Not only do I love raspberries, but I adore mini desserts of any kind! I love the idea of serving a pretty individual cake instead of a comparatively chunky slice. It's just so much more delicate and pretty. That's why making these Raspberry and Lemon Mini Cakes was a no-brainer for me. And here's the thing, you don't need any fancy mini cake tins to pull this off, just a good ol' baking tray and a round cookie cutter! Yes there will be a teeny bit of cake left over after cutting, but it surely won't go to waste. If you...

I recently hosted a baby shower for a friend, so naturally pink macarons were in order! When it came to planning the flavour, I immediately thought of Raspberry and White Chocolate - one of my favourite combinations. Macarons being the tricky little guys that they are, it's best not add any fruit purée, so I used a concentrated raspberry flavour (available at baking stores). I love using creamy ganache as a filling for macarons but this time I decided to whip the ganache.

Jam is a wonderful way to concentrate that juicy raspberry flavour so you can enjoy it anytime. My ultimate is spreading it onto a warm and crispy buttered croissant. Compared to a jelly, which is a transparent gel made of fruit juice and sugar, jam generally has chunks of fruit and is more spreadable. To classify as a jam, the finished product must contain 60% sugar. Yes, it's a lot! The sugar doesn't only sweeten the jam though, it also assists...

I'm always on the lookout for impressive looking desserts that are deceptively easy to make. I reckon this is the winner in that category! No fancy equipment required - all you need to get this right is a cupcake/muffin tin and small glass jars. Panna cotta is a delicious Italian dessert which is very simply a sweetened, set cream. Ask any chef about panna cotta and the word "wobble" will almost certainly come up. The perfect panna cotta will be set firm and hold its shape but should not be too jelly-like. It has a beautiful, creamy melt-in-the-mouth texture. I did...
