Ever since I spotted one of these beautiful Ice Cream Drip Cakes on Pinterest, I've been looking for an excuse to make one. Finally, the perfect occasion - my twin niece and nephew had their 3rd birthday party and Auntie Astrid was given free rein in making them each a cake! (Not pictured here is the equally beautiful blue version.) It was a delight to see their little faces light up at the sight of the cake, and oh did we have fun trying to explain it wasn't actually ice cream in the cone! Please don't be intimidated about making this...

There is something about layered desserts that looks so striking. Having several layers in one dessert means a different combination of flavours and textures in every bite! These Mini Milo Trifles consist of layers of crunchy biscuit, chocolate ganache, soft condensed milk jelly, malty Milo custard and a swirl of whipped cream to finish. Although each layer is easy to make, this dessert does require some planning as the layers need to cool and set in time before adding the next layer.  Your patience will however be rewarded when you see the resulting mini trifles, just begging to be tasted! P.S. Milo...

I previously discovered that brownies and choc-chip cookies are phenomenal friends when I made my Choc-chip Cookie Oreo Brownies. Which got me thinking about S’mores. Traditionally these American campfire treats are made by sandwiching chocolate and a marshmallow between two Graham Crackers (digestive-like biscuits). This combination of layers inspired me to make a S’mores-inspired Layer Cake using choc-chip cookies, brownies, chocolate ganache and marshmallow meringue. I was expecting it to be pretty delicious - I mean you can’t really go wrong with that combo, right? But let me tell you - this cake was delicious on another level! And rather grand-looking too,...

Doughnuts are right up there with my favourite treats in the whole world. Light and fluffy on the inside, crispy fried on the outside and then either filled with or covered in something sweet and decadent. What's always put me off making my own is the whole frying business. Being as clumsy as I am, the thought of litres of bubbling hot oil anywhere near me made me a little nervous. Until I discovered the wonder of this Russell Hobbs Digital deep fryer. Not only does it heat the oil in a matter of minutes, but it maintains the temperature of the...

I know this marbled glaze is impressing you right now. Let me tell you, the cake underneath is equally impressive. It's incredibly dense and rich in texture, and ultra-chocolatey in flavour. That's thanks to not only the deliciously dark chocolate in the mixture. But also the cacao butter. That's right - cacao butter. It's a wonderful ingredient to use in baking when you want to boost the chocolate flavour. Cacao butter also works as a great substitute for butter when you're going dairy-free. As cacao butter contains less water than regular butter, it gives an extra dense texture to cakes and...
