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.

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Mini Doughnut Cake

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Mini Doughnut Cake

This delicious Chocolate & Peanut Butter Mini Doughnut Cake is quite the showstopper and is actually much easier to make then you might think.

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Mini Doughnut Cake

This Chocolate & Peanut Butter Mini Doughnut Cake was another one of my madcap concoctions when I was messing around in the kitchen. I had been sent my new Bake Box subscription box to review and from the products inside it I decided to make some mini doughnuts, as they are something I had never attempted before.

Jammy Dodger Funfetti Sprinkles Cake #BakeoftheWeek

Jammy Dodger Funfetti Sprinkles Cake #BakeoftheWeek

I actually made this cake back in July for a friend’s husband, but what with the holidays and the my #GBBOBloggers2016 bake along I have a few bakes that I have not yet posted, which is why I will be featuring them over the next few weeks!

I totally made this Jammy Dodger Funfetti Sprinkles cake design on a whim. My friend said that her husband liked a Victoria sponge with jam and buttercream, which was a relatively easy cake to make. BUT this is me and I don’t like to just offer someone a Victoria Sponge for a commissioned birthday cake – oh no! No, I like to add my own spin on it and when I was delving into my cupboard, I found some unopened packets of jammy dodgers, that I had bought a few weeks earlier for the boys as they were on a deal at Poundland (3 for £1 – what a bargain! Except, it was not a bargain as the boys did not like them!), and some sprinkles. I figured, and hoped, that being a fan of jam cake the recipient would also be a fan of jammy biscuits and everyone likes sprinkles don’t they?

Easy Cake Pops

I have tried making homemade cake pops, and indeed a few years ago my Mum bought me a cake pop machine which made them fast and easily. However, decorating them has never been as easy, for me at least! Either the sticks fall of, or the weight of the chocolate coating makes the cake falls into the chocolate!!! Previously, I have tried all manner of things in my quest to make neat cake pops, and so far my Ferrero Rocher ones are my most successful ones to date.

Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes with Sprinkles

When I was a young girl, my brother and I used to be collected from school every Thursday by our grandparents, and we were allowed to visit a local bakery to choose a cake for an after school treat. My brother always had a chocolate covered sponge rectangle shaped cake which was topped with a chocolate flake, and I would alternate between a similar shaped cake but one which was covered in pink icing and filled with sponge and fondant cream or a mallow cone cake, topped with multi coloured sprinkles.
