Pink Ombre Madeleines #GBBO #PatisserieWeek

Pink Ombre Madeleines #GBBO #PatisserieWeek

These pretty little Pink Ombre Madeleines would make a lovely addition to any birthday party, afternoon tea or mini celebration.

It is semi finals week already! This makes me a little sad, for it means that GBBO 2018 is almost finished for another year. However, for my waistline it is probably a good thing, because all this baking while delicious is not good for my figure!  This week is also Patisserie Week and I have attempted a new bake this time, with my Pink Ombre Madeleines.

Toffee Apple Danish Pastries #GBBO #DanishWeek

Toffee Apple Danish Pastries #GBBO #DanishWeek

These delicious and melt in the mouth Toffee Apple Danish Pastries are buttery, crispy and sweet and if you make your own pastry, very satisfying too.

Welcome to week 8 of the GBBO and therefore week 8 of my bakes along linky (aka GBBOBloggers2018 / GBBOBakeoftheweek) and it is a Bake Off first this week as we see Danish Week. In celebration of this, I have attempted to make some Toffee Apple Danish Pastries and I even made my own Danish pastry from scratch, which is a first for me too!

Cherry and Chocolate Mummy Pie #GBBO #PastryWeek

Cherry and Chocolate Mummy Pie #GBBO #PastryWeek

This Cherry and Chocolate Mummy Pie has been inspired by Halloween for a bit of easy dessert fun. Why not give it a try for your family and enjoy seeing the ‘bloody’ cherry filling ooze out!

It is Pastry week on the Great British Bake Off tonight and while the pies featured on the show will be very ornate and pretty, I just did not have the time last weekend to make a show stopper of a pie. Instead I did find time to make this Halloween inspired Cherry and Chocolate Mummy Pie.

Sticky Gingerbread #GBBO #Spiceweek

Sticky Gingerbread #GBBO #Spiceweek

This gorgeous Sticky Gingerbread is packed full of warming spices and is delicious. It is perfect for when the weather turns more autumnal. 

This delicious Sticky Gingerbread is very easy to make and is perfect for anyone who enjoys the warming flavours of ginger. I have added coconut milk and desiccated coconut to my gingerbread, as I really love how well this compliments the cake and adds an extra flavour dimension. However, this is optional and would work equally as well without any coconut being added.

Raspberry , Lemon and White Chocolate Roulade #GBBO #Dessertweek

Raspberry , Lemon and White Chocolate Roulade #GBBO #Dessertweek

My Raspberry, Lemon and White Chocolate Roulade is delicious! Mallowy meringue filled with a decadent lemon and white chocolate cream and fresh raspberries, it really is very, very nice.

This dreamy and creamy and yummy Raspberry , Lemon and White Chocolate Roulade was actually not as hard to make as I thought. Having made meringues and pavlovas many times before, it was nice to give this a go to see what it was like. The combination of flavours works really well, so if you have never made a roulade before, give it a try.
