So why I am on my holibobs, I’ve opened up my blog to guest posts. These 2 delicious recipes are bought to you from Joe Hughes from the Village Bakery, enjoy!
I made these bunny cake pops for the kids for Easter weekend, but they can be a cute treat any time of the year. As an added bonus they were surprisingly easy to make.
The idea of flower pot cakes wasn’t mine originally. I’m not sure where it came from but it’s been in my head for the last year or so. I was in two minds as to whether or not to post this, as my version of flower pot cakes didn’t quite turn out as Pinterstically perfect as I had imagined! However, I’m posting it nether the less, maybe someone will see it and let me know how to perfect it.
I love baking, and I really enjoying baking with my children. OK so it’s far messier when they are around (I’m not the tidiest baker myself to be honest!), and it does tend to take twice as long to get anything done, but I genuinely enjoy it. As a bonus I think they do too, beyond the licking of the spoon and enjoying the results! This marshmallow rice crispie heart recipe is a simple take on a classic that the children can get involved in making and eating!
After the success of my slow cooker chocolate fudge recipe, I thought I would mix it up a bit and try a different variation. This white chocolate and cherry version is just as simple, and just as delicious. It is also a great gift idea for someone special!
For her 5th birthday party the other week, Isla requested a My Little Pony rainbow cake. Always up for a challenge, I obliged and tried my best. I decided to carry on the rainbow theme for some of the party food and created rainbow cupcakes, cake pops and rainbow coloured fruit skewers to balance all the cakes on offer!
Nothing quite sums up the taste of Christmas than a mince pie with brandy cream! As i’m not a huge lover of pastry, I decided to set about trying to make a cheesecake as a twist on the classic mince pie, that incorporated all these festive flavours in a delicious dessert perfect for the upcoming holiday season.
I got into jam making a few years ago, and even though I don’t eat much jam myself I love making it. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than turning produce grown in our garden in to lovely jam. We have rhubarb in abundance this year, so I am experimenting with different rhubarb jam recipes, and this is the first of them.
