Sweet Shop Cake!

Yes...I've caught the Cadbury Fingers bug.

Oh Yes...

We were given one of those finger selection boxes (basically a big box with all 3 types of biscuit) for Christmas, and I ate it... ALL OF IT...in 2 days!!!

Will power...no!

Greedy cow...hell yeah!!

This cake is soo easy...

Make 2 vanilla sponge and buttercream (double the quantities of that post) bake in 18cm loose bottomed round tins.

When cooled sandwich the sponges together using strawberry or raspberry jam.

Cover all over with the butter cream ~ no need to be neat here are you won't see it ~ and place the fingers around the edge.

Completely cover the top of the cake with all the sweets you love. The possibilities are endless.

Et voila.

The end result is a, very easy to get, neatly finished cake.


Until next time.

Easy Strawberry & White Chocolate Buttons

Check out this pic....no fuzz!!

It's my birthday today and my hubby came through, as required, and bought me a new camera after breaking mine.

Thank you baby :-) xxxxx

Anyway...I was thinking of a quick Valentines treat I can make today while I look after the kids and try to have fun on my birthday at the same time. 

The perfect answer is CHOCOLATE!!

This is such a simple thing to do!

All you need is......

150g White Chocolate

What you do is......
  1. Melt the flavoured drops as per instructions.
  2. Drizzle over the macaroon mould ~ be as creative as you want.
  3. Melt the white chocolate in a heat proof bowl on a pan of simmering water (make sure the bowl doesn't touch the water).
  4. Gently pour the white chocolate into the moulds (don't over-fill)
  5. Ease the chocolate to the edges.
  6. Leave to cool and set
I've taken a pic of the half filled mould so you can see what I did.

I tried to get a fondant heart in the middle of some of the buttons but as you can see below, it didn't work so well. 

These are soo pretty and yummy AND easy that you have no excuse not to do it!!

Romantic Raspberry Cheesecake

There's nothing I love more than eating making deserts. No-bake cheesecakes are one of my favourite!! 

This is a lovely romantic desert for you and your beloved, it's super simple too. 

Here's what you do....

200g digestives
80g unsalted butter (melted)
200g cream cheese
100ml double or whipping cream
4+ tbsp seedless raspberry jam (to taste)
Fresh raspberries and icing sugar ~ to decorate 
  1. Crush digestives until they are crumbs.
  2. Add butter to crumbs and mix until it looks like damp sand.
  3. Press into the base of a loose bottomed tin of your choice. (I used my 18cm round cake tin)
  4. Chill for 15mins.
  5. Mix the Jam to loosen it then add to the cheese and mix until smooth.
  6. Whip the cream until thick but be careful not to do it too much as you'll get butter!!
  7. Whisk cream into cheese mixture by hand until smooth.
  8. Pour onto the chilled base and give that baby a wiggle to smooth it out.
  9. Chill for a minimum of 1 hour.
  10. If required pile raspberries in the middle and sprinkle on some icing sugar.

I LOVE this sexy little cheesecake and so will your loved ones.


Until next time...
