I very rarely dabble in the world of 3 tiered cakes but a special party meant I needed to produce something that had the WOW factor.

I was ready to take on the challenge but knew I wanted to bake something that was slightly different in flavour. After searching across the interweb, I came across this Biscoff cake recipe from Janes Patisserie (her blog is pretty awesome when it comes to playing around with flavours!) and I just had to give it a go.

Dessert Table #1

I’m a big fan of dessert tables – give me a reason for a party and I’ll be the first person to jump up to create a table filled with desserts to fit the theme.

I think it makes the perfect addition to any party and I’m a sucker for taking something simple and transforming it to look pretty. Having a dessert table helps to give the room a focal point and keeps the guests waiting eagerly and on their toes till the table opens up!

With the sun out in full force, it can only mean one thing, evenings in the sunshine filled with BBQs, drinks and desserts! I always struggle to decide what to take along to gatherings such as these so when I stumbled across this berry cake online, I knew it would be the ideal item to bake for a summer party.

With layers of genoise sponge, cream and berries, it’s the perfect after dinner treat which will go down a storm with all the guests. Although the actual cake is quite tedious to make, once in the oven the assembling process is super easy and there’s nothing better than seeing a perfectly layered cake.

Aloha! It’s been a while hasn’t it?

I’ve been wanting to make biscuits like these for ages now so was pleased when I finally found the chance.

The complete personalised biscuit required 3 simple steps and by using ready made fondant that I bought from the supermarket, I was able to eradicate any unnecessary steps.

Truly British Scones

We all love a good argument. And one item which has caused many an argument in the households across Britain are scones – yes you heard correctly – an English tea time treat has somehow managed to cause debates across the country. What kind of a world do we live in?

Us Brits have been in tethers for years about the correct pronunciation (s(cone) or s(con) – should it rhyme with ‘gone’ or ‘bone’?) and the correct way to construct (should the jam or cream be slathered on first?) a perfect scone.

My London Brunch Guide

Brunch – a late morning meal eaten instead of breakfast and lunch.

Brunch has to be one of my all-time favourite meals since it’s essentially an excuse to eat breakfast late in the day – an excuse to sleep in and still eat breakfast – my idea of heaven.

I’ve been roaming around the streets of London recently to find my ultimate Brunch hotspots and to satisfy my brunch cravings and thought this would be perfect little guide for those that are lacking inspiration or are looking for ideas from the eyes of a London local.
