Sponsored.When Bakers® sent me a box of Bakers Choice Assorted® to make a festive dessert with, I had a really hard time choosing which of my favourite favourite biscuits to use! As such I decided to use all of the biscuits to make this delicious dessert sharing board.  I used 3 of the biscuit varieties to make mini desserts: mini Bakers Red Label® Lemon Cream trifles, Bakers Topper® cherry swirl ice cream sandwiches and mini Bakers Nuttikrust® caramel cheesecakes. Each recipe makes 12 mini desserts, which look beautiful when arranged on a large board or platter with some fresh berries, chocolate...

SponsoredRecently my vet recommended CBD oil to treat my dogs anxiety. Problem is, most CBD oils taste pretty unpleasant, and my fussy hound refused to consume it. Then I discovered the Select Pets flavoured hemp tinctures from Pet Heaven. Knowing how much my dog loves peanut butter, I decided to use the peanut butter flavoured oil to make some tasty Peanut Butter CBD dog treats. Now administering her medication is easy as pie, in fact she'd gobble up the whole jar of treats if she could! CBD Oil can be used for treating pain, anxiety and other illness symptoms in...

SponsoredTrifle is a classic Christmas dessert, and for good reason! What's not to love about layers of dipped biscuits, creamy custard, jelly, fruit and whipped cream. All the colours and textures work so beautifully together. I got to thinking that a frozen version of this traditional treat would make for a refreshing change, and would be perfect for our hot climate here in South Africa! This Trifle Ice Cream Cake is sure to wow your guests and delight the senses! It's made up of layers of finger biscuits, creamy Danone Ultramel Vanilla Custard ice cream, peach sorbet, strawberry jelly ice cream...

It was actually the beautiful crackly appearance of Choux Craquelin that tempted me to try it. But it's the amazing crunchy texture that has me making it again and again! Craquelin is a simple cookie-like dough made with just butter, sugar and flour. It is rolled very thin, cut into circles and placed on top of the choux buns (profiteroles) before baking. In the oven the craquelin bakes into the most delicious, crispy topping that totally transforms the choux buns. A really quick, easy step that is well worth the effort. The mousseline filling is essentially a crème pâtissière enriched with butter...

Halloween is the perfect time to get into the spirit of things and make a spine-chillingly scary showstopper of a cake! I've been obsessed with the fault-line cake trend that's recently hit Instagram, so I decided to make a Halloween version. Fault-line cakes are iced in a such a way that the cake appears to have a break through the middle exposing an inner layer that can be decorated in any number of ways. Although it may look complicated, it's actually very easy to achieve this striking effect. My idea was to have some creepy eyes peeking through the...

Salted Caramel M&M’s Multimillionaire Marshmallow Bars - if you think the name is a mouthful, wait until you take a bite! These decadent bars start with a crunchy, brown butter shortbread base, followed by light-as-air salted caramel marshmallow, topped with a layer of chocolate ganache and Salted Caramel M&M's! Salted Caramel M&M's? That's right - M&M's recently introduced a Limited Edition Salted Caramel flavour and it's available in South Africa just in time for Spring! The soft, chewy caramel centre is covered in milk chocolate and coated in a crisp candy shell. They are just as mouth-watering as they sound...

My love of Salted Caramel is so strong that I could not resist another Salted Caramel recipe! Macarons seemed an obvious choice - being rather sweet already they benefit from the hint of salt and touch of bitterness from the salted caramel. Also, the lovely creamy and gooey texture of the caramel filling makes for a delicious contrast with the crisp, chewy macarons. As with all my macaron recipes, I use the Italian meringue method which requires a sugar thermometer to cook the sugar syrup before adding to the egg whites. Personally, I find this method much more reliable than the...

In an ironic twist of fate, I married a man that doesn't have a sweet tooth. He's not a fan of desserts or chocolate or cake. I know, right?! I learned early on though that he does have one weakness when it comes to desserts: Apple Crumble. My husband loves Apple Crumble so much that he developed his own recipe which he knew only by "feel" (yet could duplicate perfectly every time he made it!). I can honestly and unbiasedly say his apple crumble recipe is perfect. Seriously. The apples are cooked just enough (not mushy but not too hard)...

Although we've never met in person, I feel like I've known Caroline Toich for years. She is the masterful baker behind Sweet Caroline's Cakery and I've been following her Instagram account closely ever since I saw one of her beautiful creations. Recently I spotted a batch of freshly made Banana Bread Rusks on Caroline's Instagram stories and immediately contacted her for the recipe. After one bite I knew the recipe was a winner. I asked her if I could share it with all of you, and she kindly agreed! These Banana Bread rusks start out as a sweet, dense banana...

It may be the middle of winter in South Africa, but that's never stopped me from enjoying a slice of ice cream cake. Especially one as magnificent as this one! Peppermint Crisp Tart (and all its variations) has proven to be a perennial favourite so I couldn't resist adding another recipe to the collection. This Peppermint Crisp Ice Cream Cake has a crunchy Tennis Biscuit crust, caramel ice cream layer, choc-mint ice cream layer, and a vanilla ice cream layer with Peppermint Crisp pieces. If you can bring yourself to slice through the beautiful layers and take a bite, you'll...
