Recipe Blog #16 – Lemon Curd

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.

Recipe Blog #14 – Italian Meringue

Lovely and light with a bit of chewiness. Or super soft Italian style. These Italian Meringues are not really as daunting as you might think. The trick really is to warm your sugar and to use cream of tartar. A clean bowl is super necessary. And whisk whisk whisk! Check out our new Italian Meringue recipe here.

Recipe Blog #13 – Frangipane Tarts

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! Check out our recipe for a lemon curd and blueberry frangipane, which can easily be adapted to include rhubarb or apricot.

Recipe Blog #12 – Lining Paste

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!

Recipe Blog #11 – Frosted Berries

The recipe for these frosted berries are perfect for the topping on our savoy cake, or any other top of a cake, or mini cakes for that matter. They last for a little while in an air tight container in the fridge. They're also surprisingly really easy to do and add a touch of class to any cake for which they are a topping!

Our Trip to The Festival of Thrift 2021

Very early mornings and superbly late nights, far too much coffee, live music, high spirits and lots of dancing. We are of course talking about our visit to The Festival of Thrift 2021! Learn more and see some pics of our stall this year in our latest blog post.

Our Trip to Bishop Auckland Food Festival 2021

We were so pleased to be back at The Bishop Auckland Food Festival earlier in October 2021. After the festival was postponed from the spring, we feared it may have been cancelled altogether. It was great to be back with all the other traders and festival go-ers for what was a fantastic weekend (despite the weather). Read more in our latest blog!
