There's something about biting into an ice cream sandwich that really makes you feel like a kid again. I guess it's because there is simply no elegant way to eat it! These gorgeous, eye-catching treats are always a hit with both kids and adults, and its not hard to see why. The combination of deliciously chewy chocolate chip cookies, cool and creamy vanilla ice cream, and bright, tasty toppings means they're a feast for the eyes as well as the taste-buds! An ice cream sandwich may seem like a super simple dessert to make, but there are a few useful tricks...

Sponsored.When you bring this stunning showstopper of a dessert to the table, you’ll definitely receive a few ooh’s and aah’s from your guests – and that’s before they’ve even tasted it! Little do they know that it’s actually super-easy to make, especially for such a grand and impressive dessert.Despite trying to imitate a Christmas Pudding, this baby tastes nothing like it! No heavy, stodgy pudding here, just rich chocolate ice cream and lots of crunchy Bakers®  Biscuits, roasted hazelnuts and juicy red glacé cherries. All of this topped with a creamy white chocolate ganache (essential for that Christmas Pudding look) and some cherries for a festive flair.  (When...

I don't know about you, but I'm so ready to see my friends again! It's been 6 weeks of lockdown now - that's 6 weeks of not leaving the house at all. Although I've always been quite a home-body and enjoyed spending my days in the kitchen, it's not quite the same when you don't have anyone to share your creations with. My husband has some of it, but he actually doesn't have much of a sweet-tooth! So although it still feels like an absolute age until we can have friends round for dinner again, I've already planned the...

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...

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 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...

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...

It's no secret that I love Banoffee Pie! The simple combination of bananas, caramel, whipped cream and crunchy biscuits is a classic that I never get bored of. A recent Instagram poll confirmed that just like me, many of you also love this combo, especially on waffles! This got me thinking what a great ice cream flavour it would make. Using the same ingredients as Banoffee Pie (except for melted butter), I was able to make this easy no-churn Banoffee Ice Cream. I like to freeze my ice cream container before-hand, and also have my cream and caramel very cold before I...

Happy New Year fellow bakers, dessert-lovers and friends! Are you among the many who are starting the year on a healthy note, cutting down on sugar, dairy or fat? Then this Brown Sugar Peach Ice Cream recipe is just for you! Not because it’s sugar-, dairy- or fat-free, but because you’re going to need an indulgent dessert to dive into to reward yourself for being so healthy! Use lovely fresh peaches in season for maximum flavour, but tinned peaches will do fine out of season.   Ingredients: For the Ice Cream base: 375ml milk 375ml cream pinch of salt 4 large egg yolks 185ml brown sugar For the Peach Swirl 350g...

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...
