These frozen fruit pops are amazing and easy to make. I prefer them just slightly frozen since they can be still soft to bite into but nice and cool. The fruit can be varied according to what is available and there is so much flavour and sweetness that the chocolate […]

These lemon and coconut cupcakes just remind me of summer, the brightness of the icing and the freshness of the lemon. The flavours of homemade buttercream icing always surprises me, it’s just so much stronger than the store bought versions and so amazing when fresh.

For these festive danish pastries I used some frozen puff pastry which is prerolled. I allowed it to defrost in the fridge for a few hours and hey presto it was ready. I also found it easier when I was cutting the slices to slice from the middle outwards, this […]
