Happy New YeAR!!

It has been too long since I have managed to catch up here! but tomorrow is a new year we shall see what the future holds and I will endeavour to be a better blogger lol!



Oh Bailey’s Log – how I love you!

This has to be my favourite dessert after pavlova. seriously I can eat it for breakfast, lunch and tea. I cant because I would fall down if I ate it all the time but mmmmm yummy!



ok the details…

you need:

choc ripple biscuits (or the GF variety that I have here if you need GF)

Whipped Cream - (I used about 500ml to make two)

Baileys (or any liqueur you like)

a flake or choc sprinkles to decorate

icing sugar for the whipped cream.


What to do…

whip your creamIMG_4424

on your serving plate/platter put a layer of cream

pour about 1/2 inch of Baileys into a small bowl and dip the biscuits one at a time into it. (for stronger taste dip both sides)

coat both sides of the first biccie with cream and place on it side.

Repeat the dipping and coating with cream until you make it into a log shape


or layer it like a cake



keep doing this till your biccies are all gone.

cover the while thing with cream and decorate with sprinkles or chock bits or what ever takes your fancy!


This is the mummy daddy version with alcohol

And this is the kiddy version without.


Nothing better to have on New Years Eve!!


enjoy J

Journey to ordinary reindeer cake pops


So I decided to try and make some cake pops last night. they cant bee too hard right? Right!? NO THEY ARE NOT EASY??? I managed to get ONE yes ONE that looked sorta ok. And then I realised – he has no eyes!!! Poor Rudolf lol

Anyway here is my photo journey to smooshed cake pops :)


1. make mud cake from packet mix – GF of course :)IMG_3161 IMG_3163

2. break up into bowl – yes it took me three bowls to find one that I can mix it with the icing since my normal mixing bowl was being cleaned :P

(so the step was to mix icing and cake together) IMG_3167

3. roll icing and cake mix into balls IMG_3168 IMG_3172 IMG_3174

4. dip in chocolate, add a jaffa and pretzels (and yes the first thought whenever I even think of the word pretzel is that line from Seinfield : these Pretzels are making me thirsty”)


FAIL! IMG_3185My one and only semi decent rudolf that needs eyes :)


My goal for holiday fun with the kids is to master the craft of cake pops :)
