I have been wanting to make marshmallows for a very long time. So when I got my beautiful Kenwood Chef Titanium stand mixer as a birthday gift, the first thing I made was these yummy vanilla marshmallows! I generally believe that anything home-made tastes better than shop-bought, but certain home-made goodies are really streets ahead of the bought variety. Marshmallows fall into that category. The texture is just so light and fluffy, they almost melt in your mouth. Just like little puffy clouds. Once you have mastered the basic recipe, you can play around with all sorts of flavours and colours too. You...

Just about every baker out there will tell you they have the BEST chocolate cake recipe. But you can ignore them. Because this recipe is the only chocolate cake recipe you'll ever need! I've been using this recipe for over 20 years and it has never flopped. That's what I call fool-proof! This is a simple and straightforward chocolate cake. No difficult techniques or fancy ingredients. It has a lovely, light texture and is not too rich. The beauty of this cake is you can make it as modest or as magnificent as you like. A basic topping of whipped cream is absolutely delicious, or for a...

If you want to up your cake game, say no to boring buttercream! This chocolate fudge icing has an amazing texture - like that of a spreadable fudge! It might be a little hard to imagine but once you taste it you will know what I mean. It's pretty special. The unique texture is all thanks to a surprise ingredient...

Everybody loves little food. It's a thing. Make a miniature version of something and it's instantly a hit. Why? Maybe it's the cute factor. Or maybe because there is less guilt associated with eating it. Or is it because people love trying lots of different things? Why commit to 1 slice of cheesecake when you can nibble on a whole variety of goodies instead! I made these little cheesecakes for a picnic and they worked perfectly. Having bite-size version's means no need to slice and serve.  No mess, no fuss! They are also fab if you are serving up a variety of...

I'd love to tell you that my favourite thing about these ice lollies is that they are made with only fruit and are therefore super-healthy. But I'd be lying. What I love most about them is that are just so pretty! I mean look at those colours! Isn't it pleasing to know that all those lovely, bright colours come from fruit alone? These lollies are a great way to get your kids to eat something healthy on a hot summer's day. In fact once they see these beautiful treats, you may have to fight them for one! All you need to make these is fruit, water, a blender, and ice lolly...

Halloween is as good a reason as any to get baking. This is a great time to get extra creative and make something a little different. Like some creepy eyeballs for example. Edible of course! In a previous post I spoke about the deliciousness of cake pops. As well as the fact that they are rather time-consuming to make. A special occasion, like a Halloween party definitely warrants a little extra effort. Kids and adults alike will certainly be staring when they see these creepy treats and the treats will be staring right back at them! In my opinion, no Halloween table would be complete...

The sun is shining, the mercury is rising and that can only mean one thing - it's ice cream time! There are so many exciting flavours of ice cream I want to share with you, and admittedly I started with a tricky one because the main ingredient is a little hard to come by. Cookie Butter! If you haven't had the joy of tasting this delight then waste no more time - it's basically life changing. It's a delicious spreadable butter made with Speculaas biscuits (yummy caramelised, spicy Dutch biscuits) that you can have on toast, pancakes, or just by the spoonful. Completely addictive! For this recipe you...

Some people love peanut butter, some people hate it. I fall into the love category, my hubby - the hate. This means I don't make peanut butter flavoured goodies all that often. So when I do, I don't hold back on the peanut butter. These yummy peanut butter bars are made with a whole jar of the stuff! That's right, an entire jar. Apart from that, there are just a few ingredients, and the recipe is so quick and easy your kids could probably make them! For those of you who have ever tried a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, you'll know that peanut butter and chocolate...
