to the right place. This deliciously lemony cheesecake makes a great ending to a heavy meal. The tartness of the lemon curd cuts through the richness of the creamy cheesecake leaving you wanting more with every bite! If that hasn't got your mouth watering then imagine the addition of a scrumptiously crunchy ginger biscuit crust. The result is the perfect combo of citrus and spice! This cheesecake is really simple to make but needs to be prepared a few hours in advance. Or save yourself some time and make it the day...

You may remember the Cake Pop craze which dominated the baking world a few years ago. I'm not ashamed to admit I jumped on that bandwagon with great enthusiasm. Bakerella, the inventor of the Cake Pop, remains one of my food heroes to this day. A Cake Pop is a mixture of cake crumbs and icing, rolled into balls, placed on a stick like a lollipop and dipped in chocolate. They are moist, delicious and a real delight to look at. I will say this though, they are rather a lot of work to make. For this reason, they are great for a...

Pound cakes date back hundreds of years and were baked by our grandmothers and their grandmothers too. Traditionally a pound cake consists of a pound of butter, a pound of sugar, a pound of eggs and a pound of flour, hence the name. How easy is that! Even the most inexperienced baker can remember the recipe by heart, and bake a delicious pound cake at a moment's notice. These days most so-called pound cakes have been adapted so much they barely resemble a pound cake at all. Whilst I have no problem adapting a recipe to improve it, I quite like the...

This is no ordinary cake. For starters it's made with delicious Milo for a unique, malty chocolate flavour. Then there's the extra sweet and creamy condensed milk icing. Since we're being quite decadent anyway, let's make it a triple decker too. Go big or go home! I love cake. I love icing. I love condensed milk. But it's the crunchy Milo sprinkles on the outside that really do it for me. Most South African's grew up drinking Milo (it's Australian, not South African...

If you don't know about the mirror glaze craze, I can only assume you've been temporarily living on Mars. It all began when Olga Noskova shared photos of her creations on Instagram. Before long they had gone viral and for good reason. There is just something about the mirror-shine that is so mesmerising, you can't look away! A mirror glaze will transform a boring old cake into a sophisticated show-stopper.  It will most certainly be a talking point among your guests as they ogle over the glossy, reflective shine. Mirror Glaze The Sweet Rebellion from Astrid Field on Vimeo. All you need to do this yourself is a kitchen...
