I've been rolling these swiss rolls all different ways with various fillings and flavours. These were ordered as presents... to be precise..for ppl that like minimal cream on their cakes..these would be perfect since there is no cream frosted on the rolls. Comes in a beautiful box...perfect for spring..guess im already thinking ahead of the winter months!

As you all know ( if u've been following my blog ) im an avid fan of maltesers and all things malt. This cake is maltilicious! Chocolate cake frosted with white chocolate malt buttercream sprinkled with maltesers. I actually used white malt and horlicks ( my fave night time drink) mixed together to give the perfect aroma....such a toasty cake!

This dessert is scrumptious!Tastes like chocolate mousse but only better...a cross between it and ice cream. Served cold with vanilla icecream, berries or whipped cream.Chocolate Marquises are normally kept frozen and can be kept for months. Just pull it out of the fridge and u can slice a piece to serve anytime you have company.

Winter months are full of festivities and parties meaning lots of good food...These past weeks have been a whirl of dinners with friends and family(im still counting how much turkey i have consumed).I made this cake since its light and really refreshing. Its an orange cake with soft sponge and mandarin frosting. A citrusy end to a heavy winter's meal.Delicious!

My strawberry rolls are becoming such a hit that im getting orders for them non-stop these past three weeks..I bet it's because xmas is drawing closer and i guess red strawberries visually looks very christmassy..This is a specially decorated roll with white,milk&dark chocolate flakes sprinkled on the sides,with white chocolate mousse cream rolled inside.Yum!P.s..enough for at least eight to enjoy
I was always wondering how a strawberry shortcake would taste like with chocolate cake instead of vanilla.There was no where i could buy any so i made some to satisfy my curiosity. Wow it was delicious...especially with an extra creamy chocolate chestnut glaze ontop...chestnuts..just to tie it all in with the xmas festivities....

I had some big juicy strawberries left from an order and decided to give it a go with a new shortcake recipe i've been meaning to bake for ages. Delicious soft cake really goes well with sweet strawberries..it was a wonderful self indulgent treat!

Today was a wonderful day! I catered 350 cupcakes for a dear friend of mine who got engaged and married today. It was a beautiful ceremony. The cupcakes were placed throughout the rooms and eaten as a mid morning treat with tea and biscuits. I had to take this picture of a cute little girl enjoying her cupcakes...It was just delightful to look at!

A series of wedding cupcakes i baked over the weekend. The bride specified that she wanted her wedding cupcakes to be tiered into different fruits...must've been beautiful to have hundreds of cupcakes cascading colourfully instead of a normal wedding cake! Im waiting till she gets back from her honeymoon to ask for some pictures! Keep you all posted...
I've been getting alot of orders for my delicious cake rolls that many customers have been asking for newer flavours.So every sunday luncheon with my family i've been trying out new ideas to roll my cake with. This week is assorted fruits rolled with light sponge cake. Perfect for those who love light desserts.
