Lemon curd is one of our very favourite toppings for toast. Its zesty and light. This recipe has a few uses other than gobbling it on toast. We use it to fill lemon tarts, or on top of sponge cakes or in lemon top muffins. This does need to be kept refrigerated once made but it is really easy to do.

Frangipanes are little tart cases filled with an almond sponge. The mix is very easy to make, and you can store it in a piping bag, making it easier to pie straight into the cases!

Make your own lining paste quickly and easily in our latest recipe blog. It really is the best stuff in the world; you can make a jar of it and leave it in the fridge. Brush it on any tin and nothing will stick. We use it mostly for bundt rings, where you need the batter to get right into the shapes to give you great definition. You can totally use it for any thing though!
