Double treats this afternoon for the Christmas Robin and Bauble workshop. We had Marzipan Bundt Cake AND this lovely seasonal pavlova - well it is nearly Christmas! Recipe here Thank you to everyone who came cx
Next week's workshops cake will be this yummy Christmassy bundt cake. Its a cross between cake and stollen with marzipan running through the middle with a delicious cream cheese frosting. Get the recipe here
There will also be the old favourites - butter shortcake biscuits. I quite fancy some hazelnut/cocoa meringues which MAY make it to the workshops ;) .....
Gone back to an old favourite this week's cake. Have tried many chocolate cake recipes over the years but ALWAYS return to this one. Get the recipe here or better still order your own Be-Ro recipe book here
One lady for tomorrow's robin workshop is gluten free so I will be making this old favourite. The kitchen smells lovely as I've just boiled the whole oranges and leaving to cool - once the pips are out the whole oranges, skin and all, get whizzed up and go into cake!
