Marvelous Marzipan

Hate it or love it? I know some people just don’t like marzipan but personally I think it’s delicious!

Terry’s Chocolate Orange Ganache

Creamy, rich and orangey, chocolate orange ganache has it all. If you’re looking to add flavour to your cake, a chocolate orange ganache is really easy and makes a good base to cover a cake if you’re using fondant. Whilst also not being as intensely sweet as using buttercream.

Gluten Free & Vegan Valentine’s Day Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake Pops

If you want some sugar love all you need is cake pops, and maybe a bunch more biscuits, sweets and chocolate. It’s a bit late for Valentine’s Day now but I’m going to tell you about what I made for my Valentine (and half the office) anyway!
