A lovely three layered cake with earthy nutty flavour from the pistachios and zesty overtones from the not-too-sweet buttercream
Potato salad, perfect for BBQ’s with fresh summery flavours
Blinis aren’t hard to make so why do they only get served at posh parties? These ones are made with three types of creme fraiche.
I love the refreshing blend of fruits that you get in Pimm’s: strawberry, cucumber, orange and mint. I’ve been thinking about how best to combine all the flavours into a cupcake and this is the result. The buttercreams all work really well, none of them overpowered each other including the cucumber which I thought would be awful because it’s quite watery.
If you haven’t tried samphire before, I can only describe the texture as like spaghetti, it’s very smooth and salty to boot. Here’s my recipe with a pinch more flavour, but it’s still good with plain ol’ butter.
A classic recipe that’s sure to impress anyone! It’s so easy to make it look stunning, fresh fruit really sets it off. I use buttercream to fill it with fresh cream on top with a little lemon juice and rind to cut through the sweetness of the filling.
Make the best of summer fruits and enjoy a British tradition, stawberries and cream, with a twist! The best thing is these aren’t too sweet, with the lemon just curbing the sweetness of the strawberries.
