Spooktacular Halloween Pavlova

Spooktacular Halloween Pavlova

This Spooktacular Halloween Pavlova would make an impressive centrepiece. Marshmallowy meringue filled with a chocolate cream and raspberries, topped with more of the same plus chocolate soil, raspberry blood coulis and meringue ghosts and chocolate spiders. Try if you dare…..

Halloween is such a great excuse to get creative when I bake and make some fun treats to share with my friends, family and blog readers. There is just so much scope to get messy in the kitchen and create something that looks fun and tastes delicious. This Spooktacular Halloween Pavlova is actually very easy to make and does not take as long as you might think.

Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Cake #GBBO #Veganweek

Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Cake #GBBO #Veganweek

This decadent Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Cake is great for those following a plant based diet. It is fudgy and delicious and the iced cobweb and added spiders are optional!

It is Vegan week on the Great British Bake Off tonight and for someone who has never made a vegan cake before, this proved to be a little tricky. However, thankfully after a third attempt in the kitchen last Friday, this Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Cake was created and I was very happy with it.

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.
