Sweet Mini Bunnies

For Easter this year I have been baking batches of mini bunny vanilla biscuits to give as gifts. The biscuits are really easy to make and can either be left plain, or decorated with royal icing.

The recipe I always use for my vanilla biscuits is here.

You can package the biscuits in cellophane bags or store them in a jar or container for at least 3 weeks,  however don't expect them to be stored for a long time because they are so delicious, everyone is likely to eat them quickly.

You can also use the biscuits as cupcake cute.........

I hope you all have fun baking Easter treats xx

Vintage Chic Cupcakes

Here are some of the cupcakes I have been making this week for some lovely clients. I was really pleased to get an order for vintage-inspired creations as I love making roses and adorning cupcakes with lots of sugarpaste decorations. These cupcakes were filled with lemon curd and had a thin layer of lemon buttercream on top before the sugarpaste covering and decorations were added. I used royal icing to pipe some dots and stripes to add a bit more texture to the cakes.

And here are the cupcakes together on my new chandelier cake stand from the US.  I just love this cake took a few months to arrive in the UK, but for anyone who is interested in purchasing one, you can find them on Amazon here.

Hope you are all having a lovely week.

Happy baking xx

Busy in the Kitchen

Over the last week I have been busy making different sets of biscuits all using my favourite sugar cookie recipe. It's completely fail-proof and always retains its shape during baking. You can find it here.

Here are some of the biscuits I made:

The first set is my 'Fashionista biscuit' range which includes handbags, dresses and shoes, perfect for a girly afternoon tea.....

Next is my 'French chic' range - pink poodles and Eiffel towers - so adorable.

These sets and others will be available soon at 'Not on the High Street' and can be shipped across the UK. Stay tuned for more biscuits soon.

Happy baking xxx
