The original motivation to make this tart was because there was a huge bottle of Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur in the pantry that no one had any idea what to do with. I accepted the challenge. The results were tasty, and the chocolate hazelnut praline tart has been welcomed onto the ‘to make again’ list.
Guess who made crème mousseline for the first time!! 🙂 This fraisier cake was made for mum’s birthday! Continue reading
Hello everyone and Happy Easter! I hope everyone is enjoying this extra long weekend with good company.
Many firsts happened with the making of this tart! It was the first time I have used key limes to making anything, and it was also the first time I used the grill setting on my oven! I can tell you I dithered a substantial amount over the idea before I plucked up enough nerve to slide my 99% done tart under it to brown the meringue but I think it came out splendid! 🙂 Continue reading
As 2017 draws to a close, I hope everyone had a wonderful time celebrating Christmas or just spending time with family and friends over the festive season. I spent the days following up to Christmas making ‘stained glass’ cookies (pictures down below!), pumpkin soup and a bûche de noël (yule log) to share for when family came over for a Christmas dinner. It was quite a bit of work on my behalf, but I do enjoy being busy and making something to be proud of! 🙂
This cake was one of the first cakes I made when I started baking, and remains one of my family’s favourites. As this cake is not too heavy or sweet, it really is a good tea time…or any time cake!
This post is about a month late, but better late than never right?
Another cake that was put together in about 15 minutes after coming home from work- all the sponge layers and cream had been prepared, but I wanted to keep everything as fresh as possible, and that included not assembling the cake overnight.
I made this for my sister’s birthday in December last year, cardboard ‘V’ and all made by yours truly! 🙂
