Melting Snowman Gingerbread Biscuits

I Instagrammed these biscuits when I made them last year and they were such a hit I thought I’d post the recipe so we can all make them!

Skeleton Gingerbread Men

These gingerbread skeletons are my new favourite things to make. It’s the 27th of October, and I’ve already made (and eaten) 3 batches. They look adorable, and they’d be a perfect half term activity to do with kids (if you’re not too worried about the skeleton-y-ness..) And, even better, you don’t need any fancy apparatus, just a gingerbread man cutter and an icing bag, although any … Continue reading Skeleton Gingerbread Men

Scottish Tablet

Although at first I was reserved about Scottish Tablet – I’m not a huge fan of fudge, but I have firmly fallen for it’s crumbly, grainy texture with complete conviction. I began making it for my boyfriend – it’s his kryptonite (a bit like the Witch in Hansel and Gretel). Mainly to justify the quantity of chocolate I consume, obviously.  It’s also really fun to … Continue reading Scottish Tablet

I was comfortable that I had the … Continue reading A wonderful Valentine’s in and some great romantic ideas.

The New Year’s resolution.

Of all the New Year’s resolution clichés, I have gone for the most predictable: ‘lose weight and get fitter'(I mean, among others, (apparently I have a lot of room for improvement)).  I yearn to reach my pre-uni weight, but alas, I fear the Domino’s pizzas have proven the old saying, ‘A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips’. However, 2016 isn’t just any … Continue reading The New Year’s resolution.

Christmas biscuit houses

These biscuits are absolutely beautiful! Yes they took bloody ages to make, but the mixture of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and orange zest makes these so Christmassy and wonderful! They’re not too difficult if you have patience and are so cool as a different biscuit to have with a cup of tea or hot chocolate! You’ll need: 200g butter 200g muscovado sugar 2 (heaped) tablespoons golden syrup … Continue reading Christmas biscuit houses
