Cakes & Cupcakes / 27.08.2018

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...

Toasted marshmallows on an open fire - what could be more reminiscent of a night in the bush or a camping weekend? In fact, even a casual braai or indoor fire is an excuse to get some marshmallows toasting in my opinion! Nothing quite compares to that toasty, roasted flavour - ever so slightly burnt and crispy on the outside, and gooey and soft on the inside. I was determined to translate this flavour into an ice cream and my new Russell Hobbs ice cream maker gave me the perfect excuse to get experimenting. As it turns out, this Toasted Marshmallow...

The sight of figs in the shops always signals the end of summer to me. Which is sad, but not really, because figs are amazing! I felt that this Roasted Fig and Walnut Maple Ice Cream would be a perfect dish to cross over from summer into autumn. The warm, caramelised figs and toasted walnuts hint at autumn, the cool ice cream refreshing enough for a late summer evening. It’s really worth splurging on a bottle of real maple syrup for the ice cream - the flavour is incomparable! Use what’s left to make some Pecan Pie Granola or drizzle over...

The combination of ice cream, popcorn and caramel may seem a little strange at first but let me assure you, it is a wonderful combination indeed. The slightly salty, crunchy popcorn adds a totally new dimension to the sweet, creamy vanilla ice cream. Smother this in rich, salted caramel sauce and you have yourself a Caramel Popcorn Ice Cream Sundae to die for! As with many things in life, homemade is so much better than shop-bought. This is definitely true of caramel popcorn.  I find the shop-bought variety sickly sweet with only a mild caramelised flavour in comparison to this recipe. Not...

It's officially spring in SA and the long, sunny days are back. For those living in Jo'burg it seems that you bypassed Spring altogether and jumped straight into Summer! The gorgeous hot weather is perfectly timed with National Braai Day on 24 September. Most South Africans will be spending the day outdoors with friends, basking in the sunshine and enjoying a lekker stukkie wors. I was looking for a new take on a traditional South African dessert for the occasion. It is Heritage Day after all. Peppermint Crisp Tart is a real South African favourite. It's made by layering coconut biscuits, caramel,...

It's hard not to feel like a little kid when you have a mouth full off chocolate cookie and minty-green ice cream dripping down your fingers! These chocolate mint chip ice cream sandwiches are fabulous for entertaining as you can prepare the cookies and ice cream well in advance, and just assemble them when it's time to serve. Now of course you could fill your cookies with shop-bought vanilla ice cream - *boring*. I highly recommend you mix up some Mint Chocolate-Chip Ice Cream instead*. Your guests will be wowed by the interesting flavour and the minty colour is right on trend too! There...

Creamy, cool and just a little bit chocolatey. This mint chocolate-chip ice cream succeeds at being both refreshing and indulgent at once. The ultimate treat on a hot summer's day! It's perfect just as it is, scooped into a cone, or served with a rich chocolate sauce for an extra chocolate hit. The key to the perfect mint ice-cream is subtlety. This refers to both the flavour and the colour. You need only a drop or two of colouring to achieve a beautiful, mild mint-green hue. And go easy on the peppermint flavour too. Heavy-handedness will result in a mouth-numbing and bitter taste. An ice-cream...

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...
