Strawberry and Coconut Cake Pops

strawberry-coconut-cake-pops-cu

This is my first foray into the world of Cake Pops, which are cake crumbled and mixed with icing, rolled into balls and then dipped in melted chocolate. I hate to waste food, and I had a lot of left over cake and icing from my Strawberry and Coconut Ombre Cakes. So cake pops were [...]

Coconut, Berry and Chia Porridge

porridge

Cold winter mornings equals porridge in my books – it’s like a big warm hug. I’ve been making this coconut, berry and chia porridge religiously for the past 2 months and I’m still not sick of it! Using coconut milk instead of cow’s milk not only gives it a great coconutty flavour, but means it’s [...]

Dark Chocolate and Strawberry Cupcakes

I get my baking inspiration from a huge range of sources, from a pin I see on Pinterest, to a dessert I try at a restaurant whilst abroad. This week’s inspiration was from a block of Lindt chocolate my mother gave me when I was feeling sick. “Chocolate is very therapeutic” she said (what a [...]

Salted Caramel and Tim Tam Cheesecake

This decadent cake combines three of my favourite things – salted caramel, Tim Tams and cheesecake. And unsurprisingly, they each complement each other perfectly.

Raspberry and Coconut Cupcakes

I was asked to create some cupcakes for a friend’s 30th that “weren’t too sweet”, and after ignoring her boring request of vanilla (sorry) I knew something featuring berries was the way to go. It also helped that the colour theme for her birthday was pink, so I could colour the icing naturally. Raspberry and [...]

White Chocolate Easter Bark with Popping Candy

This is a super easy and fun Easter recipe that makes a great present. It was my first time marbling chocolate and I must admit I over mixed it in excitement and it ended up looking slightly like a psychedelic acid trip. With edible glitter! It’s an incredibly flexible recipe that you can tailor to [...]
