It’s almost Easter time and myself and a couple of my friends Mari-Louise and Karen had an idea to create a little series which includes some cool things that you can make/bake/take part in for Easter. A little series full of inspirational goodies for you and your little ones. And because I like being in the kitchen, I thought I’d show you how to make these sweet and tasty little Easter Bunny Meringues!Continue Reading…
Easter is on it’s way and this year will be the first time that we actually get to indulge in a bit of a Easter egg hunt with Nina James, which I’m really looking forward to. I also thought that it would be fun to create some themed cupcakes, which I don’t really do a lot of, but might make more time for because even though they were a bit of a mission I really enjoyed making them and so did Nina. She was really good at poking and then taking bites out of random ones hehe. Now if I was a baking assistant that’s what I would be doing to. Best job on earth.
These Easter Bunny Oreo cupcakes are literally packed full of Oreos inside and on top, so if you’re a fan then you’re going to like them. A lot.
Easter is almost upon us and Keedo, who is a proudly South African brand who design and manufacture the most beautiful, quality kiddie clothing and who also sell awesome toys ranges, books, bath/body goodies for kids and homeware items asked me if I’d share a recipe that was not only delicious but easy enough for anyone big and small to tackle. So I thought it would be awesome to make a Pecan Carrot Cake with Cinnamon and Vanilla Cream Cheese Icing.Continue Reading…
It’s almost Easter time and for fun, Royal Baking Powder challenged me and the wonderful Katelyn from The Kate Tin to each come up with an Easter themed recipe. So what we decided to do is send one another a simple recipe for something that we like to make and then get the other person to ‘Easter-fy’ it up.
I sent Katlyn one of my favourite recipes for flapjacks, which she then used to make delicious Hot Cross Bun flapjacks with that look amazing! I actually can’t wait to try them!
She, in turn, sent me her recipe for an awesome Funfetti cake that I decided to jazz up into a Funfetti Speckled Egg Ice-Cream Cake! I’m talking creamy homemade speckled egg ice-cream sandwiched between two layers of vanilla Funfetti sponge, topped with whipped cream and sprinkle magic!
We all know that this time of year means that whether you like it or not and let’s face it, who is not going to like it, you’re going to overdo it on the chocolate front. The shops are busting at the seams with all sorts of tidbits calling your name as you push your trolly past Easter displays hoping that your willpower will prevent you from buying your 8th box of marshmallow eggs!
I have to admit I’m slightly addicted to them which means that our pantry is currently stocked with a couple of boxes. Yesterday I was looking at the numerous wrappers leftover from one of my marshmallow egg binges and I thought to myself, you know what would be amazing? Chocolate Marshmallow Egg Mousse!
I started by Googling a recipe for marshmallow mousse, a few came up, which meant I was off to a good start. I then decided that I’d make my own version of it by using chocolate marshmallow eggs instead of normal marshmallows and then place my gooey chocolaty concoction inside a bowl made of chocolate! I mean who wouldn’t want a chocolate dessert that comes in a chocolate shaped bowl that you can eat afterwards?!
How often have you asked yourself what there is to do with kids in Johannesburg? I find myself battling with this dilemma pretty much every weekend, which drives me nuts because you want to be able to go to a place that not only they will like, but you will too! So when my lovely friend Gina King suggested going to The Field Berry Farm which involves, the outdoors, raspberry picking, raspberry eating, cake, food, homemade lemonade, beer and a play area we were in like flint! They even have a farm bike track for older kids, so take your bikes if you feel like a bit of a ride!
This beautiful little farm located in the South of Joburg has it all and it makes for such a wonderful full afternoon out for everyone and anyone. I mean who wouldn’t want to blissfully walk up and down rows of bushes laden with raspberries as the wind blows through your hair while you pick berries to your heart’s content.
