Edible Gifts, Recipes, Sweets & Treats / 14.02.2020

Valentine's Day is here once again (where did January go?!) and I couldn't let the day pass without making some suitably romantic treats. It's the one holiday where I don't restrain my urges to go all out, over-the-top pink and sugary on you guys! So here are some pretty White Chocolate and Cherry Hearts. These little hearts are a fun and easy no-bake treat that can be made with just a few ingredients. The filling is made from icing sugar, condensed milk and cherry flavour, with a touch of lemon juice to balance out all that sweetness. I got the cherry...

Cakes & Cupcakes, Recipes / 08.02.2019

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.

At the risk of sounding like a Masterchef judge, when it comes to food I’m definitely of the belief that flavour comes first. But when it looks as pretty as this Peach and White Chocolate Tart, that doesn’t hurt either! It’s amazing how just taking a little extra time to cut your fruit into shapes totally transforms a tart into a showstopper. Cookie cutters usually don’t come in sizes small enough for this purpose, but you can find a variety of fondant plunge cutters at your local baking store (usually sold in sets of 3). Like I said though, it’s all about...

Biscuits & Cookies, Recipes / 12.02.2018

I had a lot of fun making these Valentine's Day Fortune Cookies! Once you get the hang of the folding and curling, they are very easy to make. And you get to write your very own personal message for your loved one to receive as a sweet surprise! I used a good quality almond extract for the flavour and it really adds something special. The cookies actually taste great without the chocolate too, but in the spirit of Valentine's Day I felt they needed a little "bling"! Ingredients: 2 large egg whites 45ml butter, melted and cooled 2 tsp water ½ tsp Nielsen-Massey Almond Extract (available...
