Spiral Vegetable Tart

I wouldn’t mind being called a ‘tart’ if they meant this spiral veggie tart. This pastry delight is definitely more aesthetically pleasing than me, and it tastes delish too!

The good thing about this is that you can fill it with whichever veggies tickle your fancy, butternut squash, courgette, carrot, turnips, some weird looking thing you found in Aldi, the options are endless.

Flapjacks

Before you panic, they’re choccie chips not raisins – I’m not a sicko.

Flapjacks are such an underrated sweet treat, and they are sooo easy to make. Plus, if you’re feeling generous, they are very easily packaged up and delivered to friends, neighbours or randomers during quarantine. Obviously I didn’t do that lol, me and my family demolished them before I had the chance, but if you had a bigger heart and a smaller stomach than me, you could x

Italian Meringue Buttercream

Not overly sweet and smoother than my chat up lines – you won’t go back to the basic buttercream after getting your nashers round this.

There are 3 main types of buttercream – American, Italian meringue and Swiss meringue. There are some other irrelevant ones but these are the 3 top dawgs.

Vanilla Latte Cupcakes

Now I’ve always been more of a tea gal myself, but the struggle of making it into anatomy on 4 hours sleep has forced me to branch out to coffee. I must admit I’m a bit of a baby when it comes to coffee – just about handling a brew with half a pint of milk and 236487293487 sugars. I do, however, enjoy a vanilla latte which is why these bad bois have been rustled up.

How to hand-paint a cake

I like to think of cake as a blank canvas (but it’s so much better than an actual canvas because you can eat it afterwards).

There are so many techniques out there for decorating cakes, from sculpting fondant to mirror glazing. Hand painting is one that is not seen as often, but can result in a cake that’s (almost) as beautiful as you 😉 x

Christmas Leftovers Pie

So you overdid it on the food front yet again this year. You’re about to wrap yourself in bacon because you are a pig. But it was all fun and games on the big day, now your mum is forcing you to eat turkey sandwiches for the foreseeable future.

Not to worry!!! This pie makes you forget all your turkey nightmares and hides all those leftovers under a delish pastry lid.

Berry Trifle

What do you call a gun with 3 barrels? A trifle. HA. Ok I’ll stop now.

Now I like to think of trifle as a massive, sweet, calorie-filled lasagne, and everyone likes lasagne. What makes this Timperley Trifle timp-ly the best is that nothing has to be made from scratch – so you just layer all your favourite goodies and call it a day, ideal.
