Walnut & Raspberry Syrup Cake

Walnut & Raspberry Syrup Cake B

This cake was inspired by a recent holiday, one where almost every dessert was soaked in syrup! It seemed a bit peculiar and funny at first, but it soon became the signature of meals out. Here, the fresh zing of the raspberries contrasts beautifully with the sweet, delicate walnut sponge. And it tastes all the better with a splash of cream! P.S. Don’t worry if the raspberries get hidden within the cake, they’ll soon reappear when the cake is cut.

Malted Chocolate Cubes

Malted Chocolate Cubes B

I love this chocolate cake recipe, it’s rich and moist and super-chocolatey! Topped with malted frosting and a Malteser for good measure, they make quick and easy petits fours. I particularly like these chilled, amping up the luxury factor!

Macaron Éclairs

Macaron Éclairs B

It seems a bit odd that I was inspired by écalirs when I have a strong dislike for choux pastry. But this works as the perfect replacement, in fact it’s more than perfect – what’s the word for that please? Crisp macaron shells, encasing fresh vanilla cream, dipped in chocolate on one side; no choux needed, that’s what I’m talking about!
