Sometimes you need a super-impressive dessert with minimal effort. In fact, I can't think of any occasion where such a dessert would not be ideal! That's where these utterly gorgeous Mini Lemon Baked Alaska's work perfectly. Apart from the meringue, the remaining components can all be shop-bought, and the majority of the preparation is done in advance. If you do happen to have some home-made lemon curd, sponge cake or vanilla ice cream at home then all the better! Baked Alaska's have a reputation for being difficult to make. This is because essentially you are applying high heat to a frozen...

Boo! Scared you, huh? Indeed it is that time of year where all things spooky and creepy permeate our Instagram feeds. Of course, I had to get on that bandwagon myself and contribute a terrifying typography cake that will frighten the bravest of humans. Halloween treats must be both terrifying and tasty, and the crunchy dark chocolate shortbread dispersed amongst a white vanilla cake takes care of both of these criteria. Serve with a splash of blood-red jam to maximise the scary surprise! Ingredients: Chocolate Boo Biscuits 150g butter, softened 110g sugar 185g flour 85g cocoa powder 1 bottle of black gel food colouring White Cake 115g butter 200g sugar 7ml vanilla extract 4 large egg...

It's great to have a few "free-from" recipes up your sleeve. Gluten and dairy intolerances seem more common than ever. So if you're having a bunch of friends around, chances are one of them will have an intolerance. No need for your other guests to suffer though. My initial view has been that "free-from" recipes are tasteless and a poor substitute for the real thing. But once I took bite of these Gluten & Dairy Free Chai Cookies, I changed my mind. Sink your teeth into one and you'll see what I mean. The crisp, toasted meringue topping gives way to a...

The perfect meringue is crisp on the outside, and slightly chewy and marshmallowy on the inside. When topped with clouds of cream and tart berries you have a splendid summer treat! This is a great dessert for a crowd as it easily feeds 10 people and the meringues can be made a few days in advance. As an added bonus its gluten-free. Meringues are incredible when you think about it. It's pretty amazing that two humble ingredients can be transformed into a beautiful and delicious confection! The magic of meringue comes down to the foaming properties of the proteins in the egg white. In...
