Don't you just love the strawberry season! The first of the berries have just become ripe so here's to a long and hearty season!Read More
There's a quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero which states that "Silence is one of the great arts of conversation". Don't really know what it is about the saying but it kind of fits! It's been a while...Read More
I think I fall in love with every season. As soon as a new season rolls around, I remember how much i've been missing it. The flowers, the damp grass and the light, crisp mornings. The lambs, the knee length socks and fields of daisies. Seriously, what's not to love?!Read More
So here you go. Salmon + Sriracha Mayo Sushi Donuts. Anyone who knows me well will know that I am obsessed with asian cuisine. The freshness and vibrancy of the flavours and textures are so exciting on the tongue and good for the soul. So these sushi donuts are the latest inspiration. My brother isn't a fan of sushi simply because of the use of seaweed. Don't ask me why, maybe it's just the concept or simply because he is fussy! Anyway, these are an ode to him. Simple, fresh and fast.Read More
Friand + donut = fronut!
Basically these are just friands made in a donut pan. Light, buttery with a delicate taint of almonds. Friands are "small cakes made from almond meal and typically flavoured with fruit" (Collins). For this recipe, I focused on natural colours and flavours so the light yellow friand mixture is flavoured with lemon zest and the brilliant glaze is 100% coloured and flavoured using blueberries (I handpick mine from an orchard in Thames and freeze them for winter).Read More
Wowsers it's been one of those weeks! So happy to have just finished the last of my exams! With this in mind, it's actually a bittersweet feeling. Bonds will be broken so new ones can form.
So, how did these come about? I guess you'd call it a craving for cute macarons. Something to bring a smile to little faces. Flavours to bring smiles to big faces when they taste a little childhood indulgence. Although 'raspberry + lemonade' may sound clashy, loud and fake, trust me, i'm a big believer in using natural ingredients and flavours.Read More
I made the recipe to suit an afternoon affair with a friend (the perfect moment/time/place) however feel free to double or triple the recipe if you have lots of friends! :D You could even chose to add ice cream instead of cream to create a desert. Or, if you not a fan of cream (me!), go ahead and drink it alone for a richer flavour.... yum!Read More
I figured these might just brighten your week! I don't know what it is about unicorns. Maybe it's the soft pastels, or childhood fantasies or just because they are simply gorgeous whimsical creatures! Despite it all, it was time to create a unicorn cupcake....
Unicorns are everywhere nowdays. Make these are you'll definitely be in on the trend. Whether it's unicorn chocolate bark, unicorn lattes, unicorn cakes or giant pink unicorn phone cases, they're everywhere!! Sooooo, what's better than this gorgeous creature as a cupcake? ;PRead More
