I to love Chocolate Orange. They seem to always come out around Christmas time and incorporating this into a Cheesecake makes for a perfect winter dessert. I love making Cheesecakes as it’s one of the favourite desserts and they are so simple to make. There’s sooo many flavours as well I want to try out and experiment with. This one was yet another success and was so quick to whip up!
The clocks have turned back and Halloween is in a couple days! I guess it’s safe to say we are on our way into the winter season. Halloween isn’t something we really get into but I still like to carve a pumpkin and put on a film. This year I thought I’d do a bake as well. Something easy and simple that anyone else can do!
With Autumn in full spring I really wanted to do another bake with Apples this year. I did do one a couple of years ago when I first started this blog for an Apple Crumble Cake. If you fancy trying that here’s the link! Anyway, I found this recipe for a really simple cake which just requires a quick mix of ingredients and a 30 min bake. The cake is a vanilla sponge with apple pieces finished with a sugary cinnamon syrup for the top.
The mornings are darker, the days feel shorter and the weather is definitely colder! It finally feels as though summer is over and although that means goodbye to hot weather and the sun, there is still plenty to love about Autumn and Winter…and the food is one! I was originally looking for a recipe with Apples however then felt inspired to try something different with Aumtumnal spices and Pumpkin. It’s the month of Halloween after all.
This post is a few months late but, after a busy period of moving into a new home baking and blogging has been difficult. However, in April I had the privilege of making my brother’s wedding cake. For me, this was a massive achievement and something I didn’t think I was capable of. With some help from a flourist, the cake looked great. In this post, I will provide the recipes for all 3 tiers, how I constructed the cake as well as some tips for anyone who wants to give it a go! If you’re not sure all 3 tiers are great on their own as a celebration cake.
Sometimes you can’t beat a classic. Throughout all the years I’ve baked I’ve actually never made a classic Victoria Sponge so it was about time I gave it a go. It’s a great recipe if you’re looking for somewhere to start with baking. It’s so easy, simple and made from simple ingredients which won’t build up too much of an expense. It’s also a fantastic addition to a cup of tea or a glass of fizz!
