Vegan Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

19th February 2018

I did not ever think vegan gluten free cinnamon rolls could be a thing. Definitely not something that actually tasted like a cinnamon roll. Here we are though. After a banging plate of cinnamon rolls, I can confirm that vegan gluten free cinnamon rolls are somethin’ rather special! You can subscribe to my YouTube channel right here! If you watch my video, you’ll see that I am not keen on day old cinnamon rolls. These are most definitely best served warm right after they’ve been baked. If you are eating them on day two or three, give them 30 secs+ in the microwave to warm them through and make everything gooey again. It makes the world of difference!

Vegan Gluten Free Pancakes

12th February 2018

Vegan Gluten Free Pancakes Pancake Day is one of my fave days of the year! It always has been and I’ve always been a greedy guts with pancakes. For as long as I can remember I would enjoy Pancake Day by demolishing 7 or 8 pancakes, after dinner. Of course, I wasn’t eating vegan gluten free pancakes so I always felt so sick afterwards but it never put me off! Since my intolerances to gluten, eggs and dairy came about, I tried various ‘free from’ pancake mixes, using a ‘chia egg’ to replace the actual egg. You can just imagine how ghastly those pancakes were! I then just left the thin crepe pancakes for a while, opting for the American style of fluffy pancake instead… For Pancake Day 2018 HOWEVER, I was pretty damn adamant that I was going to eat 8 thin crepe pancakes on Pancake Day once more! I worked and failed and worked and […]

Biscuit Meringue Cake Tutorial

5th February 2018

Wowee! THE trend of 2018 hit us in January!! Strong start to the year for us cakers with the Biscuit Meringue Cake! If you’re on Instagram, you can’t have missed these cakes popping up here, there and everywhere, and they are beautiful. To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to call these “cakes” because they don’t seem to have an official name as of yet so, creative as ever, I settled with Biscuit Meringue Cake. Ironically, there is no cake included in the Biscuit Meringue Cake, however, I think this would be a great design for layers of sponge filled with piped cream, swiss meringue buttercream, or creme patissiere and topped with lashings of fruit!

Valentine’s¬†Biscuit Meringue Cake Given that Valentine’s Day is almost upon us, I chose to do a heart-shape Biscuit Meringue Cake but, by far, the most common shapes for these cakes are numbers […]
