Mini Chocolate Orange Cheesecakes

I’m back again with yet another “mini dessert” post! I love creating desserts in mini glasses for guests to grab from dessert tables. So when I was tasked with creating a Valentines themed table, I knew a cheesecake would go down a storm and would require next to no-time for me to put together.

The only problem was that I’d actually never made a cheesecake before! Shock horror I know – I have no idea why I hadn’t made these sooner since it was super easy, required very little ingredients and was extremely easy to assemble. With no baking time required, it meant I didn’t need to slave over the oven and I couldn’t wait to use my favourite Terry’s chocolate orange in a bake.

Valentine’s Dessert Table

With Valentine’s day fast approaching I thought I’d throw it back to this little dessert table I put together for a Valentine’s party last year. Any excuse for a party (and one that includes desserts) and I’m there in a heartbeat – who said Valentine’s day is only for couples?

Hello all – it’s been a while hasn’t it? Excuse my absence but I come baring ‘gifts’ – a post dedicated to an indoor picnic party I threw last year!

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!

Aloha! It’s been a while hasn’t it? Fret no more, I have a plethora of baking recipes that are soon to come your way. First up are these incredibly cute personalised biscuits which I baked for a recent birthday party. The personalisation makes these biscuits slightly more special making them the perfect party favours.

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.
