SponsoredTrifle is one of my husband’s favourite desserts – and definitely his favourite Christmas dessert. That’s why I have quite a few trifle variations on my blog and couldn’t resist adding another one this year! This time I thought I’d use some of my favourite gingerbread biscuits to make little gingerbread trifles. Since pears work so well with the spicy ginger flavour of the biscuits, I used those for my fruit layer and then some ginger ale jelly for a little freshness. Of course, a trifle wouldn’t be a trifle without Danone Ultra Mel Vanilla Custard! In order...

I've been waiting somewhat impatiently for ruby grapefruits to come into season. Not only is their beautiful red flesh a delight to look at, but their zesty and slightly bitter flavour is unlike any other fruit. Grapefruits work wonderfully in desserts, where that refreshing citrus flavour offsets both the sweetness and richness that could otherwise be cloying. There's no question that gin and grapefruit work well together in cocktails, and the same is true for this cheesecake! Although adding it is technically optional, a touch of gin really brings this cheesecake to life and makes it something special. A neutral...

There is something about layered desserts that looks so striking. Having several layers in one dessert means a different combination of flavours and textures in every bite! These Mini Milo Trifles consist of layers of crunchy biscuit, chocolate ganache, soft condensed milk jelly, malty Milo custard and a swirl of whipped cream to finish. Although each layer is easy to make, this dessert does require some planning as the layers need to cool and set in time before adding the next layer.  Your patience will however be rewarded when you see the resulting mini trifles, just begging to be tasted! P.S. Milo...

If you're looking for a light and refreshing summer dessert, this Sparkling Berry Jelly is just for you! It combines sweet, fresh berries with fruit juice and sparkling wine. The fizzy bubbles actually set in the gelatine and dissolve on your tongue when you take a bite! I think this jelly would be a perfect New Years Eve dessert. Anything made with champers is automatically classified as "festive' in my book! Despite it's impressive appearance, it is an incredibly easy recipe to make. Plus it can be made days in advance and feeds a crowd. Other fruit and juice flavours work really well...

There appears to have been somewhat of a "trifle revival" taking place this year. Magazines, foodie programs and instagram all seem to be flooded with images of this retro dessert. As I always say, there is a reason classic dishes such as trifle have stood the test of time! The combination of cake, jelly, fruit, custard and cream is a definite winner. Let's be honest though, when serving it up it can look a little...

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...
