Peppermint Pavlova

Peppermint Pavlova with strawberries and chocolate! It’s refreshingly MINTY meringue that has a CRISP crust and soft, LIGHT interior served with FLUFFY whipped cream, JUICY strawberries, little BITTER chocolate, RED & WHITE candy cane pieces and Marianne Crush! Perfect flavour and colour combinations for Christmas dessert, aren’t they?  I chose piping the meringue into disks for individual desserts, but it works as in a pavlova cake […]

Christmas countdown may be over but these spicy macarons are going to make you love gingerbread again, and if you have too many gingerbread cookies left you may want to add some more of those in form of crumbs, either in the shells or filling.

I have done choux pastry before, but never have they looked as impressive as this.  This was my first croquembouche and it won’t be the last, that you can be sure of. It’s as diverse as other cakes as you can amend the size, use different fillings and play with the decorations. Here’s how I made […]
