MOLTEN WHITE CHOCOLATE PUDDING

My husband doesn’t like chocolate.  Or so he claims.  No, wait.  That’s not correct, he doesn’t like milk and dark chocolate… but he ADORES white chocolate.  So, when I saw these little molten puddings, I knew I had found a recipe that would really please him.  My kids and I have no problems with any…

SWEET SUSHI

I have been wanting to make sweet sushi for a while now!  I always thought that it looked great.  My daughter’s birthday party was the perfect occasion as it was a “sea themed” party.  I have to say that this was probably the most successful dish of the buffet as it did look quite real and impressive,…

Sea Marshmallow Pops

SEA MARSHMALLOW POPS

Organising a little girl’s birthday party can be lots of fun… but it also requires a bit of research.  Especially when the little one has a clear idea of what she wants (and she’s only 5!).  The theme HAD to be The Little Mermaid.  So I started looking around the web for ideas (thank you…

The Little Mermaid Fondant Cake

THE LITTLE MERMAID FONDANT CAKE

As I am sure you have noticed, my eldest daughter loves The Little Mermaid so she requested an “Ariel cake” for her 5th birthday party.  I must admit, I was a bit worried about it as making a human form out of fondant is not as easy as making an animal… in fact, it could…

ROSE CHEESECAKE

Lately I have really felt like eating cheesecake.  I had some cream cheese in the fridge, but I didn’t feel like making a fruit cheesecake.  While looking in the pantry I saw a bottle of rose syrup that we bought from the Indian grocery store.  We all love this syrup and we drink it diluted…
